Once the pinching has been carried out and you have good root growth in the 4 inch pot.
Sun Parasol® should be potted into a larger pot and must be grown up a support system such as a trellis.
The recommended pot size is from 6 up to 12 inches, best to use 3 plants per 12 inch pot and one in a 6 inch pot.
A 6 inch pot will require a trellis system of approx 18 inch tall and the 8 inch pot can have a 24 inch high trellis.
same potting compost can be used as for the initial potting but adding a slow release fertilizer should be added.
As the plant grows vigorously the shoots should be trained around the trellis as much as possible until the desired canopy has been reached, then pinch out the tips this will then encourage the flowering which should happen 4/5weeks after the final pinch.
The shoots will grow 6-8inches per week from April onwards.
