Grower Information

  • Take care not to plant too deeply
  • Best in 1-gal containers
  • Moist, well-drained soil with a 6-6.5 pH
  • Pinch plants prior to or shortly after planting
  • Follow an average watering regime
  • PGR rates to achieve sufficient control are higher on Phlox; begin applications early in the crop cycle

Pot by mid-spring to make sure plants are well-rooted before summer. Grow with a medium EC to minimize rapid growth and long internodes. Cut plants back to promote lateral branching or use PGRs to control height.
