Tithonia is a perennial, annual, shrub native to Mexico and parts of Central America. The plants belong to the daisy family (Asteraceae).

How to Care

  • Tithonia should be spaced 2 feet apart to prevent overcrowding and to prevent disease transmissions. The plant requires proper air circulation. Overcrowding will promote the growth of fungus, bacteria and mold. 
  • The seeds can be grown directly in the soil during march/ April when the soil is adequately warm. Tithonia is from a tropical region and doesn't prefer cold soil. 
  • The soil should be kept evenly moist and the seeds should be lightly covered with soil. Tithonia requires enough sunlight to germinate. Germination occurs between 1-2 weeks.
  • The plants tend to grow long so it is advisable to grow them in a larger pot like the one we have. If you are looking to cover a space in your home or garden or have a private spot in the garden, it is best to plant larger plants like tithonia to render that private cover. 
  • Tithonia is a sun-loving plant and requires full sun for a minimum of 6 to 8 hours per day. 
  • The plant requires loose, aerated, well-drained soil. Tithonia can tolerate mild drought and does not require lots of water. Water up to one inch deep. 
  • Tithonia can adapt to adverse soil conditions and does not require fertilizers to grow.
