Outlook and Opportunities in the Tropical & Foliage Market
Many call the current boom in foliage a redux of the first houseplant boom of the 1970s. But this boom has something the last one didn’t: social media! And plant parents! How long will the good times last this time around for these lush and lovely tropical plants? Moderator Chris Beytes of GrowerTalks/Green Profit and the newsletter Acres Online will pick the brains of four experts in the field to find out as much as possible about the trends, opportunities, challenges and outlook for the tropical plant and foliage markets. Topics will include outdoor patio plants and indoor blooming plants. And he’ll be sure to cover the current craze over aroids, some of which are selling online for thousands of dollars for a single rooted cutting!
