Growing Lotus

austinfooseadvice1072

I cut off my lotus pod about a week after they lose their flowers. When the seeds start drying up in the pods, its been too long.

After I remove the seed, I set them aside for a few weeks to dry out; then I sandpaper or cut into one side, not too deep, but enough to puncture the outer skin. I put the seed in about an inch of water, in a shady spot.

They start sprouting in 4-7 days usually. The seeds should look similar to the one in this picture, dark, plump, and should feel firm.
