HOW TO GROW RED COSMOS FLOWER FROM SEEDS
Seedling trays or small pots should be filled with compost, seeds of good quality, or sieved seeds. Firm down the compost lightly by using a wood block or your hand. The seeds can be sown directly on the compost surface, one seed per cell if possible. Place a small pinch of seeds in each cell, cover with a centimeter-thick layer of compost or vermiculite, moisten with water, drain, and label. Alternatively, it can be covered with a plastic bag or placed in a heated propagator. When seedlings have two pairs of leaves, transplant them into separate pots.
CARE FOR RED COSMOS AFTER GERMINATION
Cosmos doesn't require soil preparation. As a result, they prefer soil that isn't too rich because rich soil will promote foliage rather than blooms. It is also essential that the soil drains well. Cosmo flowers can tolerate both hot and dry weather. They can even endure drought. They will self-seed in your garden. Because of their tall stature, these plants may require staking in some cases. You can also grow them against a fence to provide support. Over-watering and over-fertilizing your cosmos may result in fewer flowers. Keep your cosmos moist, but don't overdo it.
