Spain: Plantal ramps up high-tech Mandevilla Bella cuttings production

Plantal Producciones has expanded their company by 1 hectare. In total the company, located in Almeria, Spain, has an acreage of 15 hectares. Plantal Producciones grows mother plants of Kientzler’s variety Mandevilla Bella. “The expansion is the result of growing demand”, Lars van Steekelenburg explains.

Lars van Steekelenburg at the Royal FloraHolland Seasonal Trade Fair 2018 in Naaldwijk earlier this month.

In a new high-tech greenhouse cuttings will be produced. “In that process we need high humidity, which improves the rooting.” The greenhouse can be heated by warm water. A double screen regulates the light and temperature. An automatic watering system affords the plants purified water. Ozone technology is being installed as well.

The greenhouse and the installations are built by a Spanish company, the cultivation table system was supplied by Dutch company HT Verboom. “We have chosen our suppliers not only by the prices they offer but also based on experience, references and trust.”

Perfect Mediterranean plant
For breeding, the Spanish climate is excellent. When annual plants are fully grown, they can stand perfectly in the Northern European countries like Germany and the Netherlands.

“It is the perfect Mediterranean plant for Northern Europe. During the spring and summer they constantly sprout new flowers. A Danish customer told me that his Mandevilla Bella flourished from April till the first night frost in November. When placed inside in a conservatory or greenhouse they bloom even longer. As long as the temperature stays above 15 degrees Celsius and the plant gets enough sunlight, the customer can enjoy it for a long time.”

Plantal Producciones started in 2001. Besides different varieties of Mandevilla (Dipladenia) they also grow Adenium and Passiflora.

“With the new greenhouse we have enough space to meet demand. It is not our goal to expand and get big, we think it is most important that we can provide excellent material to our customers. In the future we will be experimenting with new varieties from Kientzler Young Plants so that we can offer them a wider range of plants.”

I feel so blessed and fulfilled. I've been reluctant in applying for a loan i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got a loan from Progresive Loan INC. & we both confirmed it and i also went ahead to apply, today am a proud owner of my company and making money for my family and a happy mom. Well i'm Annie Joe by name from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. As a single mom with three kids it was hard to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was referred by my co-worker to a godsent lender advertising to give a loan at 2% interest rate. I sent them a mail using their official email address ( and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved, and I was directed to the Bank site where I withdrawed my loan directly to my account. To cut the story short am proud of my hair stylist company and promise to testify to the world how my life was transformed.. If you are in need of any kind of loan, i advise you contact Progresive Loan INC and be financially lifted Email: OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565
