I just want to show you my lotus flower plant
that I started back in November. I found the seeds
in my fall fling seeds
from tkhooper.(thanks TK)
I decided to try growing
one myself for our pond next year.
First I needed to sand the seed
shell with actual sandpaper. Then I put the seed
in water for about 3-4 weeks (til it sprouted). Then my husband planted it its current container.
I'm hoping it will keep on growing
....I did buy a great glass jar for the final container
but hubby doesn't agree.....so we'll see.....lol
Here's the new container.......
this container stand about 24"-26" tall and is about 18" in width. He's afraid the lotus will get stuck in the jar as the top opening is only around 6" in diameter....lol
Does anyone have an opinion? lol
