Ecuador Roses

See below how to earn extra income with micro agriculture.


Tomorrow is the last day to order fresh Ecuador roses for Fedex delivery on Valentine’s Day. See how to order here.


Ecuador roses are among the best, if not the best, in the World. The reason is a unique natural combinations of factors.

First it is the altitude, Quito (Ecuador’s capital) is one of the highest cities in Latin America, and roses are grown just a few hours from Quito.

Second is the location, Quito and its surrounding areas are in the middle of the world, which means that the sunlight hits it directly, which added to the altitude make a unique combination of location and height for the roses to receive as much sunlight as anywhere else in the world.

As you know sunlight gives roses its unique colors. In Ecuador sunlight has more strength and it is able to give more radiation to the rose plants. That is why Ecuadorian roses have amazing colors and also a unique combination of them, which you can’t find anywhere else.


Another pro is that roses grow stronger there because the location and temperature are great. This gives the roses unique conditions to be better. This means, thicker stems, longer stems, brighter colors and a special combination of bicolor roses, that got their name because they have two tones and two different colors on their petals.

Ecuadorian Roses, which are sold at, also last a really long time, having customers actually wondering what is happening with them. “I got roses on Christmas that are still hanging in there, we changed the water this morning and some of them still alive, and we are at the second week of January”, Gary.

This means that Ecuadorian roses give you a great price for the quality. A lot of work has been put in making sure that the roses are among the best, and the cold chain plus the rapid and effective service by Fedex, ensures that the roses arrive at such a great condition year round.

At you can find a great selection of roses, not only they will help you out picking the best colors, but also will give you a better deal on price and quality than other suppliers. They use Fedex which means that roses will arrive at any zip code in the USA within 5 days from the day that they are cut.


This amazing roses will last a long time and will bright your house. Ecuadorian roses also have green labels,  Veriflora certifications, and no child laborers which adds confidence that this is a product that from A to B that takes care of every aspect of the business.


Take a look at the roses and be amazed at the quality.


Environmentally Clean Roses

The roses your receive are certified by Veriflora. The VERIFLORA seal is a real, green program that regularly spot checks farms for ecologically sound systems that include:

1- Water and ecological conservation: implementing water management systems to prevent depletion of fresh water supplies.

2- Product quality: implementing practices to ensure the quality of the product through the whole chain of delivery to the final consumer.

3- Advanced agricultural practices: integrating organic practices wherever possible. To only use approved green label certified pesticides. To allow no discharge of pesticides run off into the environment.

4- Waste management: recycling and composting as well as the proper disposal of agricultural chemicals.

By March of 2007 the co-op that sends your roses had certified 144 acres.

Certification means the growers have met or exceeded the requirements. There is no middle ground with Veriflora, no differing levels of certification. You either are ecologically sound and certified, or you aren’t.

That means you receive environmentally friendly roses.


Here are some of my Thanksgiving roses.  Compare that head size to anything you see in a store.

Fair Trade Roses

In addition the Verflora seal requires the rose grower to be socially responsible adhering to recognized labor and community standards, specially pertaining to health and safety, work conditions, hiring practices, discrimination, harassment and fair pay.

The growers offer every single one of their workers:

-free doctor and medical treatment at the farm for workers
-day care facilities for infants
-free breakfast and lunch (and dinner when they work late)
-free sports and recreation facilities
-small business loans -when workers want to leave to set up their own small holding farm
-workers’ fund -for financial help with school fees to buy a car, etc.
-complete health and safety equipment provided free -helmets , gloves, masks, etc.
-paid maternity leave with a guarantee of work when they want to return
-overtime paid over and above the legal requirements
-Christmas parties, summer holiday excursions, sports tournaments
-a safe and secure work environment with job satisfaction and potential for personal development

Learn how to earn by selling Ecuador Roses and Ecuador Exports.  We have added five special lessons in our International Business Made EZ course.

How to Earn in Ecuador.

How to Earn with Environmentally Safe Products.

How to Earn With Natural Health Products.

How to Earn in International Finance.

How to Earn in Micro Agriculture.

For example there is a way to earn income and help the environment and the poor… with Ecuador flowers.


Billionaire… Geroge Soros  once said about business and investing:

Markets are constantly in a state of uncertainty and flux and money is made by discounting the obvious and betting on the unexpected.

This is why the last year of difficult economic times have created opportunity.   Changes in the  socio-economic paradigm create new unexpected opportunity.  As the establishments crumble, new opportunities are created.

This makes life really exciting (and lucrative) for the business pioneers who accept and embrace change.  Merri and I feel this way every day and hope to share the excitement and opportunity with you.

Soros also said:  I think there’s a lot of merit in an international economy and global markets, but they’re not sufficient because markets don’t look after social needs.   I’m not doing my philanthropic work, out of any kind of guilt, or any need to create good public relations. I’m doing it because I can afford to do it, and I believe in it.

Merri and I could not agree more.  We have been involved in international business for 40 years, but became involved with Land of the Sun Foundation (LOTS) because we wanted to help the indigenous beyond business.  One of the most pleasing aspects of our business in Ecuador is that our foundation donations to help the poor in Ecuador are approaching 1 million dollars. That’s more than we have made in this country but when we see how the funds have been used by the indigenous we have spent on education and creating jobs… our satisfaction goes way beyond profit.

Soros’s final sage comment is: The worse a situation becomes the less it takes to turn it around, the bigger the upside.

There are several ways to take advantage of the current economic situation… invest in good value stocks & bonds… real estate… commodities or  to have or start your own business.

This is also why we have always offered Ecuador roses to help LOTS.

