  • Energy balance

    Energy balance

    When it comes to plant growth, we tend to immediately think of all the biological and physiological processes that take place during the growth of the plant. The fact that plant growth is actually mostly about physics is sometimes overlooked. Growth depends to a large extent on the energy balance of the crop. »

  • Physiological abnormalities

    Physiological abnormalities

    Growers are increasingly demanding more from their crops: better quality, less labour, more yield. A prerequisite for this is optimum cultivation control. Having sufficient knowledge of how the plant functions, and thus of plant physiology, is essential for this. How do plants function and how do they react to changes in environmental factors? »

  • New experiences and insights in nutrition strategy

    New experiences and insights in nutrition strategy

    The optimum amount (and therefore the proportions between the elements) of nutrients in a solution differs according to each crop and often also its cultivation phase. Over the years, the ideal composition of elements in nutrient solutions changes due to new insights, practical experiences and the results of different studies. This article discusses new insights and experiences for each crop. »

  • Thrips Identification Card

    Thrips Identification Card

    Thrips can occur in the cultivation of Anthurium and Phalaenopsis. This card shows the characteristics of a number of thrips and the possible damage symptoms associated with them, supported by pictures. »

  • Thrips science in Anthurium and Phalaenopsis

    Thrips science in Anthurium and Phalaenopsis

    In this article, we want to draw attention to the different types of thrips that occur. The aim is to get to know this enemy better and to be able to react quicker and more effectively. »

  • The influence of pH on cultivation

    The influence of pH on cultivation

    In addition to carefully monitoring the nutrients and EC fed to the plants, we also pay a lot of attention to the pH of the feed water. Why do we do this? Why is the pH so important, and what is its influence on the plant?  »

  • Pythium

    Pythium

    In the cultivation of Anthurium and Phalaenopsis, several fungi and bacteria can cause damage to the crop and subsequent plant failure. In this article, we are focusing on the fungus Pythium (root rot). »

  • Plant activity for good plant health and growth

    Plant activity for good plant health and growth

    Before we can talk about plant activity, it is a good idea to explain what this means exactly. It sometimes seems to be a bit of a buzzword: the plants and the climate must be ‘active’. »

  • Humidity in the cultivation of Anthurium

    Humidity in the cultivation of Anthurium

    Besides temperature and light, humidity is the most important environmental factor for a plant to grow. In this article we discuss the importance of humidity and the influence that it has on the plant. »

  • Humidity in the cultivation of Phalaenopsis

    Humidity in the cultivation of Phalaenopsis

    Each company deals differently with humidity. In addition to the advantage of higher humidity for the photosynthesis process, more advantages can be mentioned that apply specifically to Phalaenopsis. »

  • Humidity in cultivation
