Limonium hybrid is a cold-tolerant plant. It is basically grown in greenhouses. Limonium hybrid is harvested from October to June in warm regions and from June to October in cooler regions.

Suitable Place

Limonium hybrid grows well on land in humus soil. Prepare pH to 6.0 to 6.5.
Additionally liquid fertilizer can be applied according to the growth conditions. The height of beds should be kept at about 20cm. In open fields with poor drainage, keep bed slightly higher. Use mulching appropriately.


The temperature is 15-25°C. The minimum nighttime temperature should be 12°C.


Gray mold on flowers, powdery mildew on leaves and russet should be paid attention. Be cautious of thrips, spider mites, and cutworm.


Sinuata produces flower buds when young shoots at germination encounter low temperatures. Flower buds of this species do not develop until large seedlings (8 to 10 true leaves) are advanced in seedling age. It is a plant with a high demand for low temperatures. When aiming for early flowering by heating the plants, if the plants are heated too early or exposed to high temperatures too quickly, it may not work well. As a result of our trials, we have found that the plants are exposed to natural cold until early January in warm areas, until the end of December in intermediate areas, and until mid-November in high-cool areas, and then we start heating them. The temperature is not raised all at once, but is gradually increased. The temperature should be 15°C (59°F) at night in the case of super-accelerated production, and 10-12°C (50-70°F) in the normal case. During the daytime, the maximum temperature should be 25°C (77°F). Irrigate the crop whenever it dries out and avoid high humidity as much as possible. When taking the second flower, do not leave the weak branch of the first flower unattended, but cut it off early and apply fertilizer to accelerate the bud burst.


The plants should be watered sufficiently in the early stages. When the bolting stems reach 40-50 cm in length, decrease water to adjust the stem hardness as well.


Plant space 40 cm apart, 40 cm between rows. Minimum ground temperature about minimum 15°C required if to plant in early spring. Use one layer of trellis netting, with the same square size of the planted plants.
