Our breeding has been focused on compact moundding habit plants that are loaded with quarter sized blooms. These are favorites among combination planters because they fill vacant space. They mix well with Verbena Coleus and Bacopa since all of these varieties have similar cultural needs.
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.
Calibrachoas take about 5 weeks to root at 70 degree night temperature depending on your conditions. Plants may defoliate in the winter. Allow them to dry out between watering. Maintain a pH of 5-6.
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.
