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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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).

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’.

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.

Healthy irrigation water is of vital importance for healthy cultivation and a sound business. Fungal or bacterial infection in the plant, growth stagnation or impaired root growth is increasingly linked to irrigation with unhealthy (contaminated) water.

Healthy roots are the basis of a healthy plant. It is of the utmost importance to ensure that the root system stays healthy.

The greenhouse climate is one of the main (if not the main) growth factor for the plant. Therefore, it is worth optimizing the greenhouse climate to further enhance production.

In the cultivation of Phalaenopsis and Anthurium there are several diseases for which a high hygiëne level is of great importance for prevention. There are several sources of infection and hygiëne measures which are explained in this article.

Before more light is allowed into the greenhouse, it is useful to first bear in mind the preliminary conditions that have been established. In this article the four main preconditions are described and some cultivation-oriented recommendations are given.

When you consider chalking, it is important to determine which goals you want to achieve, such as: – avoiding an excessive greenhouse temperature; – avoiding the entrance of too much light (caused by insufficient sun shading); – preventing uneven light distribution, the so-called ‘light strips’. Greenhouse temperature Temperature peaks occur due to a lack of […]
