Blooms are easily dried for ornamental arrangements and should be harvested before they begin to drop seeds. Plants thrive in hot, dry conditions and will produce a plethora of blooms, all season long.

How to Grow:

Sowing:Transplant (recommended) - Sow into 72-cell flats or preferred seedling container, 6-8 weeks before last frost. Light is required for germination; cover very lightly to hold seeds in place. Grow seedlings at 63-68°F (17-20°C). Harden off and transplant out after last frost.Direct seed - Only in locations with a long growing season. Sow 1/8" deep, after last frost. Pinching is recommended to encourage branching. Low temperatures and less than 12 hours of light can cause premature flowering.

 

How  to harvest: 

Celosia is exceptional as a cut flower and can be used both fresh and dried.

Fresh - Harvest when the flowers are fully developed, and stems are firm at the base of the bloom.

Dried - Harvest at the same stage of growth as you would for fresh flowers. Remove all the foliage and hang in a dark, well-ventilated location to dry.

 

Vase Life: 

7-14 days. Ideal storage temperature 36-41°F
