"From humble roots to 10 million strong, Monstera adansonii reigns as the plant sensation we're proud to grow!"

What an incredibly exciting journey we have had with our Monstera adansonii, also known as the Monster Qbliqua! We are absolutely thrilled to announce that we have now reached a significant milestone of 10,000,000 cuttings. It is truly a testament to our dedication and success as plant growers here at Floradesign in Thailand.

It all began in the fall of 2014 when we started a small test production on approximately 500 m2. We wanted to assess the longevity and gauge the response from retailers, and the results were outstanding. The Monstera adansonii proved to be not only visually stunning but also highly resilient, capturing the attention and admiration of everyone who encountered it.


Buoyed by these positive outcomes, we decided to expand and scale up our operations in 2015. Initially, our customers began producing Monstera adansonii in 12 cm pots, but as demand continued to soar, we introduced larger pot sizes, ranging from 14-17 cm. The growth of our production was remarkable, and soon our growers were even crafting Monstera adansonii poles in pots measuring 17, 21, and 24 cm. We also ventured into producing hanging plants in pots ranging from 14 to 24 cm.

It was a testament to the enduring popularity and versatility of the Monstera adansonii, and we couldn't be prouder. Throughout the years, we have nurtured and cultivated this incredible plant, and it has become a permanent fixture in the world of potted plants. The Monstera adansonii, our beloved "child," has captured the hearts of plant enthusiasts worldwide, and its appeal shows no signs of waning.


In addition to our remarkable achievement with the Monstera adansonii, we have been working tirelessly on expanding our repertoire. Currently, we have 17 different Monstera species in production and various testing phases. While each new variety brings its own charm and allure, we firmly believe that none will surpass the enduring popularity of the Monstera adansonii. It possesses a unique allure and captivating beauty that simply cannot be replicated. We did encounter a small naming mishap along the way.


Initially introduced as the Monster Qbliqua, we realized after a few years that this was incorrect. The proper name for our beloved plant should be Monstera adansonii. We promptly informed our customers about this, but the name Monster Qbliqua had already made its mark in the market. As a result, a portion of our plants continues to be sold under that name. Nevertheless, it hasn't diminished the significance of the Monstera adansonii and its rightful place in the plant world.


As we reflect on our journey, we are filled with gratitude for the opportunities and growth we have experienced. Our passion for the Monstera adansonii, our tireless efforts, and the trust of our customers have brought us to this remarkable milestone of 10,000,000 cuttings. It is a testament to the enduring popularity and demand for this magnificent plant.

We look forward to the future as we continue to nurture and expand our production. The Monstera adansonii holds a special place in our hearts, and we are excited to see how it will continue to captivate and inspire plant lovers around the world.

Sansevieria - an excellent investment in your health and well-being

Sansevieria, also known as the "snake plant" or "lady's tongues", is one of the most popular indoor plants in the world. In addition to their decorative value, these plants also have many health benefits, including the production of oxygen and reduction of nitrogen in the air.

Sansevieria is a succulent plant native to tropical regions of Africa and Asia. This plant is known for its elongated, pointed leaves that grow upright and range in color from dark green to light green. It has an elegant look and can be used in almost any interior.

But Sansevieria does much more than just elevate the aesthetic aspect. These plants are also great natural air filters. Sansevierias are able to convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, purifying the air in the home. In addition, they are also able to absorb harmful substances such as formaldehyde and benzene from the air, improving the air quality in the home.


But that's not all. Sansevieria is also able to absorb nitrogen from the air, making an important contribution to reducing nitrogen levels in the home. Nitrogen can cause respiratory irritation and can even be harmful to long-term health. These problems can be reduced by bringing Sansevieria into your home.

Sansevieria is also a relatively low-maintenance plant, making it an ideal choice for people who don't have much time or energy to care for plants. It can thrive in a variety of conditions and doesn't need a lot of water, making it perfect for beginners or busy households.

In short, the Sansevieria is not only a beautiful addition to any interior, but it is also an excellent investment in your health and well-being. Its ability to produce oxygen and absorb harmful substances from the air makes it a plant that makes an important contribution to a healthier and happier home.

Green Thailand

Thailand grows more plants, trees, vegetables and fruit than the Thai actually need. They are lucky, the Thai, not only the soil in their country is fertile, the climate and weather cooperate optimally to allow even people who have no green fingers to successfully grow their own plants and vegetables.

Of course for farmers, it is work and they have an economic necessity, but apart from rice or tea, for instance, they usually still grow for their own consumption. Not just herbs and chillies to further flavour the delicious Thai food, but also plants, just because they like them.

Even in Bangkok, where after all some 13 million people live pretty close together, you see that people still grow their own plants. Just walk into any old neighbourhood and wander the narrow backstreets. You are guaranteed to come across containers and pots of plants, and not infrequently someone lovingly nurturing and watering them. Many apartment buildings have communal gardens, where residents like to sit and which are well maintained.


Bangkok has at least 11 large parks, and many more smaller ones. People run, walk, and relax there. Those popular parks are very well maintained, you can see new flower and plant gardens there regularly. The Benjakitti park extension, for instance, has become a huge swamp garden designed by landscape architect Kotchakorn Voraakhom. Of particular note is Bang Krachao, also known as Bangkok's green lungs, where you can cycle and imagine yourself in the countryside among banana plants.

Large parks and gardens are not reserved for the Thai capital. Chiang Mai in northern Thailand, for instance, has the Queen Sirikit Botanic Garden, one of the most famous garden complexes in the country (if not the most famous). Not only can you walk around for hours and admire the plants, including lots of orchids; a lot of research is also done there, and there is a conservation centre for native Thai plants and other exotic species from the rest of the world.

Thailand is a green country. Somewhere between 30 and 35 per cent of the country is primary forest and rainforest. That means it is largely untouched by humans. They are purely animal habitat, and plants and trees can grow there to their heart's content. Like elsewhere in the world, the forest is under pressure, logging and burning parts, but even considering that, Thailand remains a green country.

In Thailand, too, they have long been aware of the importance of nature. About a third of the country consists of national parks (where most primary forest is found), wildlife sanctuaries, non-hunting areas and forest parks. There are more than 150 national parks, often still home to unique plant species, such as species of orchid, lotus and jasmine. It makes Thailand something of a paradise for gardeners.
