PLANT CARE ( Marigold | Tagetes )
|The minimum temperature for growing Marigold | Tagetes is 10°C. The optimum temperature for the germination of seeds is 19°C.|
|For the most flowers and the healthiest plants, plant your Marigold | Tagetes in full sun.|
|Maintain 90% of relative humidity.|
|When you first plant your Marigold | Tagetes seeds or plants, make sure they get regular water.|
Don’t crowd potted Marigold | Tagetes plants, as healthy marigolds require plenty of air circulation. One marigold is enough for a 6-inch (15 cm.) pot, but you can grow two or three in a 12-inch (30 cm.) pot, and five or more small plants in a large container with a diameter of 18 inches (45 cm.). However, be sure the container has a drainage hole in the bottom. Additionally, use a good quality, lightweight potting mix. A handful of sand, perlite, or vermiculite improves drainage. Place the pot where the Marigold | Tagetes is exposed to at least six hours of sunlight. Water the Marigold | Tagetes when the top 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm.) of soil is dry. Water deeply, then let the soil dry before watering again. However, never allow the soil to remain soggy, as wet conditions invite root rot and other moisture-related diseases. Pinch the tips of newly planted Marigold | Tagetes once or twice to encourage bushy plants. Deadhead the plants regularly to trigger new blooms. Apply a water-soluble fertilizer every month, but don’t over-fertilize. Too much fertilizer or overly rich soil can produce weak plants with few blooms.
