LKP Plants is a nursery with a proud history and a great future. We have a solid vision regarding sustainable development, whilst maintaining our quality at the highest level. Efficiency and innovation are vital at LKP Plants. As one of the largest Bromeliad cultivators, we have the entire growing process under control in-house, right down to the final assembly of our products. This means we are able to maximise efficiency during production, which guarantees the finest quality. Of course we always create room for our clients and listen to their desires, which enables us to deliver a made-to-measure product. With our years of experience, LKP Plants has proven over time to be a premium supplier of superior Bromeliads. With our in-house knowledge and skills we always focus on quality and tailor-made solutions, whilst maintaining a sustainable view of the future.
Bromeliads are propagated in two ways; from seed and in the lab. In both instances after about a year this process results in a tiny plant, which will be grown further at specialist breeding companies.
Once the plants have reached a height of around 5 cm, they arrive in our nursery as young plants. They are planted in paper pots where they can grow for a few more months. Regular selection means we supply uniform lots to companies where our plants are grown further. The plants, which by this point have reached between 20-25 cm in height, are placed in their final pots and returned to the nursery to mature. After a few months, robots pick up the plants and pass them under a camera. In the next step, three different robots place the plants in containers grouped according to size. After some more time in the greenhouses, the plants are given a growth treatment; 10 to 16 weeks after that the plants in their pots are ready to be sold. They are passed under a camera for a seventh time in the work space before the uniform lots are ready for delivery. The Bromeliad takes almost three years to reach your living room.
