Marigold Doesn’t Look Right

prettyme79 added on November 23, 2014 | Answered

Why does my marigold have brown flower buds that look like it didn't grow? Is it normal? Or too much temperature? I put my marigold in a pot outside my house with direct sunlight.

You have a number of nice flowers, so I guess you're concerned that some of the buds don't seem to be opening? Sometimes plants don't open a bud(s) if they feel that there's some reason they may not be able to bring them to maturity, IOW to produce seeds. You might try keeping the soil a bit more moist.
