New Kontos Miticide/Insecticide

Rosemania is proud to announce the introduction of Kontos InsecticideMiticide to the greenhouse and nursery markets. Kontos is a new systemic insecticide that is both xylem and phloem active, meaning the active ingredient moves upward and downward in treated plants. Kontos can be applied as a foliar spray or drench and controls a number of major sucking insect and mite pests, including aphids, leafhoppers, mealybugs, psyllids, spider mites, and whiteflies. Kontos, with active ingredient spirotetramat, is the first systemic insecticide with activity on spider mites. Kontos provides a rotational tool for those growers who have been using neonicotinoid drenches and want to change things up. It's a great alternative."

Banner Maxx - $69.99 (pint)

Tired of spraying every week? Banner Maxx has become our best selling preventative fungicide and for good reason.. it is very effective with a 14 day spray interval. For best results, alternate with Compass. If you need a more economical alternative, spray your first rotation with Banner Maxx mixed with Pentathlon DF or Mancozeb. After 14 days, use Banner Maxx alone and continue to repeat this process throughout the growing season. Usage is 1/3 2/3 teaspoon/gallon.

$69.99 (new lower price)

Floramite SC - $289.99 (quart)

Now this fantastic miticide/ovicide is available in a soluble concentrate. Floramite SC is a selective miticide that provides outstanding control of mite pests on ornamental plants. Floramite produces quick knockdown through contact activity and long residual control of more than 21 days. It is effective on a variety of species of mites and all life stages of Tetranychidus spider mites. (Yes, this means it kills the eggs!) And because of its novel mode of action and selective nature, Usage is 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of spray. This is one of the best on the market!

$199.95 per 250 ml bottle Mancozeb & Pentathlon

Mancozeb and Pentathlon contain the only chemical we know to kill the blackspot spore. If you already have the blackspot fungus, your regular preventative like Banner Maxx, Cleary's, Funginex, Immunox, or Compass won't be effective. Mix Mancozeb or Pentathlon at a rate of 1 tablespoon per gallon of spray material. Spray every three days for three or four spray intervals and your blackspot should be under control. At that time you can go back to your regular preventative program. Mancozeb comes as an easyto-dissolve liquid. Pentathlon DF is more practically priced as a powder for large gardens. Pentathlon LF ( liquid formula) is intended for large gardens or commercial growers.

Conserve SC - $149.99 (quart)

Recent studies on thrip control have revealed the effectiveness of Conserve, a spinosad insecticide. Spinosad is derived from a soil dwelling bacteria. Studies at Ohio State University found that Conserve was significantly better than Orthene at controlling thrips while retaining high numbers of beneficial insects. Conserve also works great for control of bud worms, bag worms, fall webworms, gypsy moth, and spruce budworms. Usage is1/3 teaspoon per gallon)

Orthene 97%

We are happy to offer Orthene 97% labeled for ornamentals. Orthene 97% comes in a easily dissolvable granule instead of a fine powder, giving all the benefits of Orthene 75%, without the offensive odor. In our opinion, this also makes for a safer product as dust seems to be greatly reduced. Orthene has a proven track record as a reliable pesticide for aphids, thrips and other common insects. With the new higher concentration of active ingredient, it only requires 3/4 tsp. per gallon of spray solution.

Nitril Disposable Gloves

When it comes to hand protection from pesticides, the best glove money can buy is constructed of Nitril. Here is a quote from the Virginia Tech Pesticide Program. "You should never handle a pesticide without using a pair of unlined chemical resistant gloves....Look for gloves made of nitrile or neoprene....". Our Nitril disposable gloves make it especially easy to handle measuring-spoons during mixing where the chemicals are at their most concentrated form. A box of 100 gloves will last most users 2 years.

Chrysal Pro 2

For years we have been recommending the use of Chrysal Pro 1 (RVB) with the Chrysal "Clear" Sachets or Liquid. The reason is this: RVB (Pro 1) is a hydration solution. It allows the cut flowers to "drink" maximum water keeping stems and petals turgid (stiff). This promotes "holding" and eliminates the "bent neck syndrome". The Chrysal "Clear" product contains sugars specially designed for feeding roses and other cut flowers. Now we are now proud to introduce Chrysal Professional 2 the perfect combination of RVB and Chrysal Clear for exhibitors or anyone who wants long-lasting flowers. Keeps the water clean, clear and odorless. Usage is 2 teaspoons per quart. A gallon concentrate will make 96 gallons of finished product. (A handy pump is sold separately or in combination with each gallon.)

Customers Note: Please DO NOT spray fungicides, insecticides, or miticides without proper protective gear. This includes a respirator, goggles and chemical resistant gloves at a minimum. You should also take proper precaution to cover your arms and legs with either long pants and long sleeve shirt, or with a chemical resistant suit such as Tyvek.

Eagle 20 EW (pint)

For years, rosarians have preferred the chemical, "systhane," as the product of choice for killing and preventing powdery mildew. Unfortunately, the product was previously packaged only in a powder form and for a hefty price of more than $125. Now Rosemania has Systhane in a new liquid formula called Eagle 20EW. Usage is only 1/3 to 2/3 of one teaspoon per gallon. At $69.99 per pint, this product is now a bargain and an obvious choice to eliminate and prevent powdery mildew.

Plant Success - Mycorrhizae

Mycorrhizal fungi increase the surface absorbing area of roots 10 to 1,000 times, thereby greatly improving the ability of the plants to use the soil resources. Estimates of amounts of mycorrhizal filaments present in soil associated with plants are astonishing. Several miles of fungal filaments can be present in less than a thimbleful of soil. But mycorrhizal fungi increase nutrient uptake not only by increasing the surface absorbing area of roots. Mycorrhizal fungi release powerful chemicals into the soil that dissolve hard-to-capture nutrients, such as phosphorous, iron and other"tightly bound" soil nutrients. This extraction process is particularly important in plant nutrition and explains why nonmycorrhizal plants require high levels of fertility to maintain their health.

Liquid Karma

Liquid Karma contains a full complement of metabolically active organic compounds not found in regular plant foods or supplements. These unique compounds are absorbed immediately and act as regulatory signals, activators or catalysts to produce synchronized and accelerated growth under all conditions. Liquid Karma functions as a growth engine because its high metabolic activity produces a large amount of energy which is immediately transformed to growth. Usage is from 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon per gallon. Liquid Karma is not a fertilizer and should be used in addition to your regular fertilizing program.

Quart-$32.99 Gallon-$75.00 Nature's Nog

For years we have known the benefit of seaweed and humates. Nature's NOG brings together these two most effective, naturally occurring plant growth stimulants know to soil science. The result is a carefully balanced formulation, which is more effective as a combination of ingredients than any of its parts alone. Nature's NOG is a totally organic, natural compound designed to enhance root formation, increase vascular strength, promote green color, and reduce stress on ornamental and agricultural plants. Nature's NOG is environmentally safe and completely non-toxic to humans, animals and fish. So why does it work? Seaweed provides the growth hormones while humate provides the soil conditioners and stimulates microbial activity. I like to use this product in my regular preventative spray program. The first time you use Nature's NOG, add 2 oz. of product per gallon of spray solution. On all subsequent treatments, use 1 oz. per gallon.

Benefits of mycorrhizae:

Improved nutrient and water uptake ; Improved root growth ; Improved plant growth and yield ; Reduced transplant shock ; Reduced drought stress.
