O

ur nursery is specialized in succulent and dry areas plants from Africa, Arabian Peninsula and Indian Ocean's islands.

It is to make you discover this diversity, that Afroplants has chosen to distribute a selection of genus and species. And offering plants is a real investigative work in order to meet the ever changing amateurs demand, and let's face it, our own curiosity. Thus, our stock comes from several sources:

Sowing

Our seeds are coming mainly from suppliers reputed for their seriousness. A growing part is also coming from the controlled pollination of our mother plants. And at last, a small amount comes from reasoned collections made during our travels.

Cuttings

It is the way of multiplying plants that do little or no fruit like certain Adenia, Cissus, Euphorbia…, or to keep identical a plant whose foliage, flowers are appreciated, or which comes from a precise locality like Aloe, Adromischus, Gasteria

Grafting

Commonly performed for Cactaceae, but rarely with succulents, it remains the only way to reproduce some recalcitrant genera such as Ceraria namaquensis, some Euphorbia and other Asclepiadaceae.

Trade

Due to the small size of our infrastructures and to the ever-changing demand from amateurs, we also buy occasionally from our colleagues around the world.
