Lemon Glow

Lemon Glow is a low-vigor, bracted poinsettia. With timing of 7.5 weeks, this vivid yellow poinsettia is ideal for Week 46-48 novelty and decorator programs. At retail, Lemon Glow’s sunny yellow color brightens the shorter Fall days while transitioning from Fall decorating in November to Christmas décor in December.

  • 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.

  • Plant from liner at 22-24 days.
  • Apply rooting hormone at the base of cutting.
  • Start feed program at day 7 to prevent yellowing.
  • May not require PGR application in propagation.
  • Plant into finished container when well-rooted.

early finished growth

  • Pinch early: at day 14-16 from a liner; at day 24-26 for direct stick.
  • Apply light PGR when branches are 1-1.5 in. (2.5-4 cm) using Cycocel spray at 500 ppm.

growing on

  • Grows steadily once the branches develop and exhibits consistent slow growth throughout the crop until color begins.
  • Northern Climate: Apply Cycocel spray at 500 ppm.
  • Southern Climate: Can use Cycocel spray up to 750 ppm; B-Nine/Cycocel tank mixes should not be used.
  • Use caution, as plants are very responsive to PGR.

late growing stages

  • Requires continuous feed until finish.
  • Reduce feed levels if media EC increases too rapidly.
  • High EC at finish can result in root damage, reduced shelf life and possible Pythium.
