New for 2021 we are carrying Bonsai Water Lily kits. These kits contain dwarf varieties of Lotus water lilies suitable for growing in pots, patio urns, or even in your backyard pond. The kit comes with 6 yellow water lily seeds, water lily fertilizer, and complete instructions on how to grow water lilies from seed.

These seeds are dwarf varieties of Nelumbo water lilies, also called Lotus or Sacred Lotus water lilies. Using the supplied fertilizer you can grow these in any ceramic pot or other non-permeable container that holds at least one gallon of water and is at least 12" wide (the bigger the better). You can also use a glass water lily bowl available at most local larger craft stores. These do require weekly maintenance which includes replacing the water in your bowl.

Please note - most water lily seeds sold online are Nymphaea water lilies which will not grow in pots or patio urns.

Lotus lilies can be grown year-round indoors as long as they have at least 6 hours of sunlight. Outdoors they do require warmth to germinate and here in zone 7 we start them indoors in late April and move them outside to our patio in mid-May. In your backyard pond they are cold hardy to zone 5.

The seeds do require some prep work to get them to germinate and usually only 50% of seeds successfully germinate to form lilies. Compete instructions will be provided with your kit. The seeds germinate and grow quickly, but they will take approximately 90 days to flower. There is enough fertilizer provided for a one gallon pot to flower for one outdoor growing season, or approximately 6 months.

Lotus water lilies are perennials and sometimes they do take two growing seasons to flower. Similar to growing Dahlias, you can pull the root system and store over winter in water for most zones.
