|Lotus is considered marginally hardy. You can leave it in the whiskey barrel and it should overwinter okay. If the water freezes solid the tubers will die. Or, you can store your lotus in the refrigerator either in a sealed ziploc bag with sand or in a jar of water in the refrigerator. Or, you can keep it alive in an indoor pond or aquarium with strong lighting. You might also have good luck simply storing it in a cool room in sand in a bucket or a bag. Good luck with your lotus!
