Seed Germination

Sacred Lotus seeds are large and have hard coat - but are actually straightforward to germinate and can remain viable for hundreds of years!

  • Using a metal nail file, hacksaw blade etc scrape away at the side of the seed until a tiny amount of the white seed kernel is visible
  • Be careful not to dame the seed kernel
  • Soak in room temperature water for 3 days, changing water daily
  • Seeds should swell to almost double their original size.
  • For any seeds not swollen, file the seed a bit more and repeat soaking process
  • Plant seeds 2cm deep in a pot of damp compost that is standing in a plant saucer of about 1cm water
  • Ideally use rain water of distilled water 
  • Keep at 20-30c in a bright spot - if night time temperatures drop below this, use a heat mat
  • Pot on as required, keeping the pots in saucers of water
  • Plant out as you with any other water lily in late spring
