flower prematurely (i.e., while still in the liner tray) during greenhouse production, requiring hand labor to remove inflorescences. Ethephon is a plant growth regulator (PGR) that is commonly applied as a foliar spray ( Whipker et al., 2011b ). When

, it is unclear how the covering of trees with NPN before, during, and after flowering for an extended period, thereby affecting tree growth and fruit development, impacts the deposition of foliar sprays that are applied and fruit production. This study

Flurprimidol was applied as a foliar spray (12.5, 25.0, 37.5, 50.0, or 62.5 mg·L-1) or as a substrate drench (0.015, 0.03, 0.06, 0.12, or 0.24 mg/pot a.i.) to determine its efficacy on `Blue Champion' exacum (Exacum affine). Flurprimidol substrate drenches were more consistent in controlling plant growth than foliar sprays. Substrate drenches of 0.03 mg/pot a.i. or foliar sprays ≥50 mg·L-1 resulted in smaller plant heights and diameters than the untreated control. With the use of flurprimidol, exacum growers have another plant growth regulator (PGR) available to control excessive growth.
