Lobelia Grower Tips:

Techno Heat Upright lobelias have excellent branching and a distinct upright habit. They are relatively fast growers that fill containers quickly. Pinch the plant as needed for 6-inch and larger containers. Avoid overwatering on young plants. Long days will hasten and improve flowering. Watch for thrips and thrips-vectored INSV (virus).

Upright habits are ideal for high-density small pot production.
Day-neutral flowering - blooms early and ensures you go to market first.
Class-leading heat tolerance keeps Techno in flower even when temperatures rise.

Although the flowers and foliage are dainty and delicate in appearance, this is a robust plant that brings a bold splash of color to the garden. The trailing habit is especially well suited to hanging baskets where it forms a rounded mass of color. The blue shades are a unique color accent for mixed container plantings.
