Dennerle aquarium plants: Visit of the greenhouses!


At the beginning of the summer 2015, I had the pleasure to visit the facilities dedicated to the culture of Dennerle aquarium plants.

The German company located in Vinningen, not far from the border with France operates its greenhouses production for nearly 50 years old…

Hydrocotyle cf. tripartita Dennerle

Over the years, Ludwig Dennerle (Company founder) developed with his teams the numerous varieties of Dennerle aquarium plants as the Dennerle equipments.

So, He was one of the first to adopt a comprehensive approach of the aquarium ecosystem.

The German company cultivates its plants on two sites:

The first based in Sri Lanka, which has the particularity to have wonderful weather. The second production site Dennerle aquarium plants is based in Vinningen.

It is this site that I propose to you to discover in this video report located at the end of this article.

The company don't stop to evolve, today guided by teams composed of enthusiasts. The offices of Dennerle abounds with aquariums and plants where everyone lets go his imagination quest for perfection.
