I would like to know if it's possible to grow a lotus, indoors, in a tub. The tub is 19 inches diameter, and 17 inches deep, and I have a spot where it can get lots of light, and is nice and warm. Is this possible?
I'll let you know what happens. My biggest concern was that the water would get stagnant, and stink. Maybe I could drop an air stone in there to provide a little circulation. The place I want to put it, is next to a big 9½ foot bay window with a south/southeast exposure, so it can get plenty of light, and the bottom of the tub can go up against the baseboard radiator. I just hope the tuber is still good. I picked it up, cheap, at the close of the Tropical Plant Industry Exposition trade show, in Ft. Lauderdale, at the end of January.
I'm not going to buy any new lights. Like I said, I got it cheap, so I'll put it next to the big window, and if it makes it - fine. Otherwise, I'll just toss it.
i think it is possble your tub is big enough for lotus to grow but lotus like sunshine the more sunshine it gets .the better it will grow so it would be much better if you can get some hydrophnic lights
