Pop Idols, with its small leaves, branches well, without shoots 'taking off' and develops short flower stems. The striking colours of a multitude of flowers on sturdy stems contrast nicely with the dark green leaves. Furthermore, this variety grows and flowers quickly, it simply 'pops’ out of the ground. Subject to the conditions, this variety grows faster than comparable varieties on the market. Besides, the dark green foliage does not yellow easily.
As said, Pop Idols branch well by nature. The use of growth regulators, once or maximally twice (per crop) improves the habit but is not really required for keeping the variety in check. Be sure not to use growth regulators in cold cultivation. If these pelargoniums are namely kept too compact in unheated production, the plants will develop 'too dense’ and there could be problems with fungi.

Furthermore, a normal climate and fertilization schedule suit this series. Preferably do not grow the plants too wet, this in view of the fact that the small leaves evaporate less than other large leaved varieties. Besides, these pelargoniums are also suitable to produce a quick second crop! When in mid April, the greenhouse is empty after the regular production period and the temperatures are a little higher, Pop Idols can be saleable in 6 to 7 weeks, provided that you stick the cuttings straight into the 6-pack.
