Information

A great Gypsophila for producers, consumers and the planet. This new generation of Gypsophila was bred with sustainability in mind. Gypsophila Mirabela does not require additional lighting to flower resulting in a reduction of energy usage. Very strong after pruning.

It is more resistant to Leaf Miner resulting in the need for fewer pesticides.
Gypsophila Mirabela requires no Methyl Bromide. It has an upright plant structure with long internodes to prevent flower tangling which results in less flower loss in packing. Let's make a difference!

  • Crop Time

    From planting: 20 weeks to harvest
    From pruning: 18 weeks.

  • Planting Density

    6 plants / m2

  • Pre-planting

    Soil: adjusted for growing conditions.
    pH: 6.0 to 6.5.
    Netting: Low net: 10 to 20 cm(1 foot from soil).
    High Net: 20 to 30 cm(2 feet from).

  • Pinch

    Do the pinch when plants are 15 cm high (6 in). Four days after pinch apply GA3 at 250 ppm. A second GA3 focal application can be done selectively 8 days after the first application for plants with delayed growth.

  • Additional Light

    Gypsophila is a long day plant response. Flowering is induced under 13 to 14 hours of light, but the photoperiod is related to temperature. The minimum temperature at day should be of 59°F and the minimum at night should be 50°F.

  • Prunning

    Low approx. 2 to 3 cm (1 to 2 in). To prevent diseases it must be taller if no drip system is used (at 5 cm). It is advised to seal with fungicides to protect from diseases.
    Shoot selection after pruning: 5 weeks after pruning shoot selection must be completed leaving 12 to 15 uniform shoots. After selection apply GA3 at 250 ppm.

  • Irrigation

    Use overhead irrigation for the first week after planting. Keep the soil at field capacity.
    Reduce irrigation at 50% when the floral bud appears.
    One week before harvesting reduce irrigation at 30% and one week before pruning discontinue irrigation, restarting one week after pruning at 30% and increases it gradually to 100% as leaves appears.

  • Fertilization

    The fertilization formula depends on the soil fertility. A general fertilization formula is:
    N-P-K: 100-50-150 ppm
    Ca-Mg: 120-50 ppm

  • Harvest

    Harvest when 1 or 2 flowers are open. After harvest, flowers are placed in the opening chamber for 5 to 7 days at temperature of 76° F to 81°F and high relative humidity (90%).

  • PostHarvest treatment

    Minimum 12 hours with STS. After STS treatment, use a sugar solution (5gr/liter) and put into opening chamber.
    Store at 33°F to 36°F and high relative humidity (90%) to avoid dehydration.

  • Pests & Diseases

    Leaf miner
    Thrips
    Powdery mildewTM

  • Notes

    Mirabella does not need additional light to flower but some may be applied to concentrate the harvest season.
