      Mr. Nishio from Higashikagawa City is cultivating chrysanthemums in about 14 houses. Lighting cultivation is a cultivation method that makes use of the characteristics of chrysanthemums (short-day plants) that flower as the days get shorter. By illuminating the night lights, the illusion of daylight is illuminated and flowering is artificially adjusted. In this way, it can be harvested during periods of high demand and shortages, and can be provided throughout the year. The growth of chrysanthemum changes with temperature. We carefully manage the "time of flowering" and "time of growth" and grow beautiful single flowers. Nishio says he wants a lot of people to know the beauty of chrysanthemum, which is becoming more and more popular. Why don't you enjoy the beauty of Kiku that has a presence not only in traditional Japanese rooms but also in Japanese modern rooms?
