Waterlilies need a sunny position, where their leaves will not be splashed by moving water from things like fountains. In order to grow and flower well, they also like plenty of space for their roots, so if you are potting them choose a good large container - do not put them in small or cramped pots. For potted waterlilies, we recommend fertilising them once a year, and dividing or potting them on every two to three years.
Planting depths mentioned on these pages refer to the depth of water over the crown of the plant (the depth of water over the soil level). Do not plant your variety deeper than this recommended range or the plant will not perform as well or may even not survive.
