Bidens (tickseed sunflower plants) are sun-loving annuals with fern-leafed foliage and bright yellow flowers. These plants bloom continuously and are self-cleaning. They are suitable for landscapes and mixed containers, and since they like moist soil, they can create a cover for bare, open areas such as ditches. One thing your customer may love about Bidens is that they self-sow. Bidens also attract pollinators and butterflies, blooming from July to October.


Growing Tips

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 Bidens, we recommend using a constant feed program of 150-200 ppm N. Maintain a pH between 5.8 - 6.2.

Pinching

For Compact Yellow we recommend one pinch 5-10 days after transplant, once the roots are established.

Spacing

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

Height Control

Plant growth regulators are optional with Bidens, though not necessary under high light intensities. 1-3 sprays of ALAR (B-Nine) 2 gr/L according to required plant size.

Pests

Whiteflies, aphids, and thrips are common pest problems with Bidens.

Disease

Compact Yellow 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 Compact Yellow 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 Compact Yellow 5-10 days after transplanting to your final container. 

Unrooted Cuttings

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.
