Greenhouse production has turned Zitácuaro in a national leader in the sales of poinsettias. Its production, in the 2012 season, was of 6 million plants, which generated quite a large income.

Zitácuaro, with around 80 hectares of greenhouses, gives priority to the production of flowers, mainly poinsettia, although geraniums and roses are also cultivated. This activity created 1,336 jobs in the region, according to data provided by Ramón Cano.
