The Medinilla has been for sale in Europe for over 40 years. Nursery Atlantis was the first Nursery who managed to bring good quality Medinillas to the world market on a large scale. Nowadays it’s the third generation from the Scheffers Family who grows the best quality Medinillas with passion and we keep optimizing on the growing of the Medinilla.
Nursery Atlantis is the number one in the world when it comes to crossbreeding, cutting and growing the Medinilla. Our success lies in the passion for plants, especially the Medinilla. This passion expresses itself in to the endless caring and effort that we put into the plants.
We strive to have optimal growing conditions to be able to keep producing constant high quality and optimal availability. We manage to realise these optimal conditions with our knowledge and technology which we built up over the past 40 years.
Our efforts in combination with the present knowledge and experience are the key factors which make the high quality standards of Nursery Atlantis possible.
The Medinilla Piccolini, Dolce Vita and Dolce Rossa are available throughout the year, across Europe. Because we want to guarantee the right quality, the Medinillia magnifica is only available from week 1 to week 44. All our products are sold via a wide network of exporters and traders. The customers can order their products in different ways. This is possible via phone, e-mail and the diverse trade platforms that are known in the sector.
Our customers can be sure about a high level of flexibility because of short transport lines and three delivering times a day. This is the reason why we are able to deliver our customers even on the day of ordering.
Before our plants can be delivered, there is always a last quality check. The order will never be sent off before it fits the agreed norms of quality. We check the quality, the ripeness, the amount of flowers and the fust and eventual add-ons like stickers or labels from (the customer of) the exporter. After the last check the plants are packed for transport
The Medinilla specialist
Our company was established in 1982 by Rob Scheffers. Over these past 40 years we grew a lot of different plants, hence we gained a lot of knowledge about growing. However there is one plant that stole the heart of the Scheffers Family, the Medinilla. Rob inherited the passion for growing the Medinilla from his father. Rob, in turn, passed this passion on to his children. This is the reason why the Scheffers Family has the knowledge about growing Medinilla already running through their veins for more than 40 years. Rob Scheffers and his daughter Marjolein even travelled all the way to the Philippines several times to study about the growing conditions of the Medinilla in its natural habitat. They did this with the aim of optimizing the cultivation of the Medinilla in their greenhouses and to improve the quality of the product even more.
With this knowledge and experience we can make sure that you come home with the best and most beautiful Medinilla.
The crossbreeding program started in 2003 out of love for the Medinilla. Rob has contact with other Medinilla lovers and scientists all over the world who carry out research about Medinillas. With help from these people Rob was able set up a wide collection of hundreds of Medinilla species. With the aim to make a wider product range with better, stronger, longer flowering and more eccentric Medinillas with different colours, Marjolein used these Medinilla species to set up the breeding program in 2003. Till today three new Medinilla species successfully came out of this crossbreeding program: The Medinilla Dolce Vita, Piccolini and Dolce Rossa.
