Anthura Minneapolis: a new addition to the pink color group

A constant focus on breeding Phalaenopsis is indispensable for the future of this product. Besides the development of new colors, patterns, and shapes, it is also important to improve the current range and adapt it to today’s requirements.

Selection criteria in breeding
Vigor is one of the selection criteria that is becoming increasingly important in the trend towards resistant cultivation and in the fight against pot worms. In some color groups, the standard of existing varieties is already so high that major improvements are difficult to achieve, but Anthura Minneapolis succeeded in significantly improving the vigor of the pink color group. 

Anthura Minneapolis
The large pink flowers with their contrasting red lip give Minneapolis a distinctive character in the pink color group. The plant grows vigorously and uniformly, resulting in a high percentage of plants with two spikes. The large flowers of over 9 cm are arranged on long spikes and have an average shelf life of over 17 weeks. 

Minneapolis is an all-rounder, in terms of both sales and usability. The plant is suitable for both growers, that focus on retail and the higher segment, and florists. A longer cultivation period also results in longer spikes with more flowers. Because of the long spikes and a plant height of 65 cm, this Phalaenopsis is also suitable for arches.
