Grow-Tech LLC
Grow-Tech has launched the ZenPlug for easy transplanting of tissue culture starts and pre-rooted cuttings. The open plug shape allows for the precise and rapid placement of large callused plants, such as orchids and trees in the center of the plug. With a single-hand motion, the ZenPlug can be easily folded around fragile roots. The plug’s unique, multi-surfaced interior holds roots firmly but gently in place, providing young plants with the optimal environment for root growth. 

Suntory Flowers Ltd.
Suntory Flowers is rolling out a whole new generation of Surdiva Scaevolas. Varieties are two weeks earlier, more densely branched and compact, and offer richer colors and superior floral coverage. Three new colors include Light Blue, Blue Violet (pictured) and Fashion Pink (pictured). They match the habit and timing of Surdiva Improved White. The three older varieties with a more horizontal habit have been renamed Classic Blue, Classic Light Blue and Classic Pink to differentiate from the new genetics. 

Proven Winners LLC

Superbells Tropical Sunrise replaces Tequila Sunrise in Proven Winners’ lineup this year. This is one of very few calibrachoa with a splashed color pattern and it outranks others Proven Winners has seen in stability. You won’t find solid colored flowers mixed in with this striped beauty. Each large sized flower is splashed with orange, pink and coral tones, and better branching results in fantastic flower coverage. Tropical Sunrise begins to bloom in Week 11 and continues to flower into fall without deadheading. It’s been screened specifically for resistance to thielaviopsis and can be grown in combination with other medium-vigor varieties. 

Premier Tech Horticulture
When seeking the ideal balance between air porosity, drainage capacity and water retention, PRO-MIX HPCC BIOFUNGICIDE + MYCORRHIZAE is the solution growers select. With unique chunk coir reducing soil compaction and carefully selected peat moss, this formulation provides qualities promoting growth and offering a delicate, well-calculated control over the root zone. PRO-MIX HPCC BIOFUNGICIDE + MYCORRHIZAE provides growers what they need to optimize the quality of their hanging baskets, large containers and long-term crops.

PanAmerican Seed

Megawatt is a super-uniform and programmable begonia that glows with premium, easy color in landscapes, baskets and big tubs from spring through fall. Its sturdy stems hold flowers above the foliage for superior show. Plug into huge growing power with Megawatt Pink Bronze Leaf (pictured)—a unique color for this large begonia class and a must-have retail color. The bronze leaf varieties finish five to 15 days faster than comparable products. Available in four varieties for 2017 retail sales.  

Nexus Greenhouse Systems
Innovative Nexus Glide Vent doubles ventilation. The Glide uses durable Nexus technology to slide open on specially designed tracks. The slide-down roof vent almost doubles the ventilation over a standard roof vent. The Glide opens from the ridge purlin down. A double glide would create almost 16 ft. of roof ventilation. GT
