Cineraria Silver Dust Growing Season In India 

Silver dust cineraria grow best in hot and sunny weather. You can sow silver dust seeds in Spring (February-March) when the climates are warm. 

How To Grow Silver Dust In Pots

The seedling transplant method is mostly recommended for planting silver dust cineraria. Do not plant silver dust in a dark spot, otherwise, the seeds will not germinate well. The optimum germination temperature for silver dust seeds is 18-21°C. To plant cineraria in containers, you'll need a pot or grow bag 9-15 inches wide and at least 9 inches deep.

Cineraria Maritima Silver Dust Seeds Sowing Method 

Take a seedling tray and fill it with a potting mix, you can also make your potting mix by mixing 20% cocopeat, 30% vermicompost, 30% normal soil, and 20% sand/perlite. Sprinkle the silver dust seeds on the soil and cover the seeds with a thin layer, then press the soil with your hand. Place the seedling tray in a sunny spot or in partial shade. Water the soil gently through a small watering can and keep them moist until germination; Cineraria silver dust seeds can germinate in about 7-10 days.
After seed germination when silver dust seedlings have a few true leaves, you can transplant them into pots/grow bags. Plant only 1 or 2 silver seedlings in each 9-12 inches pot or maintain 8 inches distance between plants. Keep the soil moist and place the pot in partial sunlight for a few days after transplanting to protect the seedling from transplant shock. After 3 days, keep the pot in full sunlight.

Silver dust is a light feeder plant and requires fertilizer when planted in poor soil. You can add organic matter such as manure or leaf mold to improve poor soil.
