    After many years of absence, together with retired Moderator, David and Celticfish. We went for an outing to the farm, looking for plants for David's new tank.

    For those who don't know about them.

    Teo's farm was one of our favorite haunt for plants, they do import/export and welcome walk-in visitors. They have many plant selection, both in either emerse or submerse form. We have learnt over the many years of visits, how the emerse form of the various aquatic plants looked like.

    Teo have offered in many ways his hospitality and generosity on our every visit Hence, we helped in the setting up of a 8 footer planted tank. That was eons ago. But I'm proud to announce that the tanks are still there, lack abit of maintenance.

    here are some of the photos





    According to Teo, this Echindorous is something new.


    The many tanks of submerse stemmed plants.

    The boss so humble and helpful it rubs off to his workers. It's been a while for me too but still remember how to go there.

    Maybe I'll visit there soon and recommend him to grow Bucephalandra since it's the in-thing now. He'll listen to such things because it helps his business and in way us too.

    That was how, back then, we hobbyist tips him off on the latest trend in the hobby. Call it spoiling the market if yoou want but it's good for hobbyist and probably nature as we refrain from harvesting everything from the wild.

    Hi, is this place still open or worth going to see? Just saw a blog that says something about it getting 'taken over' by the government?? https://aquariumdude.wordpress.com/2014/12/17/teo-aquatic-plant-farm/

    Re: Trip to Teo Aquatic plant farm

    Hi, i have been to Teo's farm 2 weeks ago. Unfortunately, it is no longer growing/exporting plants since a few years back. The farm looks pretty much unkept and apart from some lilies, hydrilla and some nanas... it seems like we have lost another scapers' paradise.
