Pink and White are two new additions to the SunDancer series of low-maintenance annuals bred for heat tolerance and extended season performance. Upright and vigorous, SunDancers are an ideal choice for height in combination planters.
In propagation, SunDancer varieties take four weeks to root. Bottom heat will enhance uniformity in rooting. Rooting hormone is not required. Stick one cutting per cell. Avoid excessive misting, which will slow rooting. Pinch cuttings in week 2 to encourage branching. Growth regulation will prevent stretch. Apply a tank mix of 2,500-ppm B-Nine (daminozide) and 1,000-ppm Cycocel (chlormequat chloride) on days 7-10.
Transplant cutting to 4-inch, 6-inch or 1-gallon containers. Grow plants at an average daily temperature of 66-70° F. Pinch once established, approximately one week after transplanting. Angelonia are not photoperiod sensitive, and lighting is not required for flowering in early spring. Fertilize using a well-balanced fertilizer containing 200- to 250-ppm nitrogen.
