Growing Method of Antirrhinum Plant:

  • In India, seeds are sown during September-October. In low rainfall areas, sowing can be done as early as July.
  • Seeds are sown thinly in nursery beds/ seed pans/seedling trays.
  • Fine sandy soil is required for seedbed (Outdoors), or coco peat is used as sowing medium for seedling trays (Indoors).
  • If sowing is to be done in bulk quantity, the seeds can be mixed with a double amount of sand.
  • Before sowing the seeds, soil/coco peat should be made slightly moist.
  • Immediately after sowing the seeds, watering should be done carefully with a fine rose-can.
  • Seedlings are allowed to grow on seedbeds/trays kept in semi shade.
  • When seedlings are about 7-8 cm tall, they are transplanted in pots or flower beds.
  • Seedlings should be transplanted in high-quality rich soil or potting mixture.

  • Planting Distance: Planting in beds is done 30-40 cm apart. For pot culture, plants are grown in 25 cm pots.

    Feeding: Over-manuring may result in poor quality flowers. Fresh compost should be added to soil at the time of planting.

    Plant care: Seedlings are susceptible to ‘damping off’. Also, Rust is a serious disease in Antirrhinum, particularly in hot and dry climates. Spray fungicides to control the diseases.
