NICOTIANA SENSATION MIX
Sensation Mixed Nicotiana Seeds 5825. Scarlet, crimson, rose, lavender and yellow flowers predominate in this nicely balanced mix. Also known as Flowering Tobacco. Unlike regular Nicotiana, this mix blooms all day long. Spectacular plants grow to 90 cm (3′) in height.
How to Grow
6200 seed/gram. Start seed six weeks early indoors in a soil-less mix leaving them uncovered on the surface of the growing medium. As the seed is minuscule, take care when sowing. Carefully water the growing medium with a mister. Germination will normally occur at 24 C (75 F) in 15 days. Grow-on under lights at 17 C (62 F), gradually raising the temperature to 23 C (73 F). Harden off and transplant outside after the danger of frost has passed. Sow directly in the garden in mid to late May. Outdoors the soil mix should be finely pulverized and well enriched in order to produce tall plants and large flowers. Space plants 30-45 cm (12-18″) apart in the garden. Keep well watered during periods of drought.
