Hello Plants Lovers:

Dragon Agro Products was founded in 1994 as a result of Perla's former company (Mobil Oil Technical Service) moving to a 3- hour drive location. Since Perla was not thrilled in moving , she thought about putting up her own business; one that she also enjoys.

Although she was a botanical ( orchids, bonsais, unusuals etc ) hobbyist, she never joined any orchid societies, bonsai societies etc.,.untill the company was incorporated. She learned about horticulture from reading books and the botanical vendors where she spent her money to satiate her hunger for the unusuals and ever increasing botanical collection. . She has been collecting orchids for the past 20 years , traveled to about 50 countries and acquired an extensive network of contacts domestic and abroad.. To jumpstart her business, she turned to importing in quantity blooming size plants from abroad and hard to find seedlings in the local and foreign market. It cost less to grow plants to blooming sizes in the tropics compared to the Northeast coast in the USA. It is the other way around.now. Vendors that Perla used to buy her plants from are now buying from her.

The following were her accomplishments in the non-botanical field::

The other partner, Tito , has been exposed to CP, orchids and other exotic animals and even when he was a kid ( 10 years old). Tito used to tend the orchids and various pet collections that his father brought from his travels as a merchant of corn, copra, abaca and other exotic animals in Mindanao, Philippines. Tito's interest as he grew up wandered into electrical & electronics engineering and as a consequence, he completely disassociated himself from anything that requires watering or feeding. About 25 years ago , Tito gave Perla a Phalaenopsis as a birthday present and that's how he got dragged involuntarily into this botanical thing again. Tito still works as a Sr. Instrumentation and Controls Engineer with especialty in Electrical , Instrumentation and Automation and validation for Lockwood Greene Engineers , a subsidiary of CH2M Hill, an Engineering Consulting firm in the Somerset area in New Jersey that render engineering services to the Oil Refineries & Distribution, industrial, pharmaceutical, bio-technology and commercial sector.

So much for non-botanical related topics. We are in the midst of expansion on a 4 acre land With a bigger growing facility, we'd be able to carry more varieties of botanicals ( orchids, Carnivorous Plants, rare plants and more supplies). We hope you'll enjoy perusing our website.
