What is Brand X?
Brand X is Southwest Plantscape Products’ private label of a scientifically formulated solution designed  primarily to clean and shine live interior foliage plants. It is a silicone based product that effectively, with one application and no rinsing or wiping, removes dirt, dust and water and pesticide spots from the foliage without  clogging the plant’s pores.  It also help repel dust from settling on the plant’s foliage.

We refer to Brand X as 'The Complete Foliage Cleaner".  Using Brand X results in a totally clean plant.

These professionals have chosen Brand X as one of their favorite products and contractors throughout the United States, Canada, and even as far away as New Zealand use the product daily.

All of their answers  and comments regarding Brand X have been correlated and presented on another page on this site under the testimonials”  section.

Who Is SouthWest Plantscape Products?
SouthWest Plantscape Products was founded in 1986 as a division of one of the largest Interior Landscape Contractors in Southern California, Wilcox Environmental Interiors in San Diego. This firm at that time, with almost 20 years of professional experience,  serviced hundreds of commercial and residential accounts,  maintaining both interior and exterior plants. Through this experience and familiarity with what tools and  accessories were needed by the industry, Southwest Plantscape Products was established to distribute  these items to the industry nationwide.

In 1993 Wilcox Environmental  Interiors, Inc. was sold to Orkin Pest Control (now Ambius-San Diego),  however Southwest Plantscape Products was spun off.  Still today they distribute tools and accessories  to the industry generally throughout the United States and Canada and a few international firms. For the  past 19 years Brand X has been their most popular product.
Who Can Buy Brand X?
While Brand X has been almost exclusively  sold to the trade over the years, many garden sites on the Internet have found the product and recommended it generally for the purpose of eradicating scale and/or Mealy Bugs  on foliage plants.  We have, in the past, made the product available to anyone who called us, however now because of increased interest we have established this Web Site to make Brand X available to the public at large.
