Here are a few petunia growing tips from Randy Uhl, R&D Coordinator for Danziger North America.
The AMORE™ series is well matched in flowering response. Quarts and 6-inch pots will finish in 13 weeks from stick. 10-inch and 12-inch containers with three or four PPP will also finish in 13 weeks from a URC.
AMORE™ petunias can be finished for early season sales under high light conditions, 4500 FTC or greater.
A few quick tips for successfully growing petunias:
- Maintain soil pH at 5.5 to 6.0 for proper minor element availability, particularly iron (Fe)
- Sub-irrigate or water early in the day to control greenhouse humidity and eliminate moisture sitting on leaves for an extended period of time
- Avoid too low of temperatures, low light levels, and over-saturated soil
- King of Hearts and Queen of Heart may need an early application of PGR (B-9 Daminozide) after transplant since they are slightly more aggressive
