TORENIA fournieri KAUAI F1 FORMULA MIXTURE

Pelleted seeds
More compact and earlier with a well-branched habit compared to Clown, Kauai offers the fullest complement of the most vivid colours including unique Magenta and Lemon Drop. The series grows about 2 in./5 cm shorter than Clown on average, so crop management is easier and more cost effective. Kauai is also easier to schedule – it has a tight, consistent, 5 to 7-day window without Lemon Drop; the series’ flowering window may be extended a few days with Lemon Drop. Gardeners value Torenia for its superior performance in extreme heat and humidity, and exotic appearance in small garden settings, mixed combos and colour bowls; also suited to indoor containers. A great shade performer, this is an alternative to traditional impatiens.

Torenia Kauai
(Torenia fournieri)

Germination

Media
Use a well-drained, disease-free, soilless medium with a pH of 5.5 to 6.0 and a medium initial nutrient charge (EC 0.75 mmhos/cm with a 1:2 extraction).

Sowing
Plug tray size 288 cells. Do not cover or bury the seed.

Germination takes 4 to 6 days.

Soil temperature: 71 to 76°F (22 to 24°C)

Light: Light is required.

Moisture: Keep soil moist but not saturated (level 4)
during Stage 1 for optimal germination.

Humidity: Maintain 95% relative humidity (RH) until radicle emergence.

Plug Production

Media
Use a well-drained, disease-free, soilless medium with a pH of 5.5 to 6.0 and a medium initial nutrient charge (EC 0.75 mmhos/cm with a 1:2 extraction).

Sowing
Plug tray size from 288 cells. Do not cover or bury the seed.

Stage 1 – Germination takes 4 to 6 days. Soil temperature: 71 to 76°F (22 to 24°C) Light: Light is required.
Moisture: Keep soil moist but not saturated (level 4) during Stage 1 for optimal germination.

Humidity: Maintain 95% relative humidity (RH) until radicle emergence.

Stage 2
Soil temperature: 68 to 73°F (20 to 23°C)

Light: Up to 2,500 f.c. (26,900 Lux)

Moisture: Start to slightly reduce soil moisture (level 4) to allow the roots to penetrate into the media.

Fertilizer: Apply fertilizer at rate 1 (less than 100 ppm N/less than 0.7 mS/cm EC) from nitrate-form fertilizers with low phosphorous.

Stage 3
Soil temperature: 68 to 70°F (20 to 21°C)

Light: Up to 2,500 f.c. (26,900 Lux)

Moisture: Allow the media to further dry until the surface becomes brown to dark brown (level 3) before watering. Keep the moisture level at wet-dry cycle (moisture level 4 to 3). Do not allow the seedlings to wilt as they do not recover very well.

Fertilizer: Increase fertilizer to rate 2 (100 to 175 ppm N/0.7 to 1.2 mS/cm EC).

Growth Regulators: Growth regulators are not needed.

Stage 4
Soil temperature: 65 to 67°F (18 to 19°C)

Light: Up to 5,000 f.c. (53,800 Lux) if optimal temperature can be maintained.

Moisture: Same as Stage 3.

Growing On to Finish

Media
Use a well-drained, disease-free, soilless medium with a pH of 5.8 to 6.2 and a medium initial nutrient charge.

Temperature
Nights: 62 to 64°F (17 to 18°C)

Days: 65 to 70°F (18 to 21°C)

Light
Keep light as high as possible while maintaining recommended temperatures.

Irrigation
Avoid both excessive watering and drought.

Fertilizer
Starting a week after transplant, apply fertilizer weekly at rate 3 (175 to 225 ppm N/1.2 to 1.5 mS/cm) using predominately nitrate-form fertilizer with low phosphorus and high potassium. Maintain the media EC at 1.5 to 2.0 mS/cm and pH at 5.8 to 6.2.

Growth Regulators
Cycocel (chlormequat) can be used at rate of 500-750ppm (4.2 to 6.4 ml/l 11.8% formulation or 0.7 to 1.0 g/l of 75% formulation) at two weeks after transplant, repeat as necessary.

Bonzi (paclobutrazol) 20 to 30ppm (5.0 to 7.5 ml/l, 0.4% formulation) spray also works but slightly less effective than Cycocel.

Avoid using B-Nine/Alar or tank mix of B-Nine/Cycocel as B-Nine will bleach flower color to become less intense. B-Nine will also delay flower timing.

Pinching
No need.
