Our Oregano Hot And Spicy Liners are well-rooted starter plants that come ready to transplant into your final container. The herb commonly known as thyme is widely used for its aroma, flavor, and visual appeal in both culinary and ornamental applications. Grow thyme as a container product or in 4 inch pots for landscape use.


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 Oregano Hot And Spicy, use a constant feed program of 150-200 ppm N on well rooted plants. A pH between 5.8 and 6.2 is important for the healthiest plant color. In most cases, an additional supplement of iron is recommended in order to deepen the coloration of the foliage.

Pinching

We recommend that you pinch Oregano Hot And Spicy 5-10 days after transplanting to your final container. Growing herbs at cooler temperatures will help to keep the plants short and bushy.

Spacing

Space 4-inch, 6-inch, and gallon pots as needed to allow air flow and penetration of light between plants. Oregano Hot And Spicy can grow to a 24" spread. We do not recommend planting them in 1801 or other traditional market trays as they tend to get leggy and have the potential for fungus problems when planted too close together.

Height Control

Plant growth regulators are not recommended on herbs.

Pests

Whiteflies, aphids, and occasionally mealybugs are all insects to watch out for with Oregano Hot And Spicy.

Disease

Oregano Hot And Spicy is not prone to many diseases, but don't oversaturate the soil. If the plant sits in moist soil for an extended amount of time, you could end up with root rot, botrytis or a bacterial blight. Botrytis 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. To best fight root rot in herbs, look for an organic or garden-safe fungicide, like Neem Oil.

Planting Oregano Hot And Spicy Liners

  1. If you are planting 4" pots, 1 plant per pot should be sufficient. We recommend at least 3 starters per pot for 6" and larger. Use a well-drained soil in your baskets and plant your starter plants deep, allowing the ellepot to be completely covered by the soil. Plant it directly in the middle of your pot.
  2. Pinching is recommended 5-10 days after transplantation of rooted cuttings. A second pinch may be necessary depending on the size and shape of the final pot.

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.
