LOTUS BIO:
‘Dripping Dew’ is a freshly-named medium sized lotus that is known for exceptional flowering! The superb flowers open a lively, bright pink hue which gently fades to a shade of blush-pink over a few days! Many layers of various sized petals make for an intricate double flower which is longer-lasting than many other lotus varieties! This lotus typically does not set seed, but instead produces plump, yellow-green petaloids in the center of the flower–an interesting complement to the gorgeous flowers!

NOTES FROM THE EXPERTS: It is important to handle your lotus tuber with care and not disturb or break the growing tips. Refrigerate your tuber until you are ready to plant. Do not fertilize until you see the first arial leaf, and fertilize lightly until maturity. When mature, a lotus flowers best with regular fertilization. We recommend Chalily Lily and Lotus fertilizer for all flowering aquatic plants.
