The cockscomb flower requires a sheltered spot in full sun to do best. They like well-drained soil that has some compost and fertilizer dug in. Celosia produce numerous small seeds and keep sprouting.  They can be directly seeded or planted in potting trays to be transplanted later.

Keep the celosia flower’s soil moist, but not wet. After planting, water generously for 1-2 weeks so the plants get well established. Fertilize the celosia flower once a month.
