- Here are the main reasons why Ecuadorian roses are one of the best roses in the world:1.Climate
Ecuador is positioned on the Equator, which guarantees stable temperatures. Throughout the year, temperatures bounce between 20° C by day and around 6° C by night, making it an optimal rose-growing environment.
- Geographical Location and Altitude.
Ecuadorian roses are mostly grown on mountain slopes, at elevations surpassing 2,500 meters above sea level, thus, providing the roses with around 12 hours of direct sunlight. Also, the volcanic soil in the region is rich in minerals and the water used in the plantation is recycled spring water. The altitude also plays an important role in eradicating insects that feed on the blooms which makes the farming process easier and more eco-friendly. For instance, both of our farms are located on one of the earth’s closest points to the sun, providing optimal growing conditions, since being closer to the sun maximizes luminosity helping the roses to grow straight, fast, and tall and give blooms their bright tones.
The normal growth cycle of a rose is on average 8 weeks. The bloom is then mature enough to be picked and used for any occasion. The Ecuadorian rose, on the other hand, has a longer growing cycle which is typically about 15 weeks.
