"We had an incredible turnout in the open house, and we had the honor of hosting the upper management of the most influential companies in the South American and US markets. As for the feedback we had on our new collection, we consistently see the importance of well-defined vibrant colors. Varieties such as Rose Shocking Blue, Rose Goldfinch, Rose Atlas, and Rose Fortune, were very popular due to their vigorous growth and long vase life."

Showcasing New Technology

Additionally, for the first time in Colombia, the company showcased its new NUF water filtration system. NUF is a cutting-edge filtration system that requires minimal energy to work, is compact, and most importantly, filters out nearly all biological solids in the water. Not only does this include large solids such as nematodes, but also filters out particles such as nematode eggs, fungus spores, bacteria such as Fusarium, agrobacterium, E. Coli, and most viruses.

The team is proud to serve Colombian Rose Growers in the pursuit of improved varieties, better, safer, and environmentally friendlier genetics and technology.
