Dallas, TX (Vocus/PRWEB) February 11, 2011
Online pond filtration superstore Pond Filter (PondFilter.com) announces their 2011 crop of water lotus plants are now available for ordering and shipping.
Pond Filter offers one of the largest online selections of lotus plants anywhere, with 15 varieties to choose from including such popular ones as Mrs Perry Slocum and Chinese Double Rose. For the freshest and healthiest plants possible, all orders are harvested and shipped directly from the plant farm upon order. All lotus are shipped as tubers and must be planted by the customer. To prevent possible weekend holdover and to ensure the safety and integrity of the plant, Pond Filter only ships plant orders Monday through Wednesday. Orders placed after Wednesday will ship the following Monday, unless expedited shipping is requested. Additionally, due to shipping sensitivity, Lotus plants are only available in the late winter through April.
Customers are advised to be aware of their hardiness zone prior to placing orders. Lotus are very hardy plants once established, however in their infancy stages they are delicate and require warm water. It is recommended that lotus be kept in warm water for 10-14 days prior to being planted/ potted in a pond. It is also recommended that the pond water be above 65-70 degrees.
“We are excited about having a full season with our pond plants this year,” states a rep from Pond Filter. “Last season we were late getting our plants online, especially the Lotus, and missed out on a major portion of the season. This year we are ready from the start and have a tremendous crop of plants available”.
In addition to Lotus, Pond Filter also has other pond plants for sale including Hardy and Tropical Lilies, Marginals and even Oxygenating Grasses. Hardy Lilies are not available until mid spring.
