For plant hobbyists, Little Botany needs no introduction. Many plant enthusiasts started their journey at their cosy Punggol plant nursery in Singapore, which had everything a new plant lover needs, coupled with friendly and helpful advice.
Little Botany recently moved their plant nursery to 90 Jalan Lekar, but this is where it all began. Here, Fendi Sani showcased a wonderful collection of aroids, snake plants and many must-have foliage plants and presented them beautifully. He is known to promote the work of local ceramicists and is caring and values inclusivity, supporting persons with disabilities, as well as animal welfare organisations. But most of all, he is known to be a nice guy.
For those in the know, there is a Seletar Farmway nursery that is popular with those looking for exotic plants. Located within Chwee Nursery at 9 Seletar West Farmway 7, you will find a cluster of plant fanciers who rent plots to house as well as sell their exotic plant collections. These consist of orchids and epiphytic plants, aroids as well as succulents.
Some plots are larger than others, with a fine variety of plants on display. While not everything is for sale, admiring these plant collections make for a wonderful experience in itself. If you wish to pay these plots a visit, it is advisable to check with them in advance before heading down.
3. Mashud Forestation – This extra-large plot is lush and beautifully decked out in a wide variety of foliage plants that include aroids, epiphytes. begonias, ferns, and many more. Lalii manages this plot and keeps it open Mondays to Saturdays from 3pm-7pm, while opening hours on Sundays and public holidays are announced beforehand on his Instagram page, where he is easily contactable.
4. The Botanical Assembly – They retail aroids, cacti, succulents, platycerium, caudiciform and other foliage plants. Shop their collection at their website or to visit their plot, reach them via their website contact form or through Instagram.
For those looking to add to their plant collection and are wondering where to buy plants online in Singapore, here are a handful of boutiques, nurseries and private collectors you can purchase edible plants, house plants, ornamental plants and exotic plants from.
