Lavandula Wee One
Plant unrooted cuttings the day of arrival making sure to open boxes immediately.
Use a well-drained medium with an EC of 0.75-0.80 and pH of 5.9-6.2.
It is recommended to use a rooting hormone to assist with uniformity and yield of rooting.
Plant cuttings gently in soil being mindful to not bury leaves.
Rooting soil temperature should be 70-72°F (21-24°C).
It is important to maintain high humidity during rooting. Keep under low mist or inside tent and mist periodically each hour for 7-10 days being mindful to avoid over misting based on conditions. Avoid saturation of soil.
Begin fertilization with 50-75ppm N when roots become visible. Average rooting time is 6-7 weeks.
Plants can be pinched after roots have been established. Be sure to leave 4-5 active internodes. Pinching ensure good branching and growth.
Rooted liners - Plant liners even with soil surface being mindful to not bury the liner.
Growing Media and Fertilizer
Well draining soil is recommended with plenty of aeration.
Optimum soil pH of 5.9-6.2
Use a well balanced fertilizer at a rate of 100-125 ppm. Periodic use of a calcium based fertilizer will help optimize the nutrient levels. Regular testing of soil samples to monitor conditions is suggested.
Watering - The Lavandula Wee One should be allowed to dry regularly between watering and never saturated. Be mindful to not allow plants to wilt. It is also suggested to leach regularly to avoid buildup of high soluble salt levels.
Temperatures - The minimum night temperature should be 55-60°F (13-15°C). The day temperature should be maintained at 65-75°F (18-24°C). Average daily temperature of 60°F (15°C) is optimal. It is beneficial to have a cold treatment to promote flowering.
Lighting - Lavandula preforms best under moderate to high light levels of 5,000-8,000 foot candles. Plants grown under short days will bulk up more uniformly. However, Wee One is naturally compact and will bulk well under long days.
Pinching - It is recommended to pinch once for smaller containers and twice on larger sizes.
Growth Regulators - Under most conditions, will not require PGR treatment. If needed, B-Nine at 1,500-2,500 ppm may be applied. Be mindful to trial all chemicals under your own particular conditions.
Insects and Diseases - Monitor regularly for thrips, whitefly, aphids and fungus gnats.
Wee One is relatively disease free but Pythium and Rhizoctonia can result from overwatering.
