For the duration of the lockdown, we will not be able to dispatch any orders. We will resume once the lockdown is over.
We are a small company without the resources certain larger companies may have to cope with a crisis such as this. So should you have any spare money left after making the necessary provisions for you and your family, any orders placed on our online store will assist us in ensuring we can provide for those families of our staff.
To make things a bit attractive for you, we will have a Lockdown Special for this period for orders placed online during this time. During the three weeks of lockdown the special offer will work as follows:
In order for you to get the discount on online purchases, please remember the following voucher code: LOCKDOWN This voucher code must be entered in the allocated place of the shopping cart before you press check-out to finalise your order.

During this period we will post lots of pictures of some of the beautiful plants available. Every day of the week we will also try and add more products to the online store so be sure to check in on a regular basis.
Plantae Orchids is a specialist nursery dedicated to the growing of orchids and rare & unusual plants. We offer a wide variety of orchid species and orchid hybrids with an emphasis on angraecoids, cattleyas, dendrobiums, oncidiinae phalaenopsis and vandas. Orchid plants can be purchased either at the nursery, at the various shows we attend countrywide or via mail order within South Africa.
Our inventory features also exotic plants such as tillandsias and other bromeliads, carnivorous plants, hoyas, ornamental gingers as well as some rare trees and shrubs.
We are able to present informative lectures and workshops. An informative monthly newsletter is circulated via e-mail with topical information on orchid growing and notices of shows and open days taking place in that month. You can subscribe to our newsletter by providing us with your details in the space allocated below to the right.
The orchid and rare plant nursery is open by appointment as well as on the special open days listed. It would be a shame for you to drive out to the nursery and find we are away on a delivery or attending a show. Please phone before you visit if it is not one of the open days listed on the website.
Come and enjoy the peace and quiet of the bushveld on one of our open days. You would be able to view a wide range of orchids and other plants, our growing facilities and a variety of exotic cage birds. The garden keeps on expanding and here you would be able to see orchids and other epiphytes growing and flowering in the trees combined with a range of indigenous and exotic plants along the pathways.
Wonderful scenery, a wide range of indigenous birds and trees will add to the magic of the visit!
