Growing Tips

Nemesia prefers moist, well-drained soil that's rich in organic matter with a balanced fertilizer and a constant feed program of 150-200 ppm N. Maintain a pH between 5.8 - 6.0. Optimal EC of 1.0 to 1.2.

Pinching

We recommend that you first pinch Nesia Sunshine 5-10 days after transplanting to your final container. Pinch early and soft to promote good basal branching.

Spacing

Nemesia should be spaced adequately to allow airflow and light penetration between the foliage.

Height Control

Use high light intensities to control growth. If needed, Danziger recommends the PGR B-9 3750 / Arest 10 ppm tank mix.

Pests

Whiteflies, aphids, and thrips are the primary problem pests with Nemesia.

Disease

Nesia Sunshine 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 Nesia Sunshine Liners

  1. We recommend planting 4-5 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 Nesia Sunshine 5-10 days after transplanting to your final container.

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.
