A great plant for spring baskets mixed containers and is a fast grower. A well-grown hanging basket can have hundreds of blooms and dense dark-green foliage. Bacopa doesn't tolerate heat well and probably won't survive summer temps in hanging baskets but work well when mixed with other plants. If a Bacopa plant in a mixed container is lost during summer other plants will fill the vacant space.
Plant 5 plugs per 10in basket with Springeri Ferns Vinca Vines or other varieties to create a mixed basket. Grow at 50-60 degree night temperature in well-drained soil pH between 5.5 and 6.5. Feed nitrogen at 150-200 ppm. Botrytis can be a problem.
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.
