Queen Size Color!

Princettia Queen™ Pink is a whole new plant category producing large, vivid pink bracts. This series is a midsized plant, in between the compact Princettias and standard poinsettia.

Pinching: Princettia varieties branch freely. In smaller container sizes, pinching is not a requirement. However, in larger containers (6 or 6.5 inch) pinching will produce a fuller plant. Consider using Cycocel after the pinch or the Florel sandwich technique before and after pinch to enhance uniform branching. If Cycocel or Florel are used, monitor height closely after the application. This may be the only time plant growth regulators are needed throughout production.
PGR: Princettia Queen varieties have medium vigor and benefit from light PGR applications. Growers can use Cycocel post pinch to even things up. PGR sprays and drenches are recommended. We have found success with Cycocel at 750-1250 ppm.
Pests: Monitor closely for whiteflies and watch root health throughout production.
Diseases: Botrytis can be a risk near or at harvest, especially on very ripe plants postharvest.
