What to expect from OptiBoost treated flowers?

Have a look at the video below to understand how the technology works and what impact it has on the entire flower industry.

The perfect symbiosis of technologies

The OptiBoost treatment is both a technology and a method, which comes to us in the shape of a machine.

We use vacuum infusion to impregnate the cut flowers with a nutrient solution. But not just any nutrient solution – we have developed a functionalized nutrient solution based on the third generation of nanotechnology. 

Vacuum enables the solution to impregnate as efficiently as possible, the solution itself is optimized to deliver the highest possible amount of nutrients for the flower.

This process takes place in a treatment chamber controlled by the main unit. A treatment only takes 36 seconds, the basic system can manage 40 000 roses/h.

How it works

The extreme efficiency of the OptiBoost technology is due to two main factors:

  1. The vacuum infusion applied in the treatment chambers is optimized to enable the perfect amount of nutrient solution to reach the cells of the treated flowers. The stem and leaves are impregnated with the optimal amount of solution
  2. The nutrient solution – OptiBona,  is  based on the latest generation of nanotechnology
