Not sure what you need to start a water garden? Not sure how to plant a lily? Read on.... In order to plant your water lily you will need a pond, heavy top soil (red or black), either fresh cow dung or vermicompost to provide nourishment to the plant and NPK fertilizer (power or pellet form.) - To begin planting your water lily, fill the pond with 1 to 2 inches of either fresh cow dung or vermicompost. Water lilies need plenty of nourishment, starting off with a base of fresh cow dung or vermicompost provides nourishment to the plant and assists with flower production. - Next, fill the pond with about 5 inches of top soil and push in NPK fertilizer pellets or mix about a tea spoonful of NPK into the soil. - Using your fingers, tightly pack the soil. Next, hollow out a hole that is about 1-1.5 inches deep at the center of the pond and place your water lily. Spread the roots of the plant and close the hole with soil. Compress to ensure the plant stays in place. Ensure that the crown of the plant (that is the growing tip or the point from where the new leaves or buds emerge) is not covered by soil. - You may add a layer of sand to help keep the water clear. - Now carefully fill the pond up to the brim with water without disturbing the soil surface. You may use a plastic sheet to avoid disturbing the soil. Your water lily is now fully planted. - Allow your water lily 24-48 hours to settle.
