Lantana

Little Lucky is a new series of lantana that is naturally compact and uniform across all colors. It is great for bench runs and pot-tight production. It finishes up to three weeks earlier than other lantanas on the market. Little Lucky is perfect for 41/2-inch programs.

Use a well-drained, soilless medium with a pH of 5.8 to 6.2. During the first 10 to 14 days, water media sparingly and never saturate. Allow media to dry somewhat between waterings.

Little Lucky lantana has moderate to heavy fertilizer requirements to keep the plants growing vigorously. Reducing the feed causes the plant to become woody with reduced flowering. Use a balanced fertilizer at 225 to 300 ppm every watering to ensure maximum growth and flowering. Excessive phosphorous and ammoniacal nitrogen will promote unwanted vegetative growth. Flush pots periodically with clear water to avoid build-up of salts.

Keep light intensities above 5,000 foot-candles. Low light levels promote stem stretch and poor flowering.

Pinch seven to 10 days after transplanting. When pinched, plants should be actively growing with roots at or near the edge of the pot. Depending on pot size and local conditions, Little Lucky should be pinched one to three times.
