About Us

The Vetiver Solutions Blog is presented as a service of Agriflora Tropicals, a family-owned farm and nursery in the mountains of Aguas Buenas, Puerto Rico, USA. Since 1989, Agriflora Tropicals has served landscapers, contractors, and the general public with top quality vetiver grass plants for soil conservation and phytoremediation projects.

As members of The Vetiver Network International, Agriflora Tropicals produces top quality Vetiver plants for soil conservation and other bioengineering applications. We are the premier source of Vetiver plants on the Internet for clients in the USA, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.

About Our Farm and Nursery

In July 2015, Agriflora's nursery was relocated from our farm in Guayama, Puerto Rico to a smaller farm in Aguas Buenas, Puerto Rico. Downsizing on the way to retiring. We continue to provide the same quality vetiver plants and service from this new location.

About Our Internet Store

Our Vetiver plants are now available to the USA from Agriflora Tropicals, our own online store. Some package sizes are available from eBay and from Amazon.

The Agriflora Tropicals store site provides for volume discounts and shipping cost adjustments for larger orders. Please contact us directly for commercial applications or large residential projects.

About Ourselves

Agriflora Tropicals is family owned by me, Alberto Rodriguez, a retired engineer turned nurseryman, and my agronomist wife Carmen Iris Ruiz.

After serving as a US Army officer, I toiled for many years in the world of information sciences including roles with IBM, Hewlett-Packard, and other well known industry players. If you want to know more, check out my LinkedIn Profile. I am now leading the Vetiver side of the house of Agriflora. The Vetiver Network International has honored me with a certification as a Vetiver grower and installer, and an appointment as an Associate Director to its board.

Carmen Iris' experience in horticulture took her from private industry to management jobs with the University of Puerto Rico and the Department of Public Works. She is now fully dedicated to the plants of Agriflora.
