These smelly orchids have developed interesting pollination mechanisms to entice their pollinators (often flies) to visit. You'll note mobile lips, hairs as guides and tricky mimicry. Their tricks work on us humans too and it is definitely a group of orchids for anybody interested in orchids that are not supermarket pretty.
So who are we exactly?
Afri Orchids is a family business with a huge orchid obsession. We have been growing these beauties for more than forty years and in that time have collected a large number of rare and interesting species that we just love to share with you. In the last few years we also started growing seedlings from our own seed stock.
All of our orchids are grown on the farm and we really pride ourselves in selling only well-established plants.
