Welcome to the website for Orchid Species Plus. We hope you enjoy your visit.
Orchid Species Plus is a family-owned and -operated orchid nursery in Kingston, a small rural town in central Victoria, about 30 minutes drive from Ballarat.
We have been growing orchids for over 45 years but the hobby has completely taken over and we have been operating as a full-time nursery for about 25 years.
Collecting and Conserving Orchid Species
Over the past 45 years, we have become very interested in the collection and conservation of orchids species from all over the world, and we now boast one of the largest commercial collections in Australia.
Our interest in the conservation of endangered species sees us regularly pollinating and producing seed from our most treasured species orchids, raising this seed and making these rare gems available to our customers, in Australia and the rest of the world.
Orchid Fairs and Events
We also attend many orchid fairs, so check our events pages to see when we will be heading your way. Our nursery is open by appointment to both individuals and clubs alike. We have barbeque facilities for larger groups and are happy to provide workshop visits.
Just let us know in advance, as we have many commitments and may not be available at short notice.
Range of Orchid Species
Our collection contains many hundreds of genera but we have botanically significant collections of species Bulbophyllum, Coelogyne, Dracula, Masdevallia, Paphiopedilum, Phragmipedium and Maxillaria.
So if there’s a hard-to-find species you’re looking for, we are sure to have it and if we don’t, we can try and get it for you.
