How To Grow Marigolds From SeedsThe transplantation method is best for the rapid growth of marigolds. However, you can sow the seeds directly. The ideal soil temperature for sowing marigold seeds is 15-26°C. The best pot or grow bag size for planting marigolds is 12 to 15 inches wide and deep.

Water the soil after planting gently through a watering can and keep the pot in a sunny spot however, it can germinate in a dark place. It takes a few days (4-10 days) to germinate.

Marigold Plants Care TipsSoil - Use fertile and well-drained soil for planting marigolds. It does not perform well in very acidic, clay or soil rich in excess organic matter.
Water - Marigolds need daily watering in the initial days but once established weekly watering is sufficient, but you should check if the soil is dry and water them if it is dry.
Sunlight - Most marigolds love full sunlight but can tolerate some shade. They prefer afternoon shade during summer.

Common pests and diseases - Insects such as snails, slugs, aphids, and spider mites inhibit the growth of marigolds. And some diseases such as root rot, and gray mold infect marigolds.

Pruning/Deadhead - Pruning is very important to keep the marigold plants neat and well-shaped or to encourage healthy and new blooms. You can cut off visible spent or discolored or dried flowers on the plant using a pruning tool. If any unhealthy or brown stems appear on the marigolds plant, cut them off carefully.
Mulching - 1-2 layers of mulch are very helpful for marigold plants to retain moisture in the soil and discourage weeds.
