Our greenhouses produce many different colours and varieties of Bromeliads.
The Ananas is the best-known variety of Bromeliad in our collection, but we also produce Vrieseas, Guzmanias, Aechmeas and also Tillandsias.
These plants originate from the tropical rainforests of the middle and southern South Americas.
Species that are found in these regions have been used for propagation by enthusiast hobbyists and specialists. These specialists are regularly visited by Bjorn Bunnik in order to exchange information about consumer demands and to assess plants for their quality, colour, volume and growing habits.
Our ambition to constantly improve and innovate every year ensures that we test many new varieties; less than 2% ultimately passes all of the tests we impose for selection.
As a company we have unlimited levels of patience and maintain a long-term vision, because from the time of first selection until the final production program, the complete process takes a minimum of 10 years.
Most of our Bromeliads are propagated by in-vitro techniques in specialised laboratories.
The new growth or ‘small clumps’ of Bromeliads are divided off into ‘singles’, replanted and sorted.
When these young plants are large enough, they are repotted.
To be able to supply uniform and high quality products all year round, the plants are sorted several times during cultivation and planted into larger pots.
To bring a Bromeliad into flower, we use the natural product Ethylene. By determining which plants have undergone this treatment, and taking into account market demands, we are able to plan our
Our production is market-driven and every customer has their own specific needs and requirements. We pack our products complete with protection, external pots, labels etc. so they are all individually, ready-made retail items.
Our marketing team enjoys this dynamic and aims to have a more than satisfied customer for every single plant.
Sales and marketing of our beautiful plants is exclusively contracted out to the Bromeliad Specialist Association. This is a professional franchise formula that centrally manages marketing, communications, product development and sales for various Bromeliad nurseries.

Helaas kunnen onze planten een groot deel van de Europese consumenten niet bereiken. Daarom hebben wij voor een aantal planten een goede nieuwe bestemming gevonden.
Vandaag waren wij aanwezig op het beroepenfeest On Stage om scholieren te enthousiasmeren voor ons werk! 17 maart mogen wij een leuke club scholieren verwelkomen op ons bedrijf tijdens de doe-dag!
Leuk! De ananas🍍in de spotlight bij Waterdrinker! 😀
We can rarely offer available vacancies.
Our team is currently complete and we have no immediate vacancies. However, if you dream about a future in greenhouses full of tropical Bromeliads, we would still love to hear from you!
