Lobelia Grower Tips:

Techno lobelias are relatively fast growers that have a semi-trailing habit and excellent heat tolerance. They 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).

The perfect choice for the boldest blues and brightest whites.
Strong densely branched habits are ideal for hanging baskets and mixed combinations.
Bred for superior heat tolerance ensures Techno stays in color all season long.
