Tapestry™- Tips and Basic Culture

Click on the link to print or save this document:

  • Dark  red bracts over vibrant green leaves with creamy yellow margins
  • 8.5 week response time.  Flower initiation approximately September 25th for December 1st timing.  
  • Medium vigor plant habit
  • Upright branching
  • Horizontal bract position

Key Selling Points:

  • Upgrade to Holly Point™ offering better vigor with less susceptibility to root rotting and less sensitivity to high soluble salts.
  • Dark red bracts are held above bright green foliage with creamy yellow margins.  Transitional bracts show a touch of red for added interest.
  • Superior post production characteristics.
  • Resistant to bract edge burn and premature cyathia drop.
  • Heat tolerance allows Tapestry to be grown in warmer regions. 

Tips for Success:

  • Tapestry should not be grown cold.  Excessive delay and a noticeable reduction in bract size may occur.  For best quality plants grow and finish Tapestry under traditional temperatures.
  • Keep temperatures warm and humid through the vegetative growth phase for strong vegetative growth. 
  • Cooler temperatures once plants have reached a saleable stage will enhance the color of the bracts.
  • Tapestry’s vigor allows it to be grown in a variety of container sizes.  For larger container sizes such as 8” and 10” forms consider adding extra grow time, allowing plants to size. 


Special Concerns:

  • If side shoots begin to form prior to pinching growth regulating will prevent shoots from stretching and becoming dominant in the finishing stages.
  • Tapestry is responsive to growth regulating and DIF treatments for height control.

Suggested Product Forms:

  • 2.5-3” Mini Pinched
