Cultivation / Plant breeding

Chrysanthemum indicum L.

Chrysanthemum sp. planted spring to winter so to develop their root system.

Chrysanthemums are easy to grow. Prefers sun or partial long and well drained soil. To bloom chrysanthemums need 11 hours of light and 13 hours of darkness in 24 hours. Chrysanthemums grown in that soil must have sufficient moisture. Both drought and excess water are bad plants.

In autumn is the perfect time to isolate it. After giving the first frost, chrysanthemum leaves die. Clean stems of leaves, then cut it a few inches of soil. It is good to leave a little bit of ground strain for it to grow next year again.
