My precious Zinnia...!

Today I bought from the market, this small pot with Zinnia! Once I saw this bright orange colour, I fell in love with it immediately! When I got home, I looked for more infos about this plant in the flower expert, and decided to write a few words!
Well, Zinnia elegans (that's my baby!!), originated in Mexico, is the most popular amongst the others Zinnias' species. It needs a hot climate to grow and full sun. 
A really impressing thing I discovered touching its leaves, was the sandpaper like in texture!!

Butterflies are particularly attracted to Zinias, so I hope to have some great visitors in my balcony soon..!

I'm not sure if I have to transplant my lovely Zinnia....
