Jairo Cadavid, president of Colviveros, says the Association seeks to promote the consumption of ornamental plants in the local market, consider the export path, and generate more formal employment in the Colombian countryside. The number of nurseries and ornamental producers is estimated at 5,000 in Colombia, a country blessed with different micro-climates and thermal floors for the production of plants, flowers and foliage.
