nelumbo lutea from seed


By Gray

Leicestershire, United Kingdom Gb

last year I grew N.Nucifera from seed set in May. It produced aerial leaves by late summer, but no flowers - and it died over winter (UK).
This year I am trying N.Lutea,. I have 2 seeds germinated with shoots about 4-6cm long.
Any suggestions about what to do next - I am thinking of potting it into loam in water about 25cm deep kept at 28C with a fish-tank heater, like I did with the Nucifera.
