Propagation methods: seeds. Seeds mature at different time. Long vegetation plant. Depending on the variety blooms from 3.5 to 6 months after sowing. Seeds are sown in boxes in January and March. Seeds germinate within 8-14 days at 20-25°C. 350-400 seeds per 1 gram. 1000 seedlings per 8 - 10 grams of seeds sown. Seeds stay viable for 4-5 years. Seed yield is 3-5 g for a square meter. Cross-pollinated flower, isolation distance is 200-500 m Seedlings are pricked out in a good texture soil at 3 cm distances plant from plant. The flower is planted to the final growing place at 30 cm distance between rows after the last frosts, because seedlings are very sensitive to frost.
