Grower Tips for Whirlwind
-Requires high light in production.
-Needs 200 ppm fertilizer.
-Prefers warmer production temperatures.

Australian plants prefer to have little or no Phosphorous added. This plant is sensitive to cold temperatures but makes a great spring and summer sales item. Avoid getting foliage wet under low light, high pH, and cool conditions.

Whirlwind varieties are more compact and better branched than other Scaevola varieties.
