How to grow mums

The semi-temperate climate of Benguet favors the production of high value crops such as cutflowers.  The lucrative income derived from cutflower accounts for its growing popularity as a livelihood enterprise.  It is one of the fastest earning cash crops, next to vegetables.  Chrysanthemums grow best in temperatures ranging from 16 to 26 degree celsius.  If the temperature dips to 14 degree celsius and below, plants will take longer time to bloom.  On the other hand, if temperature  goes up to higher than 26 degree celsius, plants will bloom early but wilt easily due to the heat.
