Lush, Variegated Foliage & Accessories
Tropical Plant Empire is an online plant boutique that specializes in rare, hard to find and the most sought-after tropical indoor plants, especially aroids. Our main priority is to provide unique and unusual foliage plants of the best quality. Our professional growers carefully hand-pick plants to ensure that each individual plant is mature, fully-established and ready for their new home. All plants are well-rooted. We do not sell cuttings.
Tropical Plant Empire online boutique was originally started as a result of my passion in collecting indoor houseplants, especially unique and hard to find tropical plants. Originating from Bangkok Thailand, where there is an abundance of beautiful, unique foliage tropical plants, has allowed me an opportunity to source and introduce unusual, yet attractive, tropical foliage into Australia. An opportunity to bring vivid tropical vibes straight to your home.
We are proud to declare that, we are authorized by the Australian Government to legally import live plants from Thailand into Australia with all official Import Permits in place.
Owner and Grower,
Tropical Plant Empire
Our plants have been exquisitely sourced from professional growers both locally and internationally. As residents of Australia, we are passionate and fully aware of the potential impact that pests and plant borne diseases can have to Australia’s environment, and our unique national flora. To mitigate this risk, all of our plants, including packing materials, have been chemically treated according to Australian Government Standards, before packing and shipment from our selected growers. Upon arrival, the plants are carefully inspected by the Australian Border Force to ensure that all plants are pest and disease free.
To ensure that they are able to withstand these stringent import processes, the plants we select have to be in an extremely healthy condition and fully established. After inspection and fumigation, the plants are then quarantined for a minimum of three months in a Government accredited nursery to ensure that all plants have adapted to, and can successfully survive in the Australian environment, ready for their new home. This ensures that our plants are of the best quality, healthy and acclimatized to local conditions.
After the plants are in our hands, we endeavor as closely as possible to imitate their natural habitat (tropical environment) at our greenhouse. We raise our plants with care and love until they reach a viable size, in order to make sure that the plants are happy and healthy until they find their new home.
