“TO KNOW MOTHER NATURE, IS TO LOVE HER SMALLEST CREATIONS.” TAKASHI AMANO
Our first greenhouse was constructed in 2014 since then we have now expanded to produce and house up to 20,000 pots on a monthly basis for the aquascaping market.
All our plants are carefully selected and monitored to ensure quality products are supplied at affordable prices to retailers only. We have a strict policy of no end user sales.
All the plants produced in our local greenhouse are grown emersed, meaning the plants are grown fully exposed to air. The roots and substrate are flooded with water, but there is no standing water above the stems and leaves
The reasons for this method of growing are below:
- Plants grown emersed ship better, they are shipped exposed to air just like they are grown
- No algae on the leaves, roots or stems
- Plants are much stronger and robust compared to submersed plants
