Using Seeds: First, you need to buy seeds from an online or plant shop. Now you have to take soil and sand. For the soil, you have to take 40% and for sand, you have to take 30% and mix it well. After that, you need fertilizer; you can use cow dung manure 30 % or rice husk 10% and mix it well with soil and sand. You have to put this soil in the pot and pour at least 40% into a flower pot.
Now you have to add water to it and leave it for 15 minutes. After that, you have to add the dahlias seeds; remember that the seeds should not come over the seeds. Now you pour 1-inch soil into the pot and then add some water. After all, keep this flower pot in the sun for at least 6 hours. After 5 to 6 days, this seed starts growing and appears tiny small.
Remember while plantation: Before planting keeps a small stone beneath this flower pot and the flower pot size should be initially 8*10 inches.

Remember that this branch has to be built in a big flower pot; then, the soil made is put in the pot. After that, pour soil into a pot until the flower pot is half, then plant the dahlia branch in the pot.
Remember that this branch should be inside the soil for 2 inches and then add water.
Then keep this plant in the sunlight for at least 6 hours. After 4 to 5 days, this branch starts growing and appears as a small new leaf.
