Best Species Orchid Nursery based in Kingston, Victoria

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.

So please enjoy our website and we look forward to meeting you.

Bill and Jan Miles.

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.
