In the intelligent greenhouses at Mengchong Modern Agricultural Technology Development Co., Ltd. in Jingang Village, Gaoyou City, Yangzhou., succulents in various shapes are neatly arranged on the steel frame. "We are the largest supplier of succulents in China. The Gaoyou base has a total of 180,000 square meters of greenhouses, and the annual output is about 50-60 million." The person in charge of the company, Wang Huaizhen, told reporters that through the introduction of new varieties and new technologies, the succulents produced by the base have good quality and amazing shapes. Now the succulents produced by Jingang have spread across the country relying on online sales.
