(northern Hemisphere, Field condition):
Anytime

Germination to Transplant: 6 - 8 weeks

Vernalization: No vernalization required for flowering in the first year.
Forcing: There has been no research, but an obvious place to experiment - following vernalization - would be raising daytime temperatures to 60° - 65°F (15° - 17°C). Provide 16 hours of continuous lighting. During the short days of winter, provide a night interruption lighting of 4 hours between 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. Some later flowering species can be forced in 14 - 16 weeks and perhaps sooner at warmer temperatures. Further experiments are warranted.
Fertilizer: Light (100-150 ppm)
