Lobularia Marineland™

LOBULARIA MARINELAND™ VEGETATIVE CULTURE SHEET

Recommended Containers: 4” to 6 ½” containers; 8” bowl to 12” HB

Crop Planning from cell pack:
Pot Size Plants per pot (pp) Finish Time (weeks)
4” pot (10 cm) 1 pp 5 to 6
5” pot (12 cm) 1 pp 6 to 7
6” pot (15 cm) 2 pp 7 to 8
8” bowl (20 cm) 3pp 7 to 8
12” HB (30 cm) 4 pp 7 to 9

Temperature Requirement: Day – 70 to 75F (21 to 24C)
Night – 55 to 62F (13 to 17C)
Cooler nights for finishing will enhance the quality of plants.

Media and pH requirements: Use a well-drained soil mix with a pH range of 5.6 to 6.2. Maintain a moderate moist soil condition to optimize finishing time. Avoid over watering, particularly during cool and cloudy weather. EC 0.08 to 1.25 is optimum.

Fertilizer requirements: Feed at 100 to 150 PPM Nitrogen every irrigation or 150 to 200 ppm Nitrogen with an alternate clear water irrigation.

Pinching requirements: No pinch is required. Lobularia are very self branching.

Growth Regulators: No PGR’s should be required with cool night temperatures and a high light level. 2,000-ppm (B-Nine) is affective at controlling plant height under lower light conditions and warm growing temperatures.

Disease and insect pests:
Aphids, Thrip, Whitefly and Fungus Gnats/Shore Flies

Pythium/ Phytophthora –Botrytis and Mildew. Irrigate early in day to allow foliage to dry before dusk and proper air movement will help prevent crown disease issues.
