POINSETTIA

Pink Champagne

Right in line with Christmas Cheer and Christmas Wish, Pink Champagne features a unique rose-on-pink bicolor bract. This variety has long-lasting cyathia for extended life on the bench and on the shelf. Its break-resistant, V-shaped habit means it ships and shows strong, and a high-quality root system offers higher yield and lower shrink.

  • Cool Finish (24 hrs avg.):63°F / 17° C
  • Indicates minimum temperature starting two weeks after the beginning of short days. Please note that a crop grown cooler requires more time to finish (4 to 7 days), and will have smaller bracts and darker color (for example, white may turn cream-yellow). Toward the end of the crop (two weeks prior to shipping), slowly lower the temperature for green-leafed varieties to 65°F (18°C) day/night and dark green-leafed varieties to 63°F (17°C) day/night.

NOTES
“Pink Champagne is slower out of the pinch than many other Selecta One varieties, so be patient.”

CULTURE THAT WORKS

propagation

• Roots well; plant from a liner at 24 days
• Apply rooting hormone at the base of cutting
• Start feed program at day 7
• Feed aggressively; failure to feed early enough will result in yellowing and hardening

early finished growth

• Pinch early: at day 14-18 from a liner; at day 28 for direct-stick
• Breaks begin to grow 5-7 days after pinch
• In low-humidity climates, Florel applications before and/or after pinch may help hasten branching

growing on

• Grows steadily once the branches develop and exhibits consistent slow growth throughout the crop until color begins
• Apply light PGR when branches are 1-1.5 in. (2.5-4 cm) using Cycocel spray at 500-750 ppm
• Apply more aggressive PGR when branches are 2 in. (5 cm)
• Southern Climate: Use 1-2 applications of B-Nine (1,000 ppm)/
Cycocel (500 ppm) before September 20
• Apply later Cycocel sprays at 500-750 ppm, with last applications by October 10
• Micro Bonzi drenches can begin in early October

late growing stages

• Requires continuous feed until finish
• Reduce feed levels if media EC increases too rapidly
• Requires that the finished pH be maintained below 6.6 to prevent magnesium deficiency. This shows up in the form of interveinal chlorosis near the outer part of the leaves about 3/4 of the way up the plant, usually in late October. If this occurs, foliar applications of chelated magnesium can be applied.
