Some well-known aquarium plants, such as Anubias and Microsorum, have developed over the course of evolution as "epiphytes". They naturally occur near cascades and waterfalls, which provide an enormous current in the rainy season. These rheophytes (the botanical term), grow firmly anchored on stones and roots.
We achieve optimal conditions in production in what we call, "climate tents", or "mini greenhouses". These are located within a full-sized greenhouse. Relatively strong shade and a spray system ensure a tropical rainforest climate.
The production of our decorative beauties is labor-intensive and requires patience and care, especially with the smaller filigree roots and stones.
