Germination

Key Flowering Facts

• First year-flowering perennial.

• Vernalization: Not required.

• Photoperiod response: Facultative long day crop.

Media

Use a well-drained, disease-free media with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5 and a medium initial nutrient charge (EC 0.7–1.0 mmhos/cm).

Sowing: 288 cell tray: 1 seed/cell
             
180 cell tray: 1 seed/cell    
                
84 cell tray: 4 seedscell

Do not cover the seed.
Spray preventively with fungicide against damping off.

Stage 1

Germination takes approximately 5-6 days.
Do not cover the seed.
Spray preventively with fungicide against damping off.

Soil temperature: 65 to 68°F (18 to 20°C)

Light: Light is necessary for improving germination and reducing early stretch.

Moisture: Maintain soil constantly moist (level 4) in Stage 1.

Humidity: Maintain 95 to 97% relative humidity (RH) until radicles emerge.

Media: Use a well-drained, disease-free media with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5 and a medium initial nutrient charge (EC 0.7–1.0 mmhos/cm).

Sowing: 288 cell tray: 1 seed/cell

84 cell tray: 4 seedscell

Soil temperature: 65 to 68°F (18 to 20°C)

Light: Light is necessary for improving germination and reducing early stretch.

Moisture: Maintain soil constantly moist (level 4) in stage 1.
Humidity: Maintain 95 to 97% relative humidity (RH) until radicles emerge.

Stage 2

Soil temperature: 65 to 68°F (18 to 20°C)
Light: Up to 2,500 f.c. (26,900 Lux)
Moisture: Soil moisture can be slightly reduced (level 3-4) to allow the roots to penetrate into the media. Don’t let the media dry out.
Fertilizer: Apply fertilizer at rate 1 (less than 100 ppm N less than 0.7 mmhos/cm EC) from nitrate-form fertilizers.

Stage 3

Soil temperature: 65 to 68°F (18 to 20°C)
Light: Up to 2,500 f.c. (26,900 Lux)
Moisture: Allow media to dry further until the surface becomes brown to dark brown (level 3) before watering. Keep the moisture level to medium moist (moisture level 3).
Fertilizer: Maintain fertilizer at rate 1 (less than 100 ppm N/less than 0.7 mmhos/cm EC) from nitrate-form fertilizers, and keep media with a medium pH of 5.5 to 6.2

Growth Regulators: Digitalis is responsive to B-Nine/Alar (daminozide), and Bonzi. B-Nine/Alar (daminozide) at 2000 ppm (3.0 g/l of 64% formulation or 2.5 gr./l. of 85% formulation ) can be applied at 2-3 weeks after sowing. Repeat a week later if necessary.

In warmer conditions, Bonzi (paclobutrazol) spray at about 5 ppm (1.25 ml/l 0.4% formulation) or Sumagic (uniconazole) spray at 3ppm (5.5 ml/l of 0.055% formulation) can be used. In Northwest Europe, Tilt (propiconazole) is also effective for Digitalis height control. A weekly spray with 0.3 ml/l is advised.
