I need to fertilize the lilies but don't have any spikes or tabs on hand. For those that use everyday fertilizer what do you use, how much and how do you add it to the plants. Do you have any problems with it in the pond? I'm thinking Osmocote but I'm not sure if it's safe.

I use osmocote when I first pot up my lilies. Not sure how you could use it with lilies that are already growing. Just use a tablespoon mixed in with kitty litter in bottom of pots.

I usually use Osamacote. This year I had a bunch of pond tabs from when I was trying lotus, so used them. Not sure if it's related, but they're growing very slowly this year.
