    24th August Metallica coming to Singapore. Eh, just realised Gan is concentrating on his arowana, no more amazonian fishes like the jumbo teteas and plecos. Went there a few months ago with a colleague. Teo Aquatic still there but their exotic plants that were selling like hotcakes in the past are no where to be seen. Mostly staple species found in the lfs.

    Quite hard nowadays. Spent an hour with Gan listening to him lamenting about this trade and how he got out of it and went another direction. Went to Teo's after visiting Gan, Teo's still has the plants volume but those exotic species in the past like toninas and such were no where to be seen. If you see the plant farm at Pasir Ris that were known in the past by the moniker Ah Pek, quite sad too, a shadow of the past.

    Maybe a private recce is best. Got a shock when I went to this 3 places. The only 1 farm in singapore I really want to go into to look see, look see is Oriental but I believe Timebomb was lucky enough to get into that farm for a tour. They do not entertain walk in customer. A world supplier of aquatic plant in our backyard.

    David, has you go to GreenChapter yet?

    Re: Excursion To Gan and Teo on 24 August 2013

    Just curious, putting the transportation cost/time aside, would it be cheaper to get the stock to kick-start a 2ft tank rather than to go around LFS looking for them? How does it work Teo's farm? Is it like shopping/picking plants in a nursery and then paying at the counter? By the way, are they open on Sundays ?

    Yes, they are open on sundays... i usually go there on the weekends too.

    Its basically like buying direct from a plant farm, you select the plants you want and they are taken from the concrete ponds.

    You'll usually see their staff constantly packing harvested plants, destined for both export and LFS.

    Its definitely better to get plants from farms like Teo's, especially if you need a larger quantity at one go to stock an entire tank, then it justifies the extra time and transport costs to get there.

    Just be careful when walking around the concrete ponds when viewing the plant selection, don't end up stepping into one of the pits and get your foot covered in chicken poo.

    Thanks for the info. Dropped by during the afternoon and had a good 'harvest' for my beginner setup. The uncle who served us was quite helpful and patient with all our questions.
