Small – the Next BIG Thing

We are witnessing a worldwide shift from larger to smaller pot sizes. After strong growth in the 9 cm pot segment in recent years, the pot sizes of 6 cm and 7 cm are now also gaining popularity. This also applies to Orchids and Anthuriums.

There are multiple reasons for this. Smaller pot sizes are more suitable for new and alternative positions in the house than the usual 12 cm pot. For example, the kitchen window, side table or home office. There is also a trend in the housing market: we are living in smaller homes.

In addition, thanks to better varieties and better cultivation in smaller pots, consumers get as much ornamental value for their money nowadays as they did 10 years ago with a larger pot. Smaller pot sizes are also more suitable for adding value and for processing into planting trays. For the trade, a higher load factor of smaller pot sizes also counts as a big plus, especially for distant destinations. There is also increasing interest in these sizes from the retail segment.
