  • 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.

“In all my years working with poinsettias, I have never seen a real orange poinsettia like this one. Early timing and large bract make this a game changer.”



  • Roots rapidly; plant from a liner at 22-24 days.
  • Apply rooting hormone at the base of the cutting.
  • Uses feed aggressively; start feed program around day 7; failure to feed early enough will result in yellowing.
  • Plant into finished container when well-rooted.

early finished growth

  • Strong-branched variety; pinch early: at day 14-16 from a liner; at day 24-26 for direct-stick; failure to pinch early can result in uneven branching.
  • Apply light PGR when branches are 1-1.5 in. (2.5-4 cm) using Cycocel spray at 750 ppm; recommended to even out the branches.
  • Prevention strategies for Pythium and Rhizoctonia are recommended shortly after planting into finished containers.

growing on

  • Grows steadily once the branches develop and exhibits strong growth through mid-October, then slows down somewhat as finish approaches.
  • Northern Climate: PGR limited to Cycocel spray at 750-1,000 ppm
  • Southern Climate: Can use Cycocel spray up to 1,200 ppm; use 1-2 spray applications of B-Nine (1,000 ppm)/Cycocel (750 ppm) before September 20.
  • Later PGR applications: Cycocel spray 500-750 ppm, end October 10.
  • Micro Bonzi drenches can begin in early October.

late growing stages

  • Requires continuous feed until finish; watch media EC and reduce feed levels to avoid rapid increase in media EC, this indicates plants' need for nutrition is waning.
  • High EC at finish can result in root damage, reduced shelf life and possible Pythium.
  • Can be held cool; avoid dew point to prevent Botrytis.
