  • Crop Time

    Start production 18 weeks after planting.

  • Planting Density

    3 plants/sq-m net.

  • Pre-planting

    Soil: Well drained soil, loose soil with no clusters, at least 25 cm (10 in) deep.
    PH: 5.8 to 6.3.
    Netting: 3 Levels

  • Planting

    Plant formation: It is very important to allow the plant to establish at first. Pinch should be done when plants reach the first net by removind the tip of all stems to stimulate the plants to produce new sprouts. A second pinch should be done when the stems are reaching the second net level. After doing this allow the new stems to grow free until harvest.

  • Pinch

    Not recommended.

  • Irrigation

    Begin drip irrigation at the moment of the transplant. For the first three weeks keep the moisture of the soil over field capacity to avoid dehidration of the plants.Once the root system of the plants is established keep the moisture of the soil at field capacity according to weather conditions. Keep moisture but do not overwater.

  • Fertilization

    Begin fertilization 1 week after planting. The fertilization formula can vary according to soil analisys. Avoid high salt levels in the soil. A general fertilization formula could be
    Nitrogen: 120 ppm.
    Phosphorus: 50 ppm.
    Potassium: 150-250 ppm
    Calcium: 120 ppm
    Magnesium: 50 ppm.

  • Harvest

    Harvest when flower buds are just starting to open, when petals are beginning to get separated. For. harvesting, stems are pulled off firmly from the base of the plant to stimulate stem regrowth.

  • PostHarvest treatment

    Place stems immediately after harvesting in a STS solution for 2 hours. Continue with a bactericide solution for at least 12 hours before cooling. Use a floral preservative to increase vase life.

  • Pests & Diseases
