Thanks, Jonathan! Did you watch that last link about feeding Lotus? I am going to try MiracleGro blue crystal fertilizer. Maybe my Lotus will bloom if I try that! The Pond Tabs just aren't doing it for them! Big Grin

I did check out the lotus one... I don't know about using the miracle grow like that... I have fish in the containers as well.... The ones without fish I'm definitely going to try. It really kills me that they'll grow so well, then just stop! Good thing is that I'm good at making them stop hahaha!
