  • circleLife cycle

    Calibrachoa, commonly known as Mini Petunia, begins its life cycle when seeds germinate in warm, moist soil conditions; however, Calibrachoa Minifamous Double Pinkmania is often propagated through cuttings due to plant breeders' rights. After rooting, the cuttings grow into vegetative plants and develop a robust root system, quickly forming mounds of foliage. As the temperature rises and day length increases, the plants initiate flowering, showcasing their signature double pink blooms that attract pollinators. Throughout the spring and summer, Calibrachoa Minifamous Double Pinkmania continually bloom, requiring deadheading to promote more flowers and prevent energy diversion to seed production. As the seasons change to fall and temperatures cool, the plant’s growth and flowering begin to slow down. Finally, as Calibrachoa Minifamous Double Pinkmania is perennial in mild climates but treated as an annual in cooler regions, it will either become dormant with the onset of winter or die off after the first hard frost, completing its life cycle.

    • Propogation time

      Spring-Early Summer

    • Propogation: Calibrachoa Minifamous Double Pinkmania, commonly referred to as Million Bells, is primarily propagated through vegetative cuttings rather than seeds, to ensure that the offspring plants are identical to the parent in terms of its double flowers and growth habits. The optimal time for taking cuttings for propagation is late winter or early spring, just before the new growth begins to emerge. To propagate, a gardener takes a 3 to 5-inch cutting from a healthy parent plant, ensuring that the cut is made just below a leaf node. The bottom leaves are removed, and the cutting is then dipped in a rooting hormone to enhance root development. It’s then placed in a moistened soilless potting mix, keeping the environmental humidity high until roots have formed, which generally takes about 2 to 3 weeks. Once the roots appear, the cuttings are transplanted into individual pots and allowed to grow on before being moved to their final location.
