POND PLANT BIO:
‘Pearls on a Red Plate’ is one of the best exquisite bowl-type for small containers Ð it bursts into bloom with bright pink – red double petals and sits high above its lustrous green foliage. It flowers heavily and can be brought inside when in bloom! Only 13′ tall, it’s perfect for small – medium containers and smaller ponds. Even with its tiny frame, this little lotus blooms, and blooms, and blooms some more! A tiny, but mighty bestseller!

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.
