What Customers Say

Why Cosmos Needs Specialized Nutrients

Cosmos plants require phosphorus for strong root development and potassium to enhance flower production and disease resistance. Additionally, a balanced supply of nitrogen supports their lush foliage growth and overall plant health.


Water cosmos plants moderately, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot.


To promote abundant flowering, plant cosmos in a location that receives full sun for at least six hours a day.


Use well-draining soil with average fertility, as cosmos thrive in less rich soils and too much fertility can reduce blooming.

Additional Tips
