About their partnership, Belen Muñoz, Marketing Manager of Mystic Flowers shares:

"Our commercial relationship with Adomex began during the HPP floral show in 2016, where we first made contact. However, it wasn't until the beginning of 2017 that we finalized our alliance for the weekly supply of Gypsophila. This initial encounter at the floral show provided the foundation for our ongoing collaboration, marking the beginning of a productive partnership that has evolved and strengthened over time.

The partnership has flourished through shared knowledge, encompassing industry trends, market insights, technological advancements, and more. By leveraging our respective strengths and expertise, we've not only weathered difficult periods but also continually enhanced our capabilities. This collaborative spirit has allowed us to bring out the best in each other, ensuring our ongoing success and growth."

For its OrcaFloral label, Adomex imports the exceptionally large, pure white, and fast-growing variety, Xlence®, from its partners in Kenya and Ecuador. These countries have the perfect climate and altitude (2,250 and 2,500 meters respectively) needed to encourage good growth. Their growers let the young cuttings root on their farms and then plant them out in the field when they are about 12 weeks old. Harvesting the stems begins 14 weeks later. The plants will produce up to three harvests depending on the soil conditions.

After harvesting the bushy stems are taken to heated greenhouses where, partly through the addition of water and sugar, they achieve the desired stage of ripeness. The stems are then sorted carefully according to their weight and quality, cooled, packed in bunches, and air freighted to the Netherlands.

Here are a few extra things they'd like you to know about this variety and how you can use it, taking designs above and beyond.
