Definations of tc plants, tubestock and 4" pot plants:
tc plants: These tiny plants suit for most overseas buyers and bulk buyers/growers from Australia. Please note that we sell tc plants in sterile flasks in multiples of 35 or 40; each flask contains either 35 or 40 plants depending on variety. Minimum buy is one flask.
tubestock: These are established rooted tubestock. Normally about 5 cm in height.
4" pot plants: 4" pot plants are usually in 4" (100mm) pots. But sometimes they can be overgrown in 65mm size pot or even in large seedling trays. But we call them 4" pot plants because irrespective of which size pots they are in, the plant size is as good or even better than 4" pot plants. As you know Bromeliads always grow better when they are under potted.
These plants are well established and vigorously growing which are most suited for retailers, Sunday market sellers, landscapers and hobby gardeners.
