Carita ™ White 70003175 C-M E Tech Tips: Provide warm temperatures early on in finishing to allow plants to establish after transplant. Cold temperatures lead to bottom leaf yellowing, slow growth, and basal stem and root rots. Avoid over-watering the young transplants, especially in large patio containers. Apply a preventative fungicide drench if needed to prevent fungal root diseases. Scout and treat for Thrips.

Botrytis

Bonzi ® (5–10 ppm), Sumagic ® (4–5 ppm), and Cycocel ® (1000 ppm) + B-Nine ® (2500 ppm) tank-mix work to control growth. It is also becoming popular for growers to combine Florel ® at 350–500 ppm with B-Nine ® (2500) early on in production to control growth and improve branching. These Florel ® + B-Nine ® combo sprays should be applied to actively growing plants.

If grown cool, little chemical growth regulators are needed during production. Scout and treat for Thrips, which can cause streaking and browning of the flower petals.

C-M E Tech Tips: Calypso should be pinched during propagation, which results in a well-branched, mounded plug. Avoid keeping plants too wet and cold early on after transplant, which can result in root rot and tip chlorosis (iron deficiency), especially in large baskets and containers. High DLIs and cool finishing temperatures produce high-quality bacopa. Plants can be pinched twice for baskets and large containers, which results in full, uniform plants. Monitor media pH and EC closely and avoid high EC levels to prevent damage roots. Do not let plants get extremely dry which results in necrotic foliage and root loss. Calypso has moderate vigor and will generally need a PGR treatment in propagation. To control growth after rooting, a spray of B-Nine ® WSG (1,500 ppm) is sufficient. It is also becoming popular for growers to combine Florel ® (200 ppm) with the B-Nine ® WSG (1,500 ppm) to increase growth control and to improve branching. These Florel ® + B-Nine ® WSG combo sprays should be applied to actively growing plants. Do not spray B-Nine ® WSG or Florel ® + B-Nine ® WSG tank mixes on stressed or weak cuttings. For all sprays listed above, the mist should be off for a minimum of one hour for the PGR to absorb into the leaf tissue.
