I have lost many marigold plants before, due to lack of knowledge on growth about these plants.So many colours are available with oranges, reds, yellows and also some plants having flowers of the shading colours of yellow and orange or red , I had taken and planted many times with no success.
Every time I lost them due to the pigeons or the rats God knows who were after these plants. Many times I have seen rats love to nibble on these and even in one night the whole plant will get nibbled along with its flowers.So beware if you have rats nearby, we have had clear times now and I hope the rats do not come back!thanks for once for the new constructions of towers!

Tips- Most important tips are to pay attention to the watering! After losing so many plants I have understood that the most important tip for success in growing marigold is to water regularly till the plant roots itself. This jhendu plant requires well draining soil and will die in water clogged soil. Does not tolerate direct sunlight and prefers to grow under big trees. Pest like the white aphids can attack this plant so beware and take care.
