How To Grow Snapdragons From Seeds

Germination

  • Stage 1:
  • Time of radical emergence.
  • Use a well-drained, disease-free seedling medium with a pH of 5.5 to 5.8
  • Germination: 64 to 68F (18 to 20C)
  • Timing: 4 to 8 days
  • Soil temperature: 64 to 68F (18 to 20C)
  • Moisture: Medium
  • Light: Not required
  • Cover: Lightly with vermiculite

Plug Production

  • Stage 2:
  • Stem and cotyledons emerge.
  • Timing: 7 to 14 days
  • Soil temperature: 65 to 70F (18 to 21C)
  • Moisture: Reduce moisture levels once radicle emergence occurs. Allow the soil to dry out slightly before watering. Irrigate early in the day so that foliage is dry by nightfall.
  • Light: 450 to 1,500 f.c.
  • Fertilizer: 50 to 75 ppm N from 14-0-14 or calcium/ potassium nitrate feed once per week when cotyledons are fully expanded. Alternate feed with clear water. Maintain water alkalinity at 60-100 ppm and ammonium levels at less than 10 ppm.
  • Soil pH: 5.5 to 5.8

Stage 3:

Growth and development of true leaves.
  • Timing: 14 days
  • Soil temperature: 62 to 65F (17 to 18C)
  • Moisture: To promote root growth and control shoot growth, allow the soil to dry between irrigations, but avoid wilting.
  • Light: 1,000 to 2,500 f.c.
  • Fertilizer: 100 to 150 ppm of 20-10-20 alternating with 14-0-14 or other calcium/potassium nitrate fertilizer, every two or three irrigations. Supplement with magnesium one to two times during this stage using magnesuium sulfate (16 oz./100 gal.) or magnesium nitrate. Do not mix magnesium sulfate with calcium nitrate as precipitate will form.
  • Soil pH: 5.5 to 5.8

Stage 4:

Plants are ready for transplanting.
  • Timing: 7 days
  • Soil temperature: 60 to 62F (16 to 19C)
  • Moisture: Allow soil to dry thoroughly between irrigations, but avoid wilting.
  • Light: 1,000 to 2,500 f.c.
  • Fertilizer: 100 to 150 ppm N from 14-0-14 or calcium/ potassium nitrate feed as needed. Avoid ammonium fertilizers in Stage 4.
  • Soil pH: 5.5 to 5.8

Growing On to Finish-In Greenhouse or Outdoors

Use a well-drained disease-free soil less medium with a medium initial nutrient charge and a pH of 5.5 to 6.2.
  • Temperature: 45 to 55F (10 to 13C) nights and 55 to 70F (13 to 22C) days. Avoid night temperatures above 55F (13C) as this will reduce stem strength.
  • The best time to grow Snapdragons is Autumn through early Spring, when cooler growing conditions can be maintained.
  • Moisture: Allow soil to dry slightly between waterings, but avoid wilting.
  • Light: Keep light levels as high as possible while maintaining recommended temperature.
  • Fertilizer: Every other irrigation, apply 150 ppm N from 15-0-15, alternating with 20-10-20. Alternate feed with clear water.
  • Soil pH: 5.5 to 6.2

Controlling Height:

Once plants are rooted to the sides of the containers they can be allowed to dry slightly prior to irrigation.
Withhold fertilizer, especially phosphorous and ammonium-form N.
Snapdragons are responsive to day/night temperature differential (DIF) and are shorter with a negative DIF.
