Conga is taking the compact calibrachoa market by storm! Growers find it easy to produce by following these regional tips and tricks.
Conga can be grown with no pinch and no PGRs. Growers desiring some control can pinch 2 weeks prior to transplant, followed by a B-Nine 2,500 ppm spray application 5 weeks after transplant.
Conga varieties were successfully grown with no pinch and no PGR. B-Nine treatments generally delayed flowering on most varieties. For growers that want to use PGRs, we would recommend applying a late Bonzi 1 ppm drench.
Note: Conga Red needs a B-Nine 2,500 ppm spray or Bonzi 1 ppm drench 6 weeks after transplant for a toned plant that matches other Congas in the series. Crops produced for early flowering dates before week 3 in Florida may benefit from light PGR drenches at 0.25 to 0.5 ppm Bonzi.
