B-9 at 500-750 ppm is effective. Snowstorm White and Snowstorm Giant Snowflake tend to be more vigorous than other sutera, Bonzi at a low rate is effective at controlling the growth on these plants.

Grower Tips

Grower Tip for 'Snowstorm'
- High light in production is essential in early season. Light shade is required for summer production.

Grower Tip for 'Giant Snowflake'
- You must keep Giant Snowflake under control, especially under dark weather conditions. Giant Snowflake should be treated with 500-750 ppm of B-9.

Do not allow plants to dry out as they will drop both buds and flowers causing the plants to flush out of bloom for several weeks.
