MegaCopa for mega-success

MegaCopa Bacopa has emerged as one of our fastest-growing products, taking market share and delivering grower success due to its heat tolerance and floriferousness. We went from selling these as 2 for 1 cuttings to 1 for 1 cuttings, and we have found that growers have just as much success with MegaCopa this way and the product looks the same or better going to the store.”

Regional culture recommendations

We performed extensive PGR trials and found that MegaCopa White can be successfully grown without PGRs.

An early Cycocel 750 ppm spray application approximately 2 weeks after transplant, or Bonzi 3 ppm drench 4 weeks after transplant, are options that worked well. This process provided adequate control and helped produce a well-toned and filled pot.
