The Dai cultural minority of Yunnan, Southern China, are
flower loving peoples. Their favorit is Dendrobium chrysotoxum which they

colour of their religion exactly during the Dai water splashing festival

wide range of climatic conditions. Give it half a year of rain and half
a year of drought, both with maximum sunshine, and it will blossom regularly.

It grows in pots with poor soil as well as on rocks and trees.

ecologically friendly production of orchids:
Imagine, the traceability of your supply chain leads your customers to
the tropical jungles of the Mekong river and to the Himalayan mountains
where Tibet meets Yunnan. Immerged in diverse culture and rich biodiversity,
your customers can visit the places and people where your organic products
start from pristine soils, clean air, and where they support the livelihood
of local ethnic communities.
Would this add to the sustainability and credibility of your company?
Would your trademark benefit from international research publications
lauding your company's involvement in saving the rain forest?
If you are in the food, cosmetics, flower, herbal, and medical business,
certifying your products as contributing to rain forest and biodiversity
protection will be an advantage with a competitive edge.
The TianZi Biodiversity Centre is working with German Universities to
design land use systems, which are bound to change paradigms: we promote
rare agro-biodiversity species, manage complexity, and find alternatives
to destructive forms of mono culture.
If all this is in line with your company's business concept - please contact
The TianZi Team.
Please note that all species are cultivated and propagated in our experimental
garden and are not extracted from protected resources.
