DAYS TO GERMINATION:3-5 days at 80-85°F (27-29°C)
SOWING:Transplant (recommended) – Sow into 72-cell flats, or preferred seedling container, 4 weeks before season grow. Cover seeds. A heat mat will help maintain an accurate temperature. Lower temperatures will result in slower germination: 5-7 days at 70-75°F (21-24°C). Harden off and transplant out. Do not allow plants to become root bound and avoid disturbing roots; transplant shock or other stress events may cause double-flowering varieties to produce single blooms for a period following stress. Direct seed – in season grow, sow 1/4″ deep. Succession-sow/plant every 2 weeks for prolonged yields of high-quality stems. Pinching of initial bud or bloom and subsequent deadheading is recommended to encourage strong branching and bloom production.
PLANT HEIGHT:Varies. No support is necessary.
HARVEST:Before completely open. Stem is firm from point of cut to just below the bloom.
SOIL REQUIREMENTS:Fertile soil rich in organic matter. pH: 6.3-6.8 preferred.
