Opti-flor is a leading orchid grower, but how does such a prestigious company make a difference in the market? OZ Planten went on a visit to discover the so-called ‘O-Factor.’
Larissa Valstar (Communication Manager) and Tim van Leeuwen (Marketing Manager) showed the impressive nursery. Tim: “We make a difference based on five pillars. The pillars ensure distinction in the range and a Five-star quality in excellent colors.”
The five pillars:
Top form range
Opti-flor develops its range at its own Research & Development location. Of the 1500 tested varieties, only 1 to 2% eventually end up in the range.
The unique range of varieties and colors is due to the constant search for new varieties. This happens all year round at breeders in the Netherlands and Asia.
With Opti-flor, the plants get more space and time to grow. You can see that in the quality. The orchids have an optimal bud and flower arrangement, relatively many roots, and perfect leaf stacking.
The cultivation specialists are constantly looking to improve the cultivation process in their work. These employees ultimately take care of growing the beautiful plants that leave the nursery.
Opti-flor sets the bar higher than the A1 specifications of Royal FloraHolland. The organization has drawn up its specifications regarding the number of buds, the length, and the number of branches. Only the highest bar is good enough.
