Benefits of Mix Cosmos Cup Flower
Lacewings, parasitic wasps, tachinid flies, and hoverflies are among the insects that pollinate and consume pest insects. Cosmos bipinnatus, the most common species in the Cosmos family, should not be consumed. The plant is not harmful to children or pets, so they can be around it safely.
How to Sow and Care for Mix Cosmos Cup Flower
Cosmos seeds should be planted in cell packs or flats for four to six weeks before being transplanted into the garden. From 20° C to 25° C, seedlings emerge in seven to twenty days. After all frost hazards have passed, sow cosmos in rows, 4-6 seeds per foot, into prepared seedbeds. Seedlings should be spaced 12-15 inches apart. The best flowers grow in soils with moderate water content and average fertility.
Cosmos can withstand drought and heat. Removing spent blooms can encourage additional blooms. In most cases, Cosmos will self-sow if some spent blossoms remain on the plant. Cup Flower requires no soil preparation. So, they prefer not to grow in too rich soil because rich soil will promote foliage instead of blooms. A well-draining soil is also essential.
A hot, dry climate is best for growing Cosmos. Cosmos are drought-tolerant. They self-seed easily. In some cases, staking of tall plants may be necessary. Fences can also be used to support tall plants. When your cosmos are overwatered or overfertilized, they will produce fewer flowers. Be sure to water them regularly, but not excessively.
