Nelumbo nucifera


A lovely surprise! We chose Beauty Ning because we can never find enough single-petal white lotus, especially ones with a florescent green receptacle and bright yellow stamens. But this lovely lotus captured us with the perfect bud. And it's not white but the palest of shade of pink. Green and pink perfection! Good flower production in a medium height lotus means it is dynamite in a pot! It will also grow well in a smaller pot to produce a very small bowl lotus.

Directions for planting as a micro lotus are found below.

Flower Color: Very Pale Pink
Plant Height: Exquisite of Bowl Lotus, 6”-12” tall

Flower Type: Single or Few Petals, less than 20 petals
Pot Size: 6” and wider, 4”-10” deep

Pot-in-Pot Method for Micro Lotus
“Lotus cultivars developed to grow and flourish in very small pots (4”-12” wide, 8” or less deep). These hybrids usually stay less than 13” tall.”

We recommend growing these varieties using the pot-in-pot method.

Choose two pots:

Pot A – small display pot. This is the smallest of the two pots and should measure at least 4” smaller in diameter and 2” less in height than Pot B. The lotus tuber is planted in Pot A. This pretty pot can be removed from Pot B for display when lotus is blooming.

Pot B - larger outside growing pot, not for display. Pot A should be able to sit in Pot B with about at least a 2” margin on all sides and at top.

1) Fill Pot A (display pot) ¾ full of topsoil.
2) Fill to top with water and plant tuber in Pot A.
3) Place Pot A in Pot B.
4) Slowly fill Pot B with water, making sure that there is at least 1” of water above the top rim of Pot A, the display pot with planted tuber.
5) Place in direct sun. Keep water level higher than top rim of Pot A.
