Río de Luna (Moon River)

Jhonana Gracia:

"Río de Luna is an allusion to the bright, white color of the flowers which are capable of illuminating any space, giving a magical air. For its creation, we suspended a window frame in an empty room and through it, the Grandtastic spilled through as if it were nature beautifully invading a space and creating a surreal scene extracted from a dream."



Spring Dreams


"In the other artistic exploration, we followed the idea of painting a picture. But in this case, we replaced the oil paints with Grandtastic flowers that dyed the raw canvas white, filling it with life and light, and creating a three-dimensional composition in which nature seems to open up from the center; a work that we called Spring Dreams."



Growing in South Africa, Africa, and Europe

Gypsophila Grandtastic feels at home all in many places and climates, growing well at low and high altitudes. It's a modern variety bred especially to meet the demand set by the growers to grow with limited use of energy for lighting. With this highly productive variety, Selecta One aims for South American growers in Colombia and Ecuador, African countries like Kenya, and southern European countries such as Portugal.
