Van Wingerden Greenhouses adds Tropicals & Succulents.

VW’s Young Plant Division produces new sought-after varieties to better serve the industry.

BLAINE, WA – Van Wingerden Greenhouses recognizes the consumer demand for houseplants has rapidly increased in recent years and is still growing. As retailers find more consumers coming through their doors looking for foliage plants and succulents.

“One of our goals is for VWs to stay ahead of market trends and supply our customers with plants that are hard to come by,” says Tom Van Wingerden, Sales Director of Van Wingerden Greenhouses. “Adding succulents and tropicals to our young plant offering means our customers benefit from the specialized expertise we have in growing these products for the wholesale market. We’re looking forward to an exciting future of providing growers with an attractive array of different textures, patterns, and colors with these two new lines.”

For delivery options please contact your broker. We are well positioned to supply both the Canadian and US markets.

Many of our tropical and succulent trays can be found on Webtrack and will be available in 2021 to add to your Spring orders with new items like Calathea, Philodendron, Ficus, and Alocasia in the pipeline! You can also find our inventory weekly on our own Web app at

As part of our commitment to quality, we are adding the integration of more LED lights to our growing program. This is especially important when growing young plant starts as it keeps the plants from stretching for the sun during our northern latitude darker days and helps promote root growth and develop a stronger plant.
