Alsobia have white, lace-like flowers that appear as plants become fully rooted in the pot. Your customers may like that Alsobia prefer heavy shade, so they grow well underneath gutters.

Growing Tips

For best results with Alsobia, we recommend using a balanced fertilizer on a constant feed program of 200 ppm N. Maintain a pH between 5.0 - 6.5.

Pinching

We recommend that you pinch Alsobia Dianthiflora Lace Flower 5-10 days after transplanting to your final container. Additional trimming may be necessary for the final shape of the pot.

Spacing

Alsobia should be spaced adequately to allow airflow and light penetration between the foliage. Usually 2’ centers on baskets will be enough.

We do not recommend plant growth regulators for Alsobia. Control growth through proper pinching and trimming.

Pests

Mealybugs and thrips are the biggest pest problems for Alsobia.

Disease

Alsobia Dianthiflora Lace Flower are not prone to many diseases, but watch for botrytis while the days are short. This grey rot is usually associated with wet or humid conditions. You can prevent botrytis by allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, allowing for good airflow in your greenhouse, and spacing to allow the sun to penetrate to the soil level. The most common chemicals used to treat botrytis are Medallion and Banrot. Use them as a drench according to each label’s instructions.

Planting Alsobia Dianthiflora Lace Flower Liners

  1. We recommend planting 4 starter plants per 10 inch basket. Use a well-drained soil in your baskets and plant your starter plants deep, allowing the ellepot to be completely covered by the soil. If you are planting 4" pots, 1 plant per pot should be sufficient. Plant it directly in the middle of your pot.
  2. Pinch Alsobia Dianthiflora Lace Flower 5-10 days after transplanting to your final container. Additional pinches may be required to shape your final pot. 

Rooted Cuttings

Cuttings vary in size between different plant families. These rooted starter plants will arrive ready to be transplanted in to your final container. If they are to be used in a landscape application, you will need to establish them in a 4 inch pot or an 1801 before planting outside.
