Lotus seed growth (in progress)孵蓮子續篇
Day 20. Two leaves and the third leaf is coming. You can see the root already.
第20天. 已有2片小葉,第3片葉片已形成. 可以看到根已長出.
Planning to plant it into a water container with soil (better in clay soil) and hopefully the weather will be warmer by then.
Plant one in a large bucket with dirt 1.5-2 feet deep with some water over the soil. It will flower either in 3 months or next year. Put some copper things (pennies or other copper object so will not grow mosquitos).
They can be over winter outdoors with simply protection. The lotus root, leave and flowers can be veggies too!
You actually can purchase lotus seeds from dry lotus pods cheap from any craft store!
