What are the reasons for a lotus not blooming?
These plants often hold off on blooming until their 2nd year. They need full sun (at least 6 hrs) and very warm temps (preferably 80s) in order to bloom.
There are snails that do not let my lotus plant survive. What is cure for them?

My lotus has been active for about 4 years. It is in the same pot from when I planted it. I change some of the water regularly and I fertilizer with water pellets every few months. This is the longest it has gone without producing a new leaf. Should I be concerned.
Please include some photos, and I will be glad to help you. There could be many reasons for this happening, but seeing where it resides can help me narrow a few things down.
Please can you teach me how to grow my own backyard lotus... Container, the right soil, how much dirt and how much water etc....I'm a basic gardener but would like help in laymans' terms of how to grow my very own first lotus....thank you
