Spring through Summer Finish. Standard PPP.
One to two pinches can be used to increase branching and for shaping. For small pot sizes this may not be necessary, larger pots will probably require pinching. Florel can increase branching and reduce flowering. Cycocel/B-Nine tank mix or Sumagic spray at 3-5 ppm will help control growth if needed. Growing on the dry-side . will help control growth resulting in fewer applications of PGR.s.
Diseases are uncommon if good growing practices are used. Good sanitation practices include keeping greenhouses clean at all times, eliminating weeds and debris, disinfecting equipment in greenhouses as often as possible and keeping hose ends off of the greenhouse floor. Good water management practices are critical for good, healthy plant growth.
-Establish in a warm environment, plants subject to chilling may be stunted. -Proper water management is needed. Do not allow severe dry-down or overly wet soils. However, growing on the dry side will help control growth resulting in lower PGR use.
