Have you always been curious about our orchid nursery? Then we give you an insight into our nursery here. We take you on a journey through the growth process of our Kolibri Orchids. Because did you know that it takes about a year before these can be in your home? In our orchid nursery we fit during cultivation sustainable solutions in order to comply with sustainable cultivation with respect for nature.
Orchid nursery – journey of the Kolibri Orchids
Young orchids come to us as plugs. As you can see in the picture, these are orchids with short leaves and roots. With the help of a potting machine specially made for the orchid nursery, we pot these plugs in a breeding pot. Thanks to the potting machine, orchid bark is automatically added to the cultivation pot. As a result, the plugs are firm and ready to enter a new growth phase. From now on, the orchids will stay in a warm room for about 16 to 18 weeks, where leaves and roots will grow.
Next phase orchid nursery
After 16 to 18 weeks, the orchids are given more space by placing them in a cultivation vase. These cultivation vases are called PGCs and ensure that we make optimal use of the space in the orchid nursery. These PGCs also ensure that we save energy and fertilizers, that roots do not grow together and that leaves and branches of the orchid grow upwards. As soon as the orchids have been given a cultivation vase, they are returned to a warm section
After 6 weeks we move the orchids to a cold department in the orchid nursery. This triggers a frightening reaction in the orchids, causing them to produce flower spikes. As soon as the flower spikes are large enough, the orchids go to the stick section to erect them firmly and neatly.
The end of the journey in the orchid nursery is approaching
After sticking, we moved the orchids to a new section, which is called the bloom buffer. Here they will remain for another 3 to 14 days before they are ready for sale and transport.
Before the orchids leave our orchid nursery, we give them the Kolibri Orchids brand image. Here we give them a jar cover and label as shown in the image below. Each Kolibri Orchids belongs to one orchid family, which you can see on the pot cover.
Once an order from Kolibri Orchids is packed, our transport employees ensure that packed orders are transported to a customer, for example a florist or garden center, on time. If Kolibrifan you will probably recognize our products here.
