After buying it home, open the packaging. Be careful to unwind the intertwined flowers of Tagetes patula one by one first, and then cut the roots diagonally. Because it has many flowers and plants, it is extremely easy to lose moisture. Therefore, the deep-water awakening time should be about 3 hours. After awakening, arrange its leaves.

The suitable growth temperature is 15 - 30 degrees Celsius. When winter comes, it should be moved indoors for cold protection.

Then, there are no special requirements for the soil. Ordinary garden soil is fine. Keep the soil slightly moist on a daily basis.

Finally, apply compound fertilizer or phosphorus and potassium fertilizer once a month during the vigorous growth period of Tagetes patula.
