General pest and disease practices as listed in notes. Watch for thrips, white flies and aphids. Powdery Mildew can be problematic, treat as needed.

Grower Tips:

A good 4 inch crop can be produced without spaciing. Colors up evenly among all varieties.

Dalina Midi are best in small pot sizes and we recommended 4 to 4.5 inch pots. Dalina Grande will work best in 6 inch or larger pots.

Dahlias are long day plants. Provide long days or night interruption lighting to induce blooming if finishing before the first of April.
