I'm just not sure where to post this and am hoping there are some tropical climate gardeners out there who can help me. I want to know how often Nelumbo Nucifera (sacred lotus) bloom in a tropical climate. If you had a large water garden with 15 of them, would they flower constantly or do they take a rest or break in certain seasons. I'm just wanting a rough estimate. The climate I'm in (Grenada) has a rainy and dry season. Also, does the water have to be fertilized or does it just eventually fertilize itself?
