    Sprout? Lotuses when they start growing will send up floating pads first. These pads are usually only about the size of a half dollar at first but will grow larger. After a while, aerial pads will start growing. Sometimes the first small floating pads will die, but more pads will come up if the plant is not disturbed. I suggest just leaving the plant alone and see if additional pads will show over the next week or two. Make sure it is getting plenty of sunlight.

    First time posting pictures, so hope I'm doing it properly. I've ordered pond tabs, so am anxious to receive them and everything up in the outdoor barrels.

    Nice! Though you could at least give those each their own cup for now.

    OMG amazing.

    I'll have to look back to see what prizes I promised.

    I put each seed / plant, in it's own cup I went back and read last year's grow out thread and it seemed like many waited until late April / early May, to place them outside.

    Our weather is up and down, in the 80's, then cooler temps expected. Am I hurting them, delaying putting them outside? Also, will sand work as a planting medium, or should it be yard dirt. I don't really have a place I can dig up...I do have some plain potting soil.

    Thanks!

    Based on my research here (especially Matherfish's site, thanks!!!) it seems that lotus are heavy feeders. I'd prefer not to use fertilizer if possible, especially since my property is in a river watershed. Would compost teas, fish emulsion other more natural fertilizers work, or are tabs really the only way to go?

    If your pots are in your pond you would not want to use those. If the lotus are in tubs that are not in ponds you can use whatever you want to use. Just remember they love fertilizer. ��
