FINCA EL RINCÓN
Finca El Rincón is an estate located just outside Guatemala City. For many years, this farm has been a coffee farm, a place where the family coffee tradition has continued. Up to now, coffee continues being the main farm product but since 1991, due to the coffee market difficulties, an ornamental plant private project started in this farm with the production of red and green maranta. Now, the greenhouses occupy more than 2 ha, and it’s still expanding, not only in size but in plant varieties quantity.
The plant production has specialized in five major families: marantas, ivies, peperomias, cissus, and scheffleras. Since our beginnings, quality has always been our most important concern; as a result, our plant quality is well known by many companies worldwide and we are planning not just to keep it but to improve it by a continuous work in improving our procedures and production methods. All this is done by taking into account not only our production optimization but also an improvement in our work and environmental responsibility.
Our quality is based not only in the farm altitude, climate and specific characteristics but also in the very careful way the production is done. To keep our production above the international and our own standards we use deep irrigation for watering and fertilizing, volcanic soil and pumice stone for the substrate and an organized and strict method for cutting and packing the plants.
Besides the tips, we are able to export rooted plants. Plants’ rooting is done in special greenhouses where the conditions are carefully taken care of. Temperature, moisture, humidity, soil, and every other condition essential for the plant rooting is optimized in order to produce an excellent rooted plant in the shortest time possible.
