Now, some are growing the chrysanthemum plantations on a trial basis and their farmlands have met with success, said Daw Chit Su, a commercial grower of chrysanthemum plants.
The most important thing in growing flowers is to water them a lot. For the growth of plants, the plants need to be sprayed with fertilizer. At present, the weather is so hot that the flowers can be damaged within a short period. So, the growers need to water once in the morning and once in the evening.
