Cut flower, pots, container and landscape perennial; attracts bees and butterflies
Sun - Partial shade
20" / 50 cm
1-2 seeds per plug
Stage 1 (10-18 days)
Transplant plugs after 6-7 weeks. Maintain temperatures of 60-65 °F (15-18 °C). Lower temperatures cause premature flowering and poor garden performance. Fertilize at 150-200 ppm nitrogen.
For cut flower production, space Fama at 16 x 20" (40 x 50 cm) between plants.
Cuts can be harvested for 3 consecutive years. Cut at bud stage or half-open stage.
Use a well-drained, growing substrate, 1,5-3 kg/m³ complete balanced fertilizer, 0-2 kg/m³ slow release fertilizer (3-9 months), iron-chelate, micronutrients, pH 5.8-6.5. Field: loamy sandy to sandy humus soils with good drainage and good nutrition levels. Standard fertilization: 80-100 g/m2 of a slow release fertilizer.
Grow at 12-15 °C or outdoors. Overwinter indoors frost free at 3-5 °C.
Moderate fertilization levels are required. Fertilize the crop weekly with 130-150 ppm nitrogen (at 2 kg/m³ slow release fertilizer in substrate), using a complete balanced fertilizer. Don’t fertilize after mid September. In spring fertilize 150-200 ppm nitrogen of a potassium balanced fertilizer (N: K2O-ratio: 1:1,5). Prevent magnesium deficiency by applying magnesium sulphate (0,05 %) 1-2 times and in case of iron deficiency (above pH 6.0) apply iron-chelate 1-2 times.
