Dividing Lotus

DIVIDING LOTUS

LOTUS should only be divided in the early spring, preferably before any major growth occurs. After early growth is seen, invert the lotus container like you would a mold and remove the lotus tuber and rinse the soil off. Be careful not to break any growth tips. Each individual tuber should have at least two growth tips. Re-plant one tuber per container. See Potting Lotus under Potting Aquatic Plants.
