Marigolds are susceptible to damping off (Rhizoctonia solani) and pests like collar rat, Sclerotium rolfsii, Botrytis cinerea, Powdery mildew and cucumber mosaic. The major symptom for these pests is light brown spots on the lower leaves or on early seedlings. To prevent these diseases, ensure proper drainage and ventilation and avoid over watering.
Sandy loamy soil with pH 5.6 to 6.5 is ideal for its cultivation.
Place in a spot that receives either full sun or partial sunlight.
Regular watering keeps the flowers healthy. You can use a water can or a water spray.
