Pinching is not needed. PGRs are generally not necessary, but Sumagic is effective if needed. Florel should not be used because it causes yellowing of the foliage.
Watch for aphids and white flies. 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.
Grower Tips: 
-Grow on the dry side to help naturally control growth. -When holding at cool temperatures, be sure to maintain temperatures no lower than 50 F to avoid leaf drop. Some red coloration on leaf margins may appear with cool temperatures. -In addition to cool temperatiures, red leaf margins can indicate over fertilization or extremely high light.
