Try for a seed spacing of at approx. 11.7 inches (30.0 cm) and sow at a depth of around 0.25 inches (0.64 cm) if planning to sow direct.

Common zinnia 'Red Spider' normally grows to a mature height of 40.0 cm (that's 1.30 feet imperial) so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.

Your garden is in fluorescent light: Common zinnia 'Red Spider' likes a position of full sun.

Remember to water moderately.

Common zinnia 'Red Spider' requires a soil ph of 5.5 - 7.0 meaning it does best in acidic to neutral soil.
