Growing Water Lotus From Seeds

Should lotus (not lily) seeds be left in water with liquid ferts? Watched quite a few videos/read online and supposedly you need to cut/sand the seed until the white part inside is exposed and it needs to be left in water for a few days. But there wasn’t much detail on the water. Wouldn’t ferts help? Also can lotus survive temperatures around 45-50 degrees Fahrenheit? Still getting quite cold at night here in Texas.

They don't need the extra ferts. The seeds contain all the nutrients the plants need to sprout. They can survive those temps but you won't get the best start with seeds outside in 45 F. You could start them indoor and transfer them outside when temps get a bit warmer.

Ah. Thanks for the advice!
