HEDERA HELIX YELLOW RIPPLE
Sticking: Stick three Hedera eye node cuttings as a bundle into a single propagation cell.
Temperature: Warm propagation temperatures encourage rapid root growth. Recommended night temperatures of 62 - 65 F. Propagation areas with high levels of indirect lighting experience a boost in daytime temperatures. Misting during the first 7 - 9 days of propagation can diminish excessive wilting.
Fertilize: Use an initial fertilizer concentration of 75 - 100 ppm. Increase fertilization concentration to 150 - 200 ppm at root formation.
After root: Expect root initiation to occur after 7 - 10 days. Mist reduction and increased lighting will encourage development of eye nodes.
More information: pH levels should be held between 5.8 and 6.2. Monitor pH in the presence of interveinal chlorosis. Avoid rising pH by use of acid fertilization. Additionally, review irrigation practices and allow drying to occur in between irrigations. Plan on 6 weeks of propagation after sticking for well-established roots to grow. Allow additional time in high density propagation trays for eye node growth development.
Environment: Environmental factors are key to exceptional Hedera growth. Transition rooted cuttings at transplant to an area of slightly increased light, cooler temperatures and reduced humidity. Recommended light concentration of 5000 to 6000 ft candles with a night temperature of 60 - 62 F.
After rooting: Reduce irrigation and allow pots to dry slightly between irrigations.
CLEAN STOCK: Susceptibility of Hedera to viruses and bacteria are well known. Kientzler Hedera are shipped from Kientzler Innovaplant with commitment to an unsurpassed clean record of production reliability.
Crop Scheduling: Hedera Pots should finish in a total of 12 weeks with 6 weeks of propagation and 6 weeks of finishing time.
