Wij zijn Plantanious





Surprisingly green!

Plantanious is a dynamic, innovative and sustainable horticultural company specialising in the cultivation of indoor plants and flowering seasonal products. We do this not only in our 4.5-hectare greenhouse in Westland, South Holland, but also by entering into honest and long-term partnerships at home and abroad.

This enables us to grow a wide range with many different and surprising products for the market. In which we never stand still!
Because we are constantly looking for new, surprising products and trends that can make our lives more enjoyable.

The Persoon Potplanten company was founded by Arie Persoon in 1950, growing tomatoes and lettuce at that time. In 1980, Aad Persoon started growing green houseplants at the current location, and together with brother John Persoon, the company has expanded to what it is today.

The total area of the company covers 47,000 m². Of this, about 6,500 m² is used for in-house production of the basic material required for cultivation.
Together with about 20 employees, they devote a lot of time and care to growing quality products. 

Not just green,
but the greenest

Plantanious is more than just a company: it is also a vision.
Because at Plantanious, we act and think green. For example, we heat our greenhouses with geothermal energy, and we supply our own electricity needs with a huge array of solar panels. We are justifiably proud of our CO2 reduction, which means we can make our products even greener than they already are!

Family business
Plantanious is built on the foundation of Kwekerij Loek Jansen, a family concern that has been a pioneer in the cultivation of houseplants and flowering seasonal products for three generations. In the past twenty years we have specialised in cultivating Ficus and container plants. Plantanious is run by the twin brothers Joost and Freek Jansen, entrepreneurs with a unique, clear vision and a heart and passion for green. Their mission: grow the company and let it flourish while realising a green, healthy world.

All plants are grown on concrete floors equipped with the "ebb and flow - system". It also operates 3 screening systems per department that can screen independently and save energy. The moisture content here is also maintained by fogging These are 3 examples within the company showing that we are working hard on energy-efficient and environmentally conscious cultivation.

Adopt Rainforest

Plantanious works together with the Work with Nature foundation. Our tropical rainforests are disappearing at a rapid pace and an enormous biodiversity is being lost along with the trees. If it were up to us, the jaguar would soon walk around again in the rainforest in Costa Rica protected by 'Adopt Rainforest'! The place where many of our special plants originate. In order to make an important contribution to the goal of the foundation - to protect 2,000 hectares of rainforest in the next ten years - we donate part of our turnover to protect part of the tropical rainforest. To achieve their goal, the foundation puts money into protection, conservation, reforestation, education and research.
