Argyranthemum has an upright habit with daisy-like blooms all summer long! Blooms bouquet much like a Chrysanthemum and are about the size of a half dollar. Argyranthemums can be used in landscaping window boxes and combination planters. Propagation prohibitied
Your unrooted cuttings will arrive freshly cut. You will need to plant them immediately
and begin a misting cycle to root the cuttings. This will leech the soil of nutrients, so during the propagation phase use a constant feed of 1/3 the normal recommended dosage
of fertilizer until well rooted.
For best results with Argyranthemum, use well-drained soil in full sun with moderate feed (200 ppm nitrogen). Plant 4 plugs per 10in basket. Watch for spider mites thrips and white flies. Botritis can also be a problem especially in mature blooms.
Cuttings vary in size between different plant families, but most can be described as tip cuttings (ivy are leaf-and-eye stem cuttings not tips) that stick nicely
in small plug trays such as the 105-plug tray we use (some varieties are better suited for a 50 cell tray, i.e. Angelwing Begonia, Bougainvillea, Setcrecea, etc.). Please do not order unrooted cuttings unless you are an experienced propagator with mist systems and proper temperature control.
