What is proper water lotus maintenance?

Yellowing and dead leaves should be removed as noticed. These plants need to be kept in warm temperatures and out of the humidity. They should be fertilized throughout the spring and re-potted every 2 to 3 years in order to clear out dead tubers and add new, fresh soil.

water lotus can either be planted in aquatic plant pots or directly in a hole created at the bottom of the pond. The planting of the lotus itself will not be affected by the method you choose. Once you determine whether to use plant pots or plant pockets, you can begin the whole process.
