Crop Planning from Cell Pack:
Pot Size Plants per Pot (pp) Finish Time (weeks)
1 Gallon 1pp 10-13
3 Gallon 1pp 13-16
Plant week 8 (Feb 17) Finish 1 gallon May 12
Plant week 11 (March 10) Finish 3 gallon June 23
65° to 75° F (18° to 21° C) day
60° to 65° F (15° to 18° C) night
Production in very temperatures of above 85° F (29°C) is not an issue.
Media and pH Requirements: A well-drained soil is required, possibly with decomposed bark. Water thoroughly and let soil dry between irrigation. Anigozanthos will require moist conditions during the growth and flowering stage of production (spring). When temperatures are cool and light levels are diminished, the water requirement is reduced so let the soil dry to a blonde color before irrigation. 5.5 to 6.5 is a proper pH.
Fertilizer Requirements: 150 to 200 PPM Nitrogen with intermittent clear water irrigation to keep salts from building. Fertilize with a low Phosphorus formulation 20-10-20 or 15-5-20.
Pinching Requirement: None
Growth Regulators: None
Disease and Insect Pests: Rust and Alternaria: Spray with copper-based fungicide to prevent spotting on fans during high humidity.
Pythium: For prevention of root rot diseases, drench with a broad spectrum fungicide as labeled.
