Lotus Plant update

Well it’s been 2 months and my lotus went nuts! The original seed has rotted away, and so far the 4th root system has sprouted.

I’ve not been a very good mommy to it as it only went into its heavy clay today, so the roots will finally manage to get some grip on something, and settle before the plant dies down during winter.
It’s interesting to see how it continues to grow and creates other ‘plants’ simply by shooting of to the side. This also explains why it’s considered a pest, it be hard to eradicate once you got it in a pond, and why they advise to plant it in a pot or fish pond.

The bad news is the other 2 seeds did not germinate, luckily I have 3 more seeds and I will plant those next spring.
