Pinch at 1-2 weeks after transplant if needed. Do not use irrigation frequency to control plant size: Drying out plant to wilt will cause leaf burn and leaf drop. B-Nine may be used at 1,500-2,500 ppm 2 weeks after transplant. Bonzi is also effective. Growth Regulator Disclaimer: Check manufacturer's label for approved rates and usage recommendations.
