When established, the plants can handle drought, poor soil conditions and general neglect. They even self-sow, this is truly a low maintenance plant.

Most amazing fact about cosmos is one need not to water cosmos until there is a prolonged drought. They thrive under any humidity level. They typically germinate in 7-21 day at 75 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by flowering in about 50-60 days


Let’s adopt some environment friendly methods of growing cosmos. Growing cosmos in a pot is very easy.

  1. Choose a pot at least 12 inches in diameter with several drainage holes in the bottom. Heavy pots are stable which can help prevent the plant from toppling.
  2. don’t use light weight plastic pots, If taken then place a layer of gravel in the bottom of the pot to add weight before filling it with potting mix.
  3. Scatter the seeds thinly over the surface of the potting soil and cover them with one-third to one-half inch of additional soil.
  4. When the seedlings are 4 inches tall, thin the plants by clipping out the unwanted seedlings with scissors.
  5. When your seedlings are off to a good start, set the pot in a good sunny location. Water container-grown cosmos when the soil is dry to a depth of two inches. Drench the soil and then allow the excess water to drain through. After about 20 minutes, empty the saucer under the pot. Pots that sit in sunny locations dry out quickly, so check the soil moisture daily.

. When growing cosmos in pots, a light feeding with slow-release fertilizer lasts through the entire season.
