Snowy White

As one of our brightest white poinsettias, Snowy White is perfect for painting. Strong, easy-to-grow variety features large, showy bracts. Plus, the V-shaped, well-branched habit means less breakage — for superior sleeveability and shippability.

Plant Vigor: Low-Medium
V-Shaped Habit: Normal
Response Time in Weeks:
  • Season:Early Season
  • Foliage:dark green
  • Natural Flower (first pollen):Nov. 15-22
  • Response Time in weeks (first pollen):7.5
  • Vigor:medium-low
  • Habit:normal
  • Average Bract Size:large, round
  • Post Harvest:very good
  • Energy Efficient:
  • Varieties are rated from most () to least () efficient. Contact us for guides.

  • Cool Finish (24 hrs avg.):65°F / 18°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.

  • Space Efficient:
  • Varieties are rated from most () to least () efficient. Contact us for guides.

  • Recommended spacing for 6":13"x13"
  • 2.5" Mini
  • 4 - 5"
  • 6"
  • 8"

  • Roots rapidly; plant from a liner at 22-24 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.
  • Lower vigor level; 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 12-14 from a liner; at day 22-24 for direct-stick.
  • Failure to pinch early will result in uneven branching; pinch leaving only as many leaves as you need branches.
  • Plant produces a branch at every node.
  • Apply light PGR when branches are 1-1.5 in. (2.5-4 cm) using Cycocel spray at 500 ppm or 750 ppm.

growing on

  • Grows rapidly 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.B-Nine (1,000 ppm)/Cycocel (500 ppm) can be used, limited to 1-2 appliations, the last being done prior to September 20
  • Avoid late applications of PGR as they can affect the whiteness and size of the bract.

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.
  • Can be held cool but will reduce whiteness; pay attention to the humidity and avoide dew point to prevent Botrytis.
