Score first with Dart
It’s your turn to win with the NEW Dart Series. Save money on crop time, heating, and chemical use and space in the greenhouse. Dart is 1 to 2 weeks earlier than the competition, with no heat required for production. And, it requires fewer to no PGRs to fit in a range of pot sizes, saving growing space as well as making shipping easier. With retail-ready colour and better blooming potential, Dart will be the series to beat at retail, decreasing costs and increasing sales!

Plug crop time: 4 to 6 weeks
Transplant to finish: Spring/late Spring 9 to 11 weeks, late Summer/Autumn 5 to 7 weeks (outdoors)

  • This new series doesn’t require heat for production, compared to other Spring products.
  • Naturally fits in more pot sizes with fewer to no PGRs, and more plants can be grown per ft2/m2 compared to other varieties.
  • More layers can be transported on a rack due to the compact habit.
  • Dart shows much more colour at retail compared to competing series, and has the potential for more blooming.
  • Suitable for both small (4 in./13 cm, 6 in./15 cm, quarts) and larger (8 in./19 cm, gallon, 2 gallon) pots.
  • Fits nicely into retail programs due to its versatility in all pot sizes and a uniform flowering window for all colours except Scarlet, which is 1 week later to flower.

Slightly more vigorous than others in the series. Faster to flower, shows more colour and has a more vigorous plant habit than competing varieties.
