  • 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.

CULTURE THAT WORKS

propagation

•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
•Will branch very early based on leaf maturity, not just pinch
•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
• Plant produces a branch at every node
• Apply light PGR when branches are 1-1.5 in. (2.5-4 cm)
• Apply Cycocel spray at 500 ppm to even out branches

growing on

• Grows steadily once the branches develop and exhibits consistent moderate growth throughout the crop until color begins
• Northern Climate: Apply Cycocel spray at 500 ppm
• Southern Climate: Can use Cycocel spray up to 1,000 ppm
Use 1-2 applications of B-Nine (1,000 ppm)/Cycocel (500 ppm) before September 20
• Apply later Cycocel sprays at 500-750 ppm
• 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
• High EC at finish can result in root damage, reduced shelf life and possible Pythium
