Robert Pettorini, Fleurizon:

Stage 3 tissue culture, "Easier than you think"

In today's ever-changing world, growers must always consider how they can differentiate themselves from their competition. This can mean looking for the most current innovations and the rarest, most unique varieties to bring to market. One way to kill two birds with one stone is to look to the international market for stage 3 tissue culture, says Robert Pettorini Customer Service Representative at Fleurizon. "This is where you'll find the longest lists of hard-to-find, high-in-demand houseplants driving the market."

"Now, before you say or even think tissue culture isn't for me, it's too hard or costs too much, hear me out. It is not as complex as you might think. Also known as micro-propagation, the tissue culture process is a technique that can help you grow uniform plants in quick succession. The tissue culture process is now more commonly used among many growers. It's not just for lab coat-wearing, state-of-the-art companies anymore."

According to Pettorini, the main pathways to stage 3 success are likely cultural practices you're already familiar with. "You need to receive and keep the stage 3 cuttings in a completely sterile growing area by thoroughly washing and sanitizing all trays and growing spaces. The growing area should be kept at the optimum temperature for the tissue culture to flourish. You need to provide sufficient lighting and the correct nutrients. Being mindful of these conditions and paying attention to detail will go a long way to ensure success."

The plant rarities that can be had in the plant world via the international stage 3 tissue culture market are seemingly never-ending. Although the idea of growing from tissue culture may be daunting from the outset, the rewards are always high, he continues. "Stage 3 TC opens the door more quickly to the high-end houseplant market and other trending, in-demand plants. To name a few extremely popular varieties available through stage 3, consider Philodendron White Princess, Philodendron Pink Princess, and many others."

These varieties and many more tangibly different and new plant varieties through stage 3 TC can be provided by Fleurizon International. "We work with laboratories across the globe to import these sought-after varieties and deliver them to your doorstep. The cuttings are packaged in sterile containers in agar-agar, which acts as a stability agent at the bottom of the container to hold the tissue cuttings in place. However, the agar is much more than just a base for the material. It also contains all the nutrients that the tissues need to ensure safe travel from the laboratory to its' destination. They ensure the tissues will be just as fresh as the day they were packaged and shipped to your facility. Having the most highly sought-after new introductions available is how you will outshine your competition."
