Culture guide

Sowing method

Sow 6-8 seeds per cell in a 128 or 264 tray (or comparable format).

Media

Fine lose substrates or glued plugs are suitable growing media. Maintain a pH value of around 4 (3.8 to 4.5).
In the beginning, the EC value should not exceed 1 to 1.25 mS/cm. Always use or mix with rainwater, if possible.
Higher light and temperature levels will encourage germination. A soil temperature of 20 °C and high humidity ensure the best germination results. The first phase, from germination until the established young plant, is approximately 8 weeks. Finished young plants after approximately 13 weeks.
