Early Spring to Summer Finish. Standard PPP.
No Pinch necessary but plants can be pinched to shape. A very soft pinch or a shearing off of just the growth tips will encourage fuller growth. A hard pinch can stall growth. Diamond Frost and Diamond Delight are very sensitive to Florel. Florel will cause defoliation.
General pest and disease practices. 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.
-High light is required in production -Preventive fungicides are recommended at transplant -Warm and slightly dry conditions after transplanting speeds root in and growth -Diamond Frost and Diamond Delight can have an adverse reaction to shipping in a box. Even plants that look bad will rebound in a short time given appropriate conditions. Severe dry down can cause foliage to drop, however, the plant will recover. -Plants in the spurge family often will bleed a milky, white sap if cut or wounded. This sap is a form of latex. Most people will have little or no reaction due to sap exposure from the euphorbia that Proven Winners sells. However, people with sensitive skin or latex allergies should be cautious when handling euphorbia. Poinsettias are in this same family. If you have ever experienced a skin irritation due to contact with poinsettias you should be cautious with all euphorbia. -Diamond Delight is about 25% shorter than Diamond Frost. Diamond Delight forms a dense, flowering canopy which does not work as a filler in combination in the same way that Diamond Frost does. Diamond Delight can be great in combinations, but it will create a mass of flowers, rather than intermingling. Matching it with other vigor 2 rated plants is helpful for success in combinations. It makes a great Grande or Classic (4.5") finish pot. -Diamond Delight is the most vigorous double flowered Euhporbia hybrid on the market. It is extremely heat, humidity and drought tolerant, with extra petals to create more color impact.
