STEM HEIGHT 

46-61 cm 


PLANTING DENSITY

40 Plants /m2 net (3-4 plant /ft2).


PRE-PLANTING

Soil: Well drained, loose soil with no clusters, at least 25 cm (10 in.) deep.

pH: 5.5 to 6.5

Netting: 2  to 3 levels


PINCH

Pinch 4 weeks after planting in order to stimulate the basal sprouting of the plant. Pinch to the second pair of true leaves.


SHOOTING SELECTION

2-3 weeks after pinch, leave the 3 best stems of the plant.


IRRIGATION

At planting or after 7 days, use drip irrigation applying a volume  of 4-5 l/m2/day. If soil gets dry, use overhead irrigation during first 3 week to complement according to the environmental and organoleptic conditions. The soil should never reach saturation or become completely dry.


FERTILIZATION

Begin fertilization one week after transplanting until harvest.

.

A general fertilization formula can be:

N: 120 ppm

P: 50 ppm

K: 150 ppm

Ca: 120 ppm

Mg: 50 ppm

S: 50 ppm

Fe: 2 ppm

Mn: 2.5 ppm

Cu, Zn y B: 0.2 ppm.

.

The adjustment of the fertilization formula must be done according to the soil analysis of the planting site.


HARVEST

Harvest at 50% to 60%  of flower opening.

Stems can be harvested before buds show color and be commercialized as “Green Amazon”.


POST HARVEST TREATMENT

Measure the pH of the hydration solution before applying any of the Postharvest products. Use citric acid to bring the pH to 4.0

Place the flowers immediately after cutting in STS (Floríssima 125 at 6 cc/lt dosis) for at least 2 hours.  It is not necessary to store in a cold room but it needs to be at a fresh temperature (15 C) protected from the sun and wind.  Following, hydrate in Chryal Professional 2 (6cc/lt) for 12 hours in a cold room.
