Transplanting Instructions:

Use sterile and well-drained root medium with EC of 1.5. Root medium pH should be between 5.7 and 6.3. Water the liners in with a fertilizer solution. Pinch the plants, leaving two nodes, 10 to 14 days after potting the liners. Liners can be pinched leaving two nodes at potting only if liners have not been hardened or stressed after rooting. Earlier pinching will reduce crop time.

Homeowner Planting and Maintenance Tips:

Easy to grow in moist, fertile soil in full sun.
