WATER!!! Mums need water every day, but it is always good to double check the soil and weight of the pot. Always water the roots not the foliage.

Mums can survive in either sun or shade (outside only). If you want the blooms to open faster, you can put them in full sun. On the flip side, you can start them in the sun and then move them to the shade for longer lasting blooms.

Mums are technically perennials, so if you so desire as to have some spring blooming mums, trim them back and keep them watered for an encore in next year!