Robert Ribadineira, our flower supplier,  has now created a Fresh Flower Party Plan for flowers that can help you earn income as you help the poor with Ecuador flowers..

Party plans have been a highly successful way to introduce new ideas by displaying and demonstrating a product to those gathered at a party.

Roberto’s Premium Flower Party not only develops income potential and helps the poor but also helps resolve a huge problem that the economic downturn has created in the US.

The problem is that in the last several years nearly half of America’s florists have gone out of business.

The industry magazine Florists’ Review shows statistics conforming a major decline in retail florists’ (brick and mortar shops) market share. Retail florists have been going out of business and the surviving shops have not been picking up their customers.

Supermarket flower sales are the biggest source of this loss.  Internet sales also grew.

Plus there is less business overall. The economic slowdown since 2007 took a bite.   The average price per transaction has gone down.  Martha Stewart’s “how-to” approach on TV, in print, and even on the radio also taught homemakers how to place a bunch of flowers in a simple vase so a florist is not required.

Martha Stewart Flowers sold flowers and vases and eliminated the labor aspect of floral arranging so they could sell flowers below the pricing of retail florists’ mixed bouquets.

Martha made it OK, even smart to show this simplicity at your dinner table so there is no need to order arrangements.

This is where opportunity comes in because fresh Ecuador flowers delivered in volume are a great value. They last so long, are so superior in color, size and quality but the  high cost of minimal delivery can make them seem expensive.

Minimal delivery?  The sad fact is that Fedex delivery to a home creates about half the cost of Ecuador roses.  Plus that cost is fixed… the same for 50 roses as for 10 or 20 or 100.

This is where a flower arranging party plan makes huge economic sense.

If one orders 100 or more roses, the cost per rose drops dramatically.  If one has a party so rose buyers come to the supplier… the final biggest cost of the fresh Ecuador rose… getting smaller numbers of roses into each home is eliminated.

The buyer comes to the rose!

The idea is have a party. No selling pressure… just a get together to share an idea on arranging flowers… every two weeks (fresh Ecuador flowers last about two weeks).  Those who wish can order flowers for the next party two weeks ahead.  If 15 people attend and each orders a dozen roses… one order of 150 roses brings the price down to about 75 cents per rose.

It is harder and harder to get fresh premium quality flowers.  The new paradigm is that low quality, short lived cut flowers now rule the market.  The parties make really premium flowers available at a price competitive with the low quality flowers.

The Premium Flower Party creates a new, fun and fulfilling way for Americans to have top quality fresh flowers in their homes.

The party plan originated with the  Tupperware Company in the early 1950s. Tupperware’s success was widely copied and the idea hosting a social event in homes to demonstrate a product has become a popular and proven business model that combines fun and personal customer service.

Party plans have been used to sell items such as kitchen products, home decor, jewelry, skincare and cosmetics.

Yet fresh premium quality flowers have never been marketed via a party plan…until now.  The demise of so many florists and new three day Fedex delivery capabilities have made the Premium Flower Party a logical entry in the new economic paradigm.

Here is a note that Roberto sent to me.

“Gary, The program will begin as follows. I expect some small changes as we evolve and adjust to circumstances.

Leather Leaf Fern


We can provide our party hostesses with a nice variety of flowers and ferns.


1-      100 roses with 4 different colors all of the same tone (ex: pinks, pinks bicolors), or 4 different colors of different tones.
2-      10 bunches of leather leaf.
3-      12 bunches of hypericum.
4-      This will make 25 arrangements  with 4 roses,  4 leather leafs and 4 hypericum in each bouquet.




Gypsophylia (Baby’s Breath)


1-      100 roses with 4 different colors all of the same tone (ex: pinks, pinks bicolors), or 4 different colors of different tones.
2-      12 bunches of gypso (baby´s breath).
3-      12 bunches of daisy assorted.
4-      This will make 25 arrangements with 4 roses with 4 gypso and 2 daisy in each bouquet.




1-      100 roses with 4 different colors all of the same tone (ex: pinks, pinks bicolors), or 4 different colors of different tones.
2-      25 stems of oriental lilies.
3-      12 bunch of alstromerias assorted.
4-      This will make 25 arrangements of 4 roses with 1 oriental lily and 4 alstromeria on each bouquet.



Last year Merri surprised me on Father’s Day not with roses but 25 fresh Ecuador Lilies! I was thrilled at their beauty, aroma and endurance. Here are those Ecuador lilies in our home.


The arrangements are the freshest premium quality flowers.

The can be sold at the Premium Flower Party at a price that  is very hard to duplicate. Selling 25 bouquets at the party creates an extra income in a truly enjoyable way for those who love being with friends, flowers and beauty.

The fun is that each person makes their bouquet at the party!

Plan to offer a different bouquet every two weeks so guests come twice a month to make their bouquet and take it to their home.

The party hostess can also become a florist and take special orders between each party.

The really good news is that Ecuador flowers and roses are truly the best because there is 365 days a year of direct sunlight.


We have roses everywhere in our hotel. In the court yard where guests dine.


In the rooms.


In the hallways.


Even in…


the food displays.


The Premium Flower Party is a good way to earn income for those who like flowers… like parties… and want to work from home.

George Soros had written a  fascinating book entitled, “The New Paradigm for Financial Markets”.  This book explains that the next generation will have to understand bubbles rather than ignore them.  He is a deep thinker with ideas several decades ahead of his time.

The flowers delivered are environmentally friendly and fair trade flowers.

Roberto’s Fresh Flower Party Plan is an idea whose time has come and we help our International Business made EZ subscribers work with our flower supplier.

Until next message, may all your income be good and come with care.
