Start your TPIE Experience with the TPIE Road Show – It’s Education on the Go!
Join industry colleagues as TPIE Road Shows offers a creatively designed Production tour showcasing Florida’s nursery and landscape industry.
When: Tuesday, January 17, 2023
About the tour:
Spend the day with industry peers as TPIE showcases some of Apopka’s premier tropical foliage operations. The tour will leave from the Tampa Convention Center, 333 S Franklin St, Tampa, FL and you will spend the day learning from wholesale growers whose mission is to bring plants indoors.
Lunch and refreshments are included.
Stops will include:
• Costa Farms, a wholesale growing operation that discovers, develops, and grows plants for your home and life -- indoors and out. The company sprouted in 1961 when its founder, Jose Costa Sr., purchased 30 acres south of Miami to grow fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes in the winter and calamondin citrus in the summer. Now, one of the largest horticultural growers in the world, growing over 1,500 varieties of houseplants, attendees will tour their location in the heart of Apopka, FL
• Moss Hill Foliage Inc. Established in 1976, specializes in the wholesale production of indoor tropical foliage cellpack liners. All of their finished foliage is carefully germinated and cultivated from fresh seed harvested from all around the world.
• AG2TC, which produces and sells tissue culture liners on a wholesale level. Tissue culture allows the growth of nearly a limitless number of a specific plant. This is particularly useful for mass-production of plant with curative or desired properties.
Registration is required.
