About usHem Genetics

Hem Genetics | "Low Grow Approved"
Hem Genetics breeds, develops and markets both seed- and vegetatively raised ornamental pot and bedding plant varieties for the professional grower market. Hem Genetics has developed highly successful varieties which require less or no plant growth regulators (PGRs). These genetic dwarf varieties are marked as "Low Grow Approved” in our assortment and include Petunia Limbo, Mambo, Geranium Nano and Salvia Reddy. No or reduced use of plant growth regulators (PGRs) is not only financially beneficial to professional growers, but also enables them to take a step forward in sustainable cultivation of plants. In combination with the creation of novel ornamental varieties, Hem Genetics continues to apply similar concepts in its breeding activities that will contribute to a greater awareness of sustainable applications in our industry.
