Vernalization: A 5-6 weeek vernalization in 72 size plug trays, or in finished pots, at 32° - 41°F (0° - 5°C) may hasten the blooming by 1-2 weeks and improve the consistency. Further trials are recommended.
Forcing: Following vernalization, raise daytime temperatures to 60° - 65°F (15° - 17°C). Flowers should appear in 10-14 weeks.
