Plant Description

Article Type: (GOLD NUGGET SEED®)
Life Cycle: Perennial
Family: Portulacaceae
Origin: USA: California and Southwest Oregon
Special Features: Mixture of many newly bred colors and forms. The best existing cotyledon hybrids today. Round flowers also semi-double. A very attractive plant for container production and will have impulse appeal in garden centres. Gold medal prize winner at the IGA in Stuttgart 1993 (Krämer). In warmer conditions a northern exposure with a cool root run is preferred.
Historical: Introduced by JELITTO PERENNIAL SEEDS in 1989. The genus is named after Virginian, Meriwether Lewis, leader of the Lewis and Clark expedition, the first to cross the North American continent in 1804-1806.

1 Gram
Sowing Rates/Trays: 2 per cell
Plug tray recommended size(s): 72 / 128
Sowing Direction:

(16) See 15 with the exception of germination being slower and more irregular. This poses no problems.

(15) Rapidly germinating, keep seed in constant moisture (not wet) with temperatures of about +20°C [68°F]. Seeds must be covered thinly. Do not cover very small seeds, but tightly press into the earth. Keep in cooler conditions after germination occurs.

Best Sowing Date
(northern Hemisphere, Field condition):
Anytime
Sowing to Germination: 3 - 4 weeks
Germination to Transplant: 4 - 8 weeks
Transplanting to Potting: 6 - 10 weeks
Cutting back at Transplanting: Not Necessary.
Container Size(s): 1 plug per 8/9 cm (3 1/2") / 1-2 plugs per 11/12 cm (4 1/2")
Vernalization: A prudent recommendation would be to provide 6-12 weeks at an average daily temperature of 40°F (5°C). Exposure to cold may not be necessary for flowering but might improve quality.
Forcing: An obvious place to experiment - following vernalization - would be raising daytime temperatures to 60° - 65°F (15° - 17°C). Provide 16 hours of continuous lighting. During the short days of winter, provide a night interruption lighting of 4 hours between 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m.
Fertilizer: Light (100-150 ppm)
