Eric Moor (at left in photo) of Sion decided
to join each other in their venture to supply
the North American market with
high-quality, rooted phalaenopsis young
plants. The plants will be six months old,
and grown in a community tray in a bark
mixture.
Sion Orchids is supplying CosMic
Plants with a pre-selected assortment of
the best phalaenopsis varieties available,
partly from their own breeding program
and partly from other breeders worldwide.

CosMic Plants Inc. is growing these
plants in its state-of-the-art greenhouse
facility in Beamsville, from flask to the
six-month-old plant stage.
The first young plants will be available
to commercial phalaenopsis growers
beginning in January of next year. The
program will then operate year-round
following this debut.

Steekelenburg at 905-562-9389. Those
