We offer all kinds of tropical or subtropical environments – ranging from rainforest to desert. Besides the huge amount of species we offer in living plants it is possible to supply with dead plantmaterial such as old trunks and lianas – and artificial foliage is also an option for problematic invironments like nocturnal zoo exhibits.
Construction of Tropical HousesBesides creating the exact type of environment that you need, we also offer our consultance in the early phases of building in order to discover any technical faults that might prove very expensive to correct later on – such as ventilation, heating, artificial light or water recirculation.
We offer solutions regarding problems with pests, such as ants, aphids and spidermites.

Animals and Plants
Enclosures for animals are one of our specials – and also butterflygardens where we can offer consultance on how to keep and breed - and which species will perform well in your exhibit.
We spend a lot of time in tropical areas to see how nature do the ”decorating” – how the plants are growing together and the amount of material we need to create the natural look, which is our primary task when we create a piece of tropical nature.
Plants and animals are a very exiting cocktail when put together into an enclosure – often the plants will loose the battle and the picture of balanced coexistence is lost. And that balanced coexistence is what we really want to show the public today – and that is why we create the invironments as natural as possible – to show the animals in their natural habitat, but in captivity.
