Tissue culture & young plants project
PICO Tissue Culture and Young Plants project envisions being perceived internationally and in the Arab world, as the best quality supplier of a wide portfolio of young plants including indoor and outdoor plants, bedding plants, flowering pot plants and food crops.

PICO produces, grows, and sells, young plants, from tissue culture, from cuttings rooted in plugs and from seeds.
