We have a large range of

plants that will suit a variety of conditions so there is an air plant for everyone and every place in your home or garden.

for fabulous plants from the Bromeliad family. 

They do not require soil to grow and can be grown in creative ways on a variety of mediums that will look great in your home or garden.  All you need is light, air and water.
Tillandsias are special plants because their roots are only used to anchor the plant, they do not absorb any water or nutrients through the roots, all absorption is through the leaves.This enables you to use them creatively, mounting and hanging them in your home or garden or make fabulous gifts.They are simple to send throughout the country by courier delivery with no damage to the plant.

Very happy customer - Rare and Air I saw the Rare and Air article on Facebook. I was very impressed with the layout and description of all the plants. I contacted Ruth who was extremely helpful and she then recommended the beginners combo (5) I then decided to shop and found the website very user friendly. Prices were also very reasonable. My parcel was delivered in Cape Town 3 days later by the Courier Guy. Packaging was done beautifully. Plants lovely and healthy and each plant with name label. I shared my enthusiasm with my friend and we have since placed another order. We are both totally hooked 😁😁

Hoya Australis I am a Hoya collector and I have to say that I am very impressed with the Hoya Australis that I ordered. This plant is more than large and is by far the largest Hoya I Have received online (1.93 meter in length). It was blooming when I received it and the shipping was fast and without delays. I will order definitely order again.

Order of Thai Pinks This was the first time I ordered plants myself online and I had some questions which Ruth kindly sorted out for me. When I received the plants I was so disappointed to see the big difference in the size of them and queried this but when Ruth explained why this was and offered a discount on the small plant I also realised that I had made the mistake of not checking the photo showing the size that would be sent. The smaller plant was actually much closer to the size for that price and not the bigger plant.
