GROWER TIPS • Echibeckia are fast growing plants; nishing times range from just 8-14 weeks, depending on season and size. • Echibeckia can be grown in a variety of sizes. Larger sizes should be planted earlier in the season while days are short so the plant can ll the pot . • Echibeckia require high levels of fertilizer for optimal performance. We recommend starting with 4 KG Osmocote per m³. Use a 5-6 month Osmocote with high Potassium (K).Add an extra amount of 200 gram Micromax trace element to the soil in addition to the normal starter mix.

• Echibeckia do not need to be vernalized. Save space and time by planting in the spring. • Echibeckia need to be spaced in time to set a lot of side owers. When part of the canopy is being shaded, it is time to space. More light amounts to more owers. however, if they are subjected to poor growing climates such as too much moisture or too low light. • Echibeckia have a long shelf life at retail.To prevent colors from fading, keep out of high shade areas. • Echibeckia are not prone to disease. Diseases might arise,
