Cadet Upright is the best choice for your 1 qt. verbena production. It is naturally compact. Follow these regional culture recommendations to get the perfect quart every time.
We were able to successfully grow Cadet Upright Verbena with no PGRs under cool nights with average daily temperatures of 60°F (16°C) or less. We pinched approximately 4 weeks after stick and transplanted 2 weeks after pinch. When ADT exceeds 60°F (16°C), we recommend B-Nine 2,500/Cycocel 750 ppm tank mix spray 2 weeks after transplant.
Midwest, Canada and Northeast Region
With low light levels during Midwest Spring conditions, a 1 ppm Bonzi drench 4 weeks after transplant held plants and controlled excessive growth with no effect on flowering.
South and Southeast Region
An early spray application to liners of 3 ppm Bonzi 2 weeks prior to transplant is recommended to promote branching and tone plants. We were able to successfully grow Cadet Upright Verbena with no finishing PGRs with average daily temperatures in excess of 72°F (22°C). If temperatures spike late in the crop cycle, use a Bonzi 1 ppm drench.
