The company

The horticultural company Oasis Young Plants Ltd. was founded in 2008 and is located near the city of Moshi, Kilimanjaro Region, Tanzania. Situated at an altitude of 3000 feet above sea level, the geography provides perfect conditions for the growth of succulents. It owns several modern greenhouses, with total climate control by a climate computer that directs moveable top curtains and a fogging system, so that the temperature and humidity are kept at optimal levels for growth of the succulents. Furthermore, the greenhouses harbor automatically controlled water distribution via drip irrigation, so that water and fertilizers are well distributed, and fertilizer emission rates are close to zero. Outside the 7 acres (3 hectares) of greenhouses, several other horticultural products are cultivated.

Oasis Young Plants Ltd. is a nursery under Dutch management with extensive experience in horticultural business, thus providing good quality cuttings. Its specialization in the production of succulents is reflected by the different varieties of Rhipsalis, Haworthia and Echeveria and several Peperomia and Crassula  (see Products).
