You can’t go wrong with Lucky. It is our go-to lantana series. We have exciting new propagation techniques to help you be successful from stick to finish!

North Region

The best treatment for Lucky varieties in propagation was the Florel 250 ppm/Configure 50 ppm treatment. We used two applications – the first as a spray 28 days after stick, and the second 1 week after transplant. We did not need additional PGRs in our trial. If you require a more compact habit, apply B-Nine 5,000 ppm tank mix with Cycocel 1,000 ppm as a spray 2-4 weeks after transplant.

South Region

The best treatment for Lucky varieties in this region in propagation was the Florel 300 ppm/Configure 75 ppm treatment. We used two applications – the first as a spray 21 days after stick, and the second 3 weeks after transplant. We did not need additional PGRs in our trial. If you require a more compact habit, apply B-Nine 2,500 ppm tank mix with Cycocel 750 ppm as a spray 2-4 weeks after transplant.
