Guru Premangee is captivated by the beauty of the amaryllis flowers. He wants to start growing and spreading them in Nepal. ‘Because’ he says, ‘Nepali houses and offices need more colorful flowers!’ Right now there is only one variety available in Nepal so there is room for plenty more!

To be able to grow them successfully they need a stable and controlled environment, which means a greenhouse with a well-functioning watering system. This is quite a challenge in Nepal. This is quite a challenge in Nepal.

Are you knowledgeable in managing these types of plants and/or do you have specific knowledge on designing green houses in countries with only very basic facilities? Or do you wish to contribute financially to this project? Then we would love to get in contact with you! contact!
