As needed
  • water dropWater

    'Mums', including the Chrysanthemum 'Bronze Enbee Wedding', require even moisture and should not be allowed to dry out completely. They should be watered deeply whenever the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. During active growth and blooming periods, in the absence of rainfall, this may mean watering once every 2 to 3 days, depending on climate conditions. Provide about 1 gallon of water per plant for each watering session to ensure the moisture reaches the root zone. Be cautious not to overwater as this can lead to root rot.

  • sunLight

    Mums thrive in bright, indirect sunlight and should be placed in a location where they receive at least 6 hours of sunlight per day. An east-facing or west-facing garden spot is often ideal, providing a good balance of morning or afternoon sun with some partial shade during the hottest part of the day. Avoid deep shade areas, as insufficient light can result in poor blooming and weak growth.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Mums prefer a temperature range of 70°F to 75°F during the day and 60°F to 65°F at night. They can withstand a brief dip down to 32°F, but frost can damage the plant. They can tolerate a maximum outdoor temperature of about 100°F, but it's important to provide some afternoon shade and additional water in higher temperatures to prevent stress on the plant.

  • scissorsPruning

    Prune mums during the spring to encourage bushy growth and more blooms. Cut back the previous year's stems to about 1 to 2 inches above the ground when new growth begins. Pinch back the tips of new growth in late spring and early summer to promote branching. The best time for pruning is after the last chance of frost has passed in the spring.

    As needed

  • bambooSoil

    The ideal soil mix for Chrysanthemums, also known as mums, should be well-draining and fertile, with a pH range of 6.0 to 7.0. A mix of two parts garden soil, one part peat moss or compost, and one part perlite or vermiculite would provide good aeration and nutrient retention.

  • plantRepotting

    Mums should be repotted every one to two years to rejuvenate the soil and allow room for growth. This is best done in the spring after the last frost when the plant starts actively growing.

  • water dropsHumidity & Misting

    Mums thrive in moderate humidity levels, around 40-60%. They should not be placed in extremely dry environments as this could impair their growth and flowering potential.

  • circleLife cycle

    The Chrysanthemum 'Bronze Enbee Wedding', commonly known as mums, starts life as a seed or a cutting, which when planted in well-draining soil and provided with adequate water, light, and warmth, will germinate or root to establish itself. As it grows, it enters the vegetative stage, during which leaves and stems develop rapidly in preparation for flowering. During the flowering stage, typically in late summer or fall, the plant produces distinctive bronze-colored flowers that attract pollinators and are popular in the ornamental trade. After blooming, the plant sets seeds, which if not deadheaded, can be dispersed to create new plants, although cultivars like this one might not breed true from seed. As the cold season approaches, the plant enters a period of dormancy, especially in regions with cold winters, during which above-ground growth dies back, and the plant conserves energy in its root system. With the return of favorable conditions in spring, the Chrysanthemum 'Bronze Enbee Wedding' resumes growth, and the cycle begins anew.

      Spring to Summer

    • The Chrysanthemum 'Bronze Enbee Wedding', commonly known as mum, is typically propagated through stem cuttings. This popular method involves taking a 4 to 6-inch (about 10 to 15 cm) cutting from a healthy, established plant's stem. Ideally, this should be done in the late spring or early summer when the plant is in active growth. The lower leaves are removed, and the base of the cutting is dipped in a rooting hormone powder or solution to enhance root development. The prepared stem is then inserted into a pot filled with moistened potting mix or a soilless medium. The container should be kept in a well-lit area, out of direct sunlight, ensuring that the medium remains consistently moist but not waterlogged. Roots generally begin to establish within a few weeks, after which the new chrysanthemum plant can be transplanted to its desired location.
