Ruud van der Hulst from Humako. The grower presented the innovative 'Green', a Saintpaulia which has been nominated for the Glazen Tulp, a Dutch prize for 'best novelty'.

Amigo Plant got themselves in the spotlight with their 'glow-in-the-dark' cactuses.

The Petticoat is a special cyclamen. Its leaves hang upside down, like a petticoat. The producer is Ten Have Plant, represented at the fair by Rob ten Have.

Gebr. Nederpelt is one of the forerunners in the area of potmums. They managed to produce regular potmum varieties in mini pot sizes. In the picture: Theo Nederpelt.

Michel Kester from Van Schie Potlelies. On the right you can see a double leaved, pollen free lily. This is a fairly new product and the company sees many opportunities in attracting the customer's attention.

VG Orchids presented their orchids in pots developed especially for the Christmas season. In the picture Leon Duijvesteijn holds the so-called 'mother with daughter' combination.

Dick Blom is a grower of Benettia, among others. "It's extremely difficult to produce this plant in a good way, but by now we are one of few growers who know how to do it properly."
