Start indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost. Transplant 12 inches apart when seedlings have 2-3 sets of true leaves and the threat of frost has passed. Celosia tolerates fair conditions, dry periods and heat. Cut flowers when bright, before the base begins to dry and seeds mature. Cutting the flowers encourages the production of more flowers. Makes an excellent, long lasting cut flower.
