Chrysanthemum is a wonderful flowering plant that you can grow outside as well as inside your home. People started growing this flower back in 15th Century B.C.
In temperate climate you can grow them during early spring season, while in hot tropical climate grow them during fall to early winter season.
Prepare potting mix with 3 part soil + 2 part compost + 1/4th part Neem cake fertilizer + one spoon bone-meal.
Mums can perform well under bright direct to indirect sunlight. However avoid low light conditions.
Be careful while watering mums. Apply little amount of water only when soil becomes completely dry.
Mix organic compost and stone dust, and add one to two handful of this mixture once after every 14 days. Before flowering add banana peel fertilizer.
Pinching is important for making plant dense and getting heavy flowering. Leave 4 to 5 nodes in each branch and pinch out the rest part.
You can use pinched out branches for propagating mums from cuttings. Plant them in sandy loam soil and wait for 25 days.
