Anthurium Joli

Fair Flora score: ★★

Care

  • The Anthurium is a tropical plant. This means that the plant likes a temperature around twenty degrees.
  • It also means that the plant needs a lot of light, but no direct sun.
  • A tropical rain shower can be given in the form of lukewarm water twice a week.
  • Are the leaves turning yellow? Then the Anthurium has received too much water.
  • Too little water will inhibit growth and the plant will not get any new flowers.

Anthurium Joli

Anthurium can be originally found in Brazil, Equador, Peru, Colombia and Venezuela. In 1876, the French botanist Eduard André discovered the flower in Colombia and Ecuador. A busy bee that sir, because he also discovered orchids, bromeliads and various ara. He then took them all back to Europe. Thanks Eduard! Given its appearance and origin, Anthurium became a symbol of exotic beauty. The name is derived from the Greek words ‘anthos’ and ‘oura’ which means ‘flowering’ and ‘tail’. So very appropriate. Did you know that the flower of the Anthurium is the spike (“finger”) and not the brightly colored bract from which the spike protrudes? The bract is available in shiny white, red, pink, purple, orange, green and in even in several colors per leaf.

Our Fair Flora score

PostPlants has achieved 4 stars for all products. View the explanation below.

Status: achieved for all products

An up-to-date footprint calculation has been made of the product. This gives the grower insight into the environmental performance of the product. He uses this to make an impact reduction plan, with which he expects to achieve a reduction of at least 5% in two years. He is also transparent about the results of the calculation and the reduction plan.

A big step has been made a while ago by connecting to a local geothermal heat project. PostPlants has been actively seeking to reduce plastic for a long time. For example, the option is offered to deliver the plants in cardboard trays and tests are done with paper pots. PostPlants is also busy with the purchase of solar panels and is looking for substitutes for peat and fertilizer.

Status: achieved for all products

The grower is aware of his duty as an entrepreneur to treat his staff well and demands the same from his suppliers. He confirms this by signing the CSR statement.

The CSR statement has been signed by Henk Post. CSR has a strong position at PostPlants. In principle, all employees have a permanent contract, because relationships should also be sustainable. Only during the summer holidays is a temporary worker needed occasionally. In addition, PostPlants is a Fair Trade company, which meansm for example, that coffee, tea and Christmas packages are purchased with the Fair Trade seal. In this way PostPlants also wants to contribute something to developing countries.

Status: achieved for all products

The grower is aware that sustainability goes beyond what happens at his own nursery. That is why he only buys peat, paper and cardboard if it is of responsible origin. He is also actively involved in waste separation. Although the grower is actively reducing his impact, there will probably still be an impact that has not (yet) been eliminated. The CO2 impact that he still has is therefore compensated for the Fair Flora products.

The potting soil that we use has an RHP-certificate. Producers of RHP potting soils work with respect for the environment and are obliged to preserve a nature area after mining peat. The groundwater level is raised so that the original situation can restore. In this way, peat land will once again be created in the future and most importantly new nature areas will be added. Nevertheless, we are trying to replace the amount of peat for more sustainable alternatives. Our waste is of course separated. In addition, we have a press, which ensures that our cardboard and plastic is made as compact as possible, so that it takes up less space in transport. We then sell this waste so that it can be reused in new products. Our green waste is composted. All the paper and cardboard that we purchase is FSC certified. In addition, we purchase green electricity and we use sustainable heat from a local geothermal source. Unfortunately, this source has now been out of service for a while, which means we have to purchase residual heat from gas-fired CHPs.

Status: achieved for all products

A nursery has to do with its environment, such as nature, other companies and local residents. These should be relieved as much as possible or, if possible, even profit from the presence of a nursery. Staff members, suppliers and customers are also involved in this: they should try to avoid transport movements as much as possible and to plan for times that are favorable to local residents. Natural enemies should be used as much as possible to defend the plants in order to protect employees and the surrounding nature. Other crop protection should be of biological origin, with chemical agents only used in an emergency. The water cycle at the company should be completely closed: no water discharge.

Our company is located in a production area, so there are no local residents who can suffer from our transport movements. That is why we sometimes even load and unload in the middle of the night: we ensure that our transport contributes as little as possible to polluting traffic jams. We also do everything we can to minimize our burden on the environment and, where possible, even improve it:

  • Our water is 100% recycled and therefore there is no discharge. We use almost exclusively rainwater that we collect in the basin.
  • Outside, everything is equipped for birds, including trees with berries.
  • We are building a picking garden, so that staff without their own garden could still garden.
  • We do not use mouse poison: instead we have cats walking around.
  • We deliberately do not illuminate the plants, so that it stays dark at night and our species have been specially selected for such circumstances. We believe that this is ultimately much better for the plant at home: it is already used to the light in a house.
  • We only use biological pesticides. Only in an emergency do we intervene chemically. Of course we only do this with the safest means.
  • Thanks to these measures, we see many wild animals at our company, such as hedgehogs, pheasants and owls!
  • We sponsor a badminton tournament for our staff.
  • We sponsor 2 Westlandia indoor football teams.
  • We sponsor the Westlands sailing parade every year.

The production of many flowers and plants uses non-renewable resources such as natural gas, peat and fertilizer. For the fourth star, during the production of a plant, only renewable resources are used. For example, green electricity and green gas, a maximum of 25% peat and fertilizer.

We are working very hard on this. Of course we use green electricity and, when the geothermal heat source works again, also no gas. We still use a potting soil mixture with peat, but have been investigating for a while to limit this as much as possible. The same applies to the fertilizer, which we also want to eliminate. A major focus for us is banning plastic, among other things by replacing it with paper and cardboard.
