Common Name: Snapdragon Costa Apricot

Scientific Name: Antirrhinum majus

Life Cycle: Annual 

Remarks: Popular apricot colour. Exceptionally robust stems, high yield, and uniform growth in the field or greenhouse.

Bred for performance under short days and low temperaturesIf desired, for a bushier plant that produces more flower-producing side branches, pinch young plants back by half their height when plants have formed 4-6 leaves or are approximately 8-10cm tall. Pinching will delay the crop time by a few weeks. If pinching, space plants 15-30cm apart. Direct seeding is not recommended.

Height: When grown as a one-cut, stems can be as long as the full height of the plants. When grown for multiple cuts per plant, stems vary in length at 30-90cm. 

Planting advice: 

Light is required for germination, but a fine layer of vermiculite covering the seeds can maintain moisture levels and prevent algae growth.

Germination should occur in 7–14 days at 21–24°C.

After emergence, maintain a soil temperature of 18–24°C.

After the seedlings have 3–5 true leaves, grow at 10–14°C at night and 16°C during the day.
