Mirage is one of our best red varieties because the plant builds up harmoniously with a very good branching and strong roots. This variety has a great benefit because we can universally applicable it for a 6 cm mini till a 17 cm bush. Cramer Jungpflanzen

invest in this variety for the next few years as well, with ever-increasing numbers. The Mirage has many strengths: V-shaped bearing, very robust stem (even when grown in a 16 cm pot it does not need elastic), very easy to bag. It branches out very well, the color is a nice RED, very pleasant. It’s the exactly tight precocity for our Sicily, it does not defoliate even if cultivated at high density per sqm. The shelf life is excellent. And last but not least, the use of plant growth regulators on this plant is almost zero.
