What To Expect With Mail Order
Plants you receive by mail need time to adjust. Your water lily will arrive bare root (only root and little to no foliage). Upon arrival, they may not appear lush but given time & proper care, they will flourish!
Be sure to have planting materials on hand when your water lily arrives. The Water Lily Planting Kits can be purchased separately that will include: planting tub, planting media and plant fertilizer tablets.
Step 1: Fill a planting tub with 2" of a clay-based material and 2" of clay/soil mix. (not included with kit)
Step 2: Add a 3-4" layer of aquatic planting media on top.
Step 3: Plant the tuber in a horizontal position with the bottom root end close to the tub wall and the growing tip pointed upwards and towards the center. The tuber should be placed down into the soil just enough to be anchored with the growing tip exposed just above the planting media.
Step 4: If desired, place a light layer of gravel/rock on top of the planting media. (not included with kit)
Step 5: Place the planting tub into the pond. The water's surface level should be 3-6" above the growing tip of the stem.
Step 6: For water lilies, use 1 to 2 Thrive™ tabs every 2 to 4 weeks.

Regular fertilization of your Panama Pacific Tropical Water Lily will keep it growing well all season long. CrystalClear® Thrive™ Fertilizer Tablets can be pushed into the soil at planting time and from April through August, see label for fertilizer application rates.
For best results, trim or prune water lily as leaves and flowers begin to turn yellow or brown, remove them completely, discarding them to keep as much excess organic material out of water-body as possible.
