Spring to Summer Finish. Standard Plant Per Pot.
Pinching isn't necessary.
Adequate light and space while avoiding high ammonium and phosphorus fertilizers will help control growth. Do not over water.
Bonzi (3 to 15 ppm) applied as a spray 1 to 2 times can be used to control growth. Mature plants approaching salable size can be drenched with Bonzi (.25 to 3 ppm) to significantly slow growth while allowing plants to continue to flower.
Thrips, aphids, and fungus gnats can be problematic. Botrytis, Pythium and Rhizoctonia can also cause problems.
-Moderate drought stress will control growth and promote flowering. Drought stressed plants are more prone to leaf scorch under high light.
-Leach pots periodically to avoid salt build up.
