At the end of March, Dümmen Orange and Bejafleur jointly introduced the Picalla plant concept. Following this, a scratch competition was organized, which was won by Marco Guyt of Grotex International. Marco won a city trip for two to Barcelona with a visit to the Picasso Museum. "I was already excited about the Picalla plant concept, and now even more so with this beautiful artistic trip," he said.

Picalla is a plant concept for small Calla plants (8 cm). The market for small pot sizes has been booming in recent years. However, growing small Calla plants is not easy. Bejafleur has specialised in this in recent years.
The Picalla plant concept is expected to be available again from week 10 of next year. Orders can already be placed now. For more information, visit www.picalla.com.
