The daisy plant can be propagated by seed. The seeds need light to germinate, so it is essential to sow them in a ground area that receives adequate sunlight.
About two weeks after the sowing of the seeds, germination should occur. You will see the green shoots popping up above the ground surface. It would help if you transplanted the young sprouts into larger pots with space for growth and root development, which may occur two months after transplanting them from the seedbed site.
It is recommended that the younger plants be transplanted one foot away from the daisy plants during the growing season. The plant will adapt to its new environment while providing fertilizer and water.
