ORNAMENTALS - AGLAONEMA, ANTHURIUM, DIFFENBACHIA (DUMB CANE) AND SYNGONIUM

General Information

Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.

NOTE: Gibberellic Acid is an extremely potent plant growth regulator. For best results, read all directions for use thoroughly. Consult your local experiment station specialist, distributor, or the Nufarm agricultural specialist in your area for the spray schedule best suited to your conditions.

Discard any unused spray material at the end of each day. Prepare solution concentrations by mixing the required amount of product with water only in a clean, empty spray tank. Refer to individual crop sections and rate conversion tables provided in the labeling for the amount of GibGro to be applied.

Use only as directed. The label should be read thoroughly and understood before making applications.

Effectiveness requires that all parts of plant or crop must receive spray or desired result will not occur, so spray thoroughly. When a range of rates is indicated, use the concentration and spray volume recommended locally.

Data concerning the compatibility of GibGro with other agricultural compounds is not available, except where specified.

Refer to the label regarding tank mix information.

SPRAY INSTRUCTIONS FOR ORNAMENTALS, CUT FLOWERS AND TURFGRASS

The following instructions are based on results with common cultivars. Differences in responsiveness may vary from one cultivar to another, or from one set of growing conditions to another, or from one cultural management system to another. Therefore, prior to widespread usage, test a small number of plants from each cultivar under a specific set of growing and cultural management conditions to verify desired efficacy.

ORNAMENTALS

(All states except California)

AGLAONEMA, ANTHURIUM, DIFFENBACHIA (Dumb Cane) AND SYNGONIUM

To accelerate bloom and increase flowering: Apply a single foliar application of 250 to 500 ppm a.i. for one to four consecutive weeks beginning at the start of forcing for Aglaonema, Anthurium and Diffenbachia. Apply a single foliar application of 500 to 2,000 ppm a.i. for one to four consecutive weeks beginning at the start of forcing for Syngonium. Thoroughly apply solution to all growing points containing flower buds.

NOTE: Applying GibGro can increase flower yield and decrease time to flowering. To induce bloom, make 1 to 2 applications while plant is in the vegetative phase. For other Araceae cultivars, prior to application on a commercial basis, evaluate the effects of GibGro on a small number of plants.
