Egyptian cotton plant is different from other cotton plants because it has longer and finer fibers. That means it can make smoother and stronger fabrics. Egyptian cotton plant also needs more water and sun than other cotton plants. That is why it grows well in warm and dry places like Egypt.

Do you want to grow your own Egyptian cotton plant? It is not very hard, but you need to be patient and careful. Here are some steps you can follow after receiving our seeds.

Preparing the Soil
Fill a pot with good soil. The soil should be loose, rich, and well-drained. You can mix some compost or fertilizer to make it better.

Planting the Seeds
Plant the seeds about 1 inch deep in the soil. You can plant one or two seeds in each pot. Cover them lightly with soil and water them gently.

Choosing a Location
Place the pots in a sunny and warm spot. You can put them near a window or outside if the weather is good. The temperature should be between 70 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

Water the pots regularly
The soil should be moist but not soggy. You can check it by touching it with your finger.

Wait for the seeds to sprout.
This may take two to four weeks. You will see some green shoots coming out of the soil.

Transplant the seedlings to bigger pots or to the ground when they have four or five leaves. Be careful not to damage their roots when you move them.

Keep watering and caring for your plants until they grow big and strong. They may need some support like stakes or cages to hold their branches.
Watch for the flowers and bolls to appear. The flowers are usually white or yellow and have five petals. They open in the morning and close in the evening. The bolls are green at first and turn brown when they are ripe.

Harvest the bolls when they split open and show the fluffy cotton inside. You can use scissors or your hands to pick them gently.
Enjoy your Egyptian cotton! You can use it for crafts, decorations, or gifts.
