Colombia: "4,000 m2 of exhibition in Fusagasugá, the heart of live plant production"

According to Colviveros, Colombia has nearly 2,500 hectares of live plants production, and 75% of this production is concentrated in the department of Cundinamarca, mainly in the municipality of Fusagasugá. The municipality has a great variety of geographic and thermal floors that facilitate the production of flowering plants, foliage plants, cacti, succulents, ferns, palms, and forest species, and of course, products as highly demanded as anthuriums, bromeliads, and orchids.

Jairo Cadavid, president of Colviveros, pointed out that after the positive result achieved in the city of Pereira the previous year, the Colombian Trade Association is in the planning phase of the fourth edition of the Fair and the Professional Congress of Nurseries in Colombia, which will be held in Fusagasugá from October 19 to 21, 2022. “We are so excited to share the good news. The importance of holding the Fair and the Professional Nursery Congress in this region of Colombia is based on the fact that there are more than 800 production units of live plants, mainly ornamental”, added the Colviveros representative.
