The 100-day flowering guarantee for Kalanchoë Garden is possible after independent research in 2021 on more than 25 varieties, in which the plants were transported and tested throughout the chain. New research will be carried out annually to validate the claim.
The research was carried out for flowering (including repeat flowering) plants of Kalanchoë Garden in patio pots for use in Western Europe in the period from mid-June to the end of September.
The professional research method is presented annually to professionals (exporters and trade). The Kalanchoë Garden will be identifiable with the special ‘100days flowering-label'.
To guarantee product quality, participating growers and plant breeders are actively involved in raising awareness of this aspect of Kalanchoë. The annual flowering test is also repeated with the products of the various growers. Based on the results, the breeders are able to improve their genetics and prevent underperforming varieties from coming onto the market.
The Royal FloraHolland Product Committee (FPC) Kalanchoë monitors the process and the test method.
