They feel that the domestic production is increasing and improving, but not much spray are being grown.

Isabelle see a lot of potential for the future, especially if there will be direct flights from Kenya to China.

"The domestic production is improving and even thought the quality is not as high as that of the Ecuadorian roses, many still seem to choose for domestic due to the lower prices."
EQR is exporting to China for 2-3 years now and every year, their volumes have grown a bit. "They are looking for premium products", says Ana Lucia Andrade.

Christian Schröder and Dirk Mühlenweg of Knauf with Anouk Sijmonsma of PMA. According to Dirk, it is a challenging market as perlite is cheaper than peat moss.

Last year, they opened their own sales office with technical support in Nanjing . According to Manuel, for the Chinese growers, it is now time to think about automatic solutions. "In several areas of the country, lobar costs are rising, so automatic processes becomes more interesting. The TM 1010F is interesting for the Chinese grower as many parts that are now being done manually are automated. It prepares the pots so that the young plants can be put in manually. The only manual labor is putting in the young plants. It can processes 4,000 pots per hour."
A video being shown on how the TM 1010F of Mayer works.
The team of Ginegar.
Sander Smeding of Anthura promoting the smaller sized anthurium and phalaenopsis. "For gifts, often a large plant with the typical colors - like a big red anthurium- are given. Now, the Chinese consumer needs to learn to buy plants for own use and then, we see a shift in demand towards the smaller products and in different colors. Also for the phalaenopsis, we try to introduce a 2 to 3 branched plant. Currently, the phalaenopsis market consists of cheaper 1- stemmed products. Arrangements are then made with more products."
Liliana Rodriguez of Circasia sees also sees a high demand for new and dyed products. They are currently supplying the Chinese market mostly on event basis, but they are eager to supply them on a more regular basis.

They see an increasing demand for these type of flowers and due to the Colombian climate they can supply their flowers 52 weeks a year.
Jorge Ortega and Camila Silva of Matina Flowers. According to Jorge, the flower industry is not reflecting how the industry is growing. "We thought we would supply nearly a third of our production to this country, but so far it is not the case." In Jorge's opinion this might have several reason; language barriers. not enough knowledge of handling the flowers and the domestic production that is increasing and improving. Even though, it remains a market with a lot of potential and he therefore keeps investing in it.
