Cotton needs a soil rich with nutrients and compost. It also needs frost-free weather of 120 to 150 days. However, the cotton seeds can be started indoors in a greenhouse or home, and moved outdoors if you have a shorter summer. Cotton needs full sun so plant it or keep the pot in an area where it receives at least 8 hours of sunlight for best growth.

Cotton plants make great container plants. They need to be started early in spring and grown indoors especially if the temperatures are lower than 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Cotton is not frost-hardy; though a lot of the newer varieties are cold-tolerant.

Cotton plants do well with lots of nutrients for growth. Fertilize the plants with lots of compost or any balanced NPK fertilizer you would use for growing roses or tomatoes. Do not used peat-based compost as it tends to hold a lot of water which cotton plants dont like.
