    Silver lining in the approach to Tobacco Thrips

    Thrips causes considerable damage to plants and are difficult to control. Therefore, it is important to be alert for signs of Tobacco thrips so that prompt action can be taken. This edition focuses on the approach to Tobacco thrips (Thrips parvispinus). »

    A more effective approach to thrips through proper identification

    Identifying thrips is difficult, because both the different thrips species and the larvae are often very similar. A diagnosis is difficult, sometimes insufficiently reliable and often takes (too) long. Then the question arose for us: 'How can we do this faster and better?' We started to work on this question. »

    Scouting a difficult newcomer: tobacco thrips

    It is important to be alert to signals of tobacco thrips, so that early intervention can be taken. In this article we pay attention to identifying and scouting tobacco thrips. »

    Control and direction of Anthurium cut flower crops

    Afhankelijk van de lengtegroei en de stevigheid van het snijanthurium- gewas zal dit omvallen na twee tot vier jaar telen. Het is belangrijk dit proces van omvallen te begeleiden om ook de jaren na het omvallen van het gewas, een optimale groei en productie te waarborgen. »

    Substrate Phalaenopsis

    ‘Airy substrates' are generally used for the cultivation of Phalaenopsis. Substrates can contain a variety of raw materials. The crop and your ultimate needs and objectives are what determine which elements and their corresponding properties are important for the substrate to be used. »

  • Substrate Anthurium cut flowers

    Substrate Anthurium cut flowers

    Anthurium cultivation generally involves the use of what are known as ‘airy substrates’. These are substrates that contain a lot of air, even in humid conditions. The quality of a plant depends on the correct use of the right substrate with the right properties. Read more about the substrate of Anthurium cut flowers. »

    Substrate Anthurium pot plants

    The quality of a plant depends on the correct use of the right substrate with the right properties. One substrate is not the same as another: not only is there a lot involved in developing the composition, but consistent production and the correct method of use are important aspects when using substrates. Read all about substrate of Anthurium pot plants. »

  • Threat monitoring

    Threat monitoring

    In the cultivation of both Anthurium and Phalaenopsis, it is important to continuously monitor the cultivation. Growers strive to keep cultivation conditions constant throughout the year. Unfortunately, they have to deal with many different external influences. Besides insects, fungi and bacteria, inaccuracies in pH/EC, nutrient composition, starting water, etc. can have a major impact on the crop. »

  • Thrips (in general)

    Thrips (in general)

    Thrips are a growing problem in the cultivation of Anthuriums and Phalaenopsis. Whereas thrips were rare in Phalaenopsis a few years ago, they have become increasingly common in recent years. There is an increasing number of exotic thrips species, which require a specialist approach. The variety of chemical agents, on the other hand, is increasingly limited. »

  • Thrips in Phalaenopsis

    Thrips in Phalaenopsis

    Thrips can be divided into two groups: leaf thrips and flower thrips. The leaf thrips only live on plant juices, while the flower thrips can also live on pollen. »

  • Thrips in Anthurium

    Thrips in Anthurium

    Worldwide, we are seeing a significant increase in thrips pressure in both cut flowers and pot Anthurium. In cut Anthurium, thrips can establish themselves in the crop and return every year to more or less the same places. This is often the case with thrips that are present on the leaves. »
