The Lotus flower has been appreciated by poets, scholars and artists as well as ordinary citizens for thousands of years. In China lotus is an economically important aquatic plant. Use of the root, as food can be traced in history for three to five thousand years. Lotus seeds are also used as food and are known to be healthful. Immature seed pods and leaves are also used in food preparation. All parts of the lotus plant are known to be used in Chinese medicine. Lotus plants also have a religious significance in Buddhism.

Lotus tuber sizes vary depending on the variety. They all have at least two nice growing tips. Smaller lotus varieties have tubers 6"-8" long and can range from 1/2" thick to 1". Larger varieties can be up to 18"-20" long and 2"+ in diameter.

We ship the best lotus tubers in the USA! All of our lotus tubers are imported from Israel and each tuber is individually started in our greenhouses. The new growing tips use the tuber body as a source of early nutrition. Spots of mold may be present on the tuber body. This is normal. The tuber body is there only to feed the new plant shoot tips until it is carefully potted and can draw nutrition from the potting soil. If the tuber is firm it is fine. If it is mushy it is not good.

Be careful buying lotus! Some companies ship broken pieces tubers with no new growth shoots. If the price on lotus is too good to be true, use that as a warning sign indicating the quality of the tuber.

Hardy Water Lotus - Lotus are hardy perennials considered sacred in Buddhist's beliefs. This group of water garden plants are sold as tubers and dependent upon the variety, vary from as little as 3" long up to 18" long. The larger varieties have leaves capable of reaching 2 feet in circumference and colossal flowers up to 1 foot in diameter! The smaller varieties can have leaves and flowers as small as 2-3" but still require a spacious container to be able to spread out and attain optimum development.


Lotus are Voracious Eaters Get Lotus Food Too!

PLANTING WATER LOTUS - Wait until your pond gets up to 65-70 degrees. Once established in your pond they are a hardy plant and will come back year after year in even the coldest of climates when the water warms up. When your lotus is ready to plant, fill up a 5 to 10 gallon or 12 x 12 pot with 6" of topsoil with pea stone at a rate of 75% topsoil 25% pea stone. This will improve aeration in the soil. Place the lotus tuber with the growing tips straight upwards centered in the pot. Gently press the tuber into the mud being very careful not to damage the new growing tips. Add a 1" layer of gravel to cover the tuber and to keep the tuber from floating. Lotus are very heavy feeders, but should not be fertilized until they have put up two or three leaves. After they have set leaves they should be given 1 or 2 tabs of fertilizer per pot. Place it in the pond no more than 8 inches deep of water over the top of the pot. In the fall move the lotus to the deep water to winter over. Don't cut all the stems off as they provide nutrients to the root system.

All lotus on this page are good for any geographic area as long as it is planted and started in warm water. The will not start to develop until the water reaches 70 degrees. Keep in mind once they start to get going they are very invasive and the roots will branch out all over if not contained in a large pot. Don't direct bury it in your pond gravel or bottom. Starting it inside may get you blooms this year. But, more often than not a Lotus is a next-year type of plant for blooms.
