Γκαζάνια Γλάστρα 9cm
Grow at 12-16 °C. Very cold temperatures will increase the cultivation time. Gazania does tolerate not frost.
Media: Use a well-drained, growing substrate with 15-30 % clay, 1-1,5 kg/m³ complete balanced fertilizer, 1,5 kg/m³ slow release fertilizer (3-6 months), iron-chelate, micronutrients, pH: 5.5-5.8.
Temperature: Grow at 12-16 °C. Very cold temperatures will increase the cultivation time. Gazania does tolerate not frost.
Fertilization: High fertilization levels are required. Fertilize the crop weekly with 150-200 ppm nitrogen (at 1,5 kg/m³ slow release fertilizer in substrate), using a complete balanced fertilizer. Avoid high ammonium and high nitrogen levels. Avoid pH above 6.0, as high pH causes iron deficiency. Apply chelated iron, if chlorosis becomes a problem. To prevent magnesium deficiency, apply magnesium sulphate (0,05 %) 1-2 times. Gazania does tolerate high salt levels in substrate.
Transplant Ready: 5 – 6 weeks from sow in a ‘288’ tray.
Finish Bulking/Flower Initiation: Optimum conditions during the vegetative period, beginning at transplant, needed for the root to reach the edge of the container AND to make the plant receptive to flower initiation.
- pH: 5.8 – 6.2
- EC: 1 – 1.5
Light: Provide full sun.
Temperature: After transplants are established, reduce night temperatures to 55° – 60°F (12° – 16°C), with moderate day temperatures.
Moisture: Alternate between moisture levels wet (4) and dry (1.5) Allow media to approach level (1.5) before re-saturating to level (4).
Humidity: 40 – 70%
Dehumidify: Provide horizontal airflow to aid in drying down the media through evapotranspiration, allowing better penetration of oxygen to the roots.
Fertilizers: 150 – 200 ppm nitrogen as needed with a fertilizer containing low amounts of ammonium and phosphorus.
Growth Regulators: Kiss has been bred for a naturally bushy compact habit.
Common Diseases: Botrytis, Rhizoctonia, Sclerotinia.
Common Pests: Thrips, Spider Mite, Aphids PRODUCT USE Large packs, pots, containers, border edgings, mass plantings GARDEN SPECIFIC.
