POINSETTIA

Snowy White

As one of our brightest white poinsettias, Snowy White is excellent 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.

Finishing Recommendations
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.

CULTURE THAT WORKS

propagation

•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
