plants at Ponkan Pines
Ponkan Pines Nursery in Apopka, FL

  Tropical Foliage Plants is a family owned and operated wholesale distributor to the “green industry” since 1968. Primary customers include retail florists, garden centers, plant shops and interiorscapers. Located in Delhi Hills, a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio this area has a history starting with farming and gradually shifting to greenhouse production. Today, Tropical Foliage Plants carries on that tradition with over an acre of greenhouses used in the production and warehousing of our own products.  

  We have the most complete inventory of plants in the Tri-State area.  Shipments arrive weekly from our own greenhouse facility in central Florida called Ponkan Pines Nursery along with other plants from select growers located throughout the state of Florida. Our facility in Florida has over two acres of foliage production that allows us to maintain and provide foliage plants that are consistently superior in quality to other suppliers. Flowering plants from Canada arrive twice weekly to assure proper bud stages and shelf life for the retailer and end user. Customers can pick their own orders from our greenhouses or our experienced staff will hand pick and prep orders for delivery on our own temperature controlled trucks. With us it’s all about consistently great quality in our products and consistently great service to our customers.

We would like to thank all of our customers for the loyalty and business they have given to us for over 55 years, it is appreciated!
