Considering this, how long does it take for a lotus seed to grow?

15-20 days

Secondly, how long does it take for a Lotus to flower? Lotus flowers have great ornamental value throughout their lifecycles. They bloom one after another. Therefore, though each flower only lasts three to four days, a group of them in a temperate area can bloom for one-and-a-half months in northern China and up to three months in southern China.

Keeping this in consideration, can we grow Lotus at home?

Considered stately and serene, a floating lotus (Nelumbo spp.) is an alternative to the standard houseplant. The flowering water plant can thrive indoors when grown properly in a container large enough to house its roots and provide the necessary water depth.

When should I start lotus seeds?

Start your lotus seeds in the first or second week of May. If you start your lotus in May, it will have plenty of time to mature and it will be able to survive the winter. (If the weather is too cold outside in May, you may start your lotus indoors for a very brief period.)
