Frank de Greef, Fleurizon:

'Aloe vera farms keep increasing production'

Aloe vera is a plant which has been widely spread all over the world, in cultivation and now also in nature. The plant is known for its qualities for treating sunburn and also at the moment Aloe vera is used in drinks. Fleurizon is selling cuttings all over the world for many years now and owner Frank de Greef sees the market for this product increasing.

Aloe Vera field.

Aloe vera (also known as Aloe barbadensis) is produced in very large farms, explains de Greef. "These farms are typically specialized for leaf production and make gel out of the harvested leaves. That gel is then used for cosmetics or drinks", he says. 

How Fleurizon sends the cuttings.

Fleurizon is producing cuttings on specialized farms. "This is a very specialized job and we have the experience, only then you get top quality cuttings. Our farms are increasing production all the time."

Plants with cuttings on the field.

Cuttings are sold in different sizes, but 3”, 4” and 5” is what Fleurizon sells most. They are planted in 9 cm (3”) pots up to 3 liter (1 gallon) pots.
