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.
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.
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, 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.
