      Water lily not blooming

      I have a lily that has not bloomed in two years. I'm not sure anymore which one it is, the koi sucked out the marker. I know I repotted it from one of my others. Any idea why it's not blooming. I have 7 others and they are all doing well.

      If you haven't repotted it in 2 years, it probably needs repotting.
      Also depending on the variety it may need a bigger pot, more soil.
      Here is a link to my potting recipe.

      It hasn't bloomed since I repotted it. The spread of the pads is almost five feet, the plant is healthy the pot is the same size as the rest of my lilies. Just no blooms. I've fertilized it regularly and cared for it like the rest. That's what makes it so puzzling. I'll check out your potting mix and see if that helps. Thanks.
