Sentinel: specialists in Scindapsus
The Sentinel nursery uniquely specializes in Scindapsus, a green houseplant native to the tropics. It’s a climber in its usual habitat, latching onto other plants and trees as it grows in the jungle.
Our nursery in Sprang-Capelle has tamed it and created a houseplant. Scindapsus is available as a houseplant – in a pot – and as a hanging plant, with a hanging pot. It’s also a plant that’s very popular for creating a ‘green wall’: decorative walls of plants that are becoming more and more popular in interior design in offices and public buildings all over Europe.
The natural environment
Being able to imitate the natural environment of the tropics in our 27,000 m2 nursery means we can grow robust, healthy plants. Quality is also one of our priorities, which is why we invest a lot of time in quality management. We follow the requirements of various ISO standards in every process in our nursery. For each growth phase, we look closely at whether a plant still meets our standards.
Sustainability comes first
We are also a sustainable nursery: we are mindful of our water and energy consumption and use as many natural products as possible to keep our plants healthy. We treat our employees – both in the Netherlands and in our subsidiary in Uganda – as we would like to be treated ourselves.
Market-oriented production and delivery
Prioritizing by our customers’ wishes, we do everything we can to ensure we can supply customer-specific Scindapsus plants. No ask is too big: a packaging with a visible barcode, a special pot, a colourful cover or price sticker… we’ll make it happen. We also adapt the packaging to your wishes: box or tray, mixed or per type.
Everything available from stock
If you need it now, we’ll deliver it with the same urgency. A big advantage of Sentinel is that we can always deliver Scindapsus from our stock,as all processes have been automated as much as possible. This isn’t only good from an efficiency perspective but also helps to improve quality and uniformity.
