Conga™ Calibrachoa
Conga™ Calibrachoa
  • Naturally compact habit is perfect for pot-tight production and no PGRs needed.
  • Great choice for quarts, color bowls and window boxes.
  • Easy to grow – very uniform.
  • Excellent pH tolerance and profuse flowering give Conga superior hold at retail.
  • Flowers one week earlier than Cabaret Series.
NEW Cherry: Color addition has larger flowers than others in the series.
NEW Lavender: Has excellent branching for a fuller plant with more blooms. Upright, mounded habit is a great fit for the series.
NEW Red Improved: Has lower vigor to better fit the series and doesn’t need PGRs! Easy to mix in combos with the rest of the series. Growers are now able to produce patriotic combos in red, white and blue for the US, and a red and white combo for Canada.

Conga is taking the compact calibrachoa market by storm! Growers find it easy to produce by following these regional tips and tricks.

North Region

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.

South Region

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.
