Out of the Blue Trixi™
Trixi® 2.0 has been upgraded to customize the treatment of components so you can grow that perfect combo for retail.
Customized Treatment The secret to new Trixi 2.0 is that each component is first stuck and rooted separately in 209 trays so each gets customized treatment
before being put together. 100%
Complete & Balanced Color After custom pretreatments, liners are moved to a 50 or 72-count tray to finish rooting together, creating a 2.0 liner. You get the same TrixiLiner, but an even better finished product.
Endless Options Even more exciting, this technique opens the door to unique combos that wouldn’t normally propagate together, like Kiss on the Chic that brilliantly blends calibrachoa, bacopa and osteospermum.
TrixiLiner 2.0 Advantage Customized liner treatment for each component gives you a stronger start for a better finish, so you have 100% complete and balanced color combos that can’t be passed up at retail.

  • General Information

    • Height:
      17 - 19" (43 - 48cm)
      Spread:
      12 - 14" (30 - 36cm)
      Exposure:
      Sun
  • Rooting Guidelines

    • Recommended Cell Size (in millimeters):
      N / A
      Rooting Hormone (IBA + NAA mix):
      N / A
      Average Days with Mist:
      N / A
      Early PGR Treatment Recommended (after 7 - 10 days): (see note)
      N / A

      PGR applications during rooting:
      Sprays only. Cover the plants and avoid run-off as much as possible. For vigorous products, first application should be done about 7-10 days after sticking, second when needed. Please test before use.

      Average Propagation Weeks:
      N / A
      Pinch in Propagation:
      TrixiLiners ship pinched
      Comments:
      TrixiLiner is pinched, treated with PGR, and well-toned for best results.
  • Rooting & Finishing

    • Media pH: (see note)
      pH - 5.4-5.8

      Media pH:
      Best results are achieved if media with the correct pH is used starting with propagation.

      Fertilizer Needs: (see note)
      200-250 PPM N /EC 1.8-2.0

      Fertilizer needs:
      Start with low concentrations after roots show and increase with plant development to the recommended levels.

      Watering: (see note)
      keep constantly moist

      Watering:
      In general avoid drying out or overwatering the substrate as this will affect plant quality and finishing time. Root system will suffer when conditions change from one extreme to the other. “Growing on the dry side“ means letting the substrate become dry (substrate color turns light brown and substrate starts to separate from the pot edge) before watering.

      “Keep constantly moist“ means watering the plants just before substrate becomes dry. Water management in rooting and finishing is half the success and the best way to prevent root-bound diseases, improve performance and control plant quality.

  • Finishing Guidelines

    • Temperature Needs Day/Night: (see note)
      70-75°F / 55-60°F 21-24°C / 13-16°C

      Temperature needs day/night:
      During rooting keep soil temperature measured in the liner at 70°F/21°C until cuttings are well-rooted. After planting the liner, keep temperature up until roots have developed nicely. Afterward follow recommendations.

      The use of “Cool Morning“ treatments will improve plant quality, flower and foliage color, and plant habit, and harden the plants. Lower the temperature by 8-12°F/4-6°C 2 hours before sunrise until 2-3 hours after sunrise. Start treatments after plants are rooted in, well-branched and cover the media (reach the pot edges). To avoid delayed flowering, keep the average day temperature under a close watch and if necessary, increase night temperatures. Finishing of the crop depends on the average day temperature, and positive or negative DIF methods as well as “Cool Morning” can be used to improve plant quality.

      Pinch after Transplant (unpinched liners):
      A 2nd pinch is recommended
      Light Levels in Foot Candles:
      5,000 to 6,000
      Plant Growth Regulators (PGR) (S) = spray / (D) = drench:
      Depends on the Mix. B-Nine 2,500-3,500 PPM (S), Sumagic 5-20 PPM (S) /?Sumagic 0.25-0.50 PPM (D),Bonzi 2-4 PPM (D)
      Pests and Fungal Diseases:
      Depends on the Mix. See single crops for a list of possible problems.
      Comments:
      Cool temperatures and high light levels will improve plant quality. Pinch as needed for improved plant habit. Watch for Fe deficiency.
