Tips for Success:

  • Natural compact habit reduces the need for PGR’s.   Enduring responds to DIF treatments for height control.
  • In larger container sizes consider adding 1 week to the production schedule to allow plants to size.
  • Enduring has a fine root system, allow plants to dry evenly to discourage root rotting.
  • Monitor EC closely, a high EC will also promote root rotting.
  • Enduring will benefit from weekly calcium chloride applications starting at the sign of first color for the prevention of bract edge burn.
  • Upper leaves turn yellow and appear chlorotic at the sign of first color.  Do not apply additional fertilizer as this may cause root damage.
  • Because of Enduring’s compact habit and fine root system it should not be grown cool.

 

 

Special Concerns:

  • Enduring should not be grown cool.
  • Yellowing at the sign of first color is a characteristic of the variety.
