CosMic Plants Inc. is a greenhouse operation conveniently located, 5 minutes from the Queen Elizabeth Way between Vineland and Beamsville, in the Niagara Peninsula in Ontario. It was established in 2004 and is operated by a team of valuable employees together with owners Neil and Mike van Steekelenburg. The name CosMic originates from their names Cornelis (Neil) and Michael (Mike). Neil is in charge of production, climate control and Mike is in charge of marketing and sales.
We produce Phalaenopsis Orchids in 5 inch pots and 3.5 inch pots all year round. Our greenhouse facilities are equipped with the most modern techniques to provide for a continuous supply of these beautiful flowering tropical plants. Our customers are mainly floral wholesalers and distributors who, in their turn, supply florists, garden centers and chain stores. But we cater to floral designers, event planners and interior-scapers as well! We take pride in preparing the orders exactly to the specific wishes of our customers.
Our Orchids are now available for sale to the public 😊 On November 29th 2017, we opened our retail store named; The Art of Orchids – Retail Boutique, which is located at our Bartlett facility - 4665 Bartlett Road Beamsville (Lincoln), Ontario L0R 1B1. Almost every flower store and garden center in our area caries our Orchids.
The ones closest to us are
The Watering Can, on 3711 King Street in Vineland (phone 905 562 0088) and Cole's Florist, on 147 Main St E in Grimsby (phone 905 945 2219), both are a retail flower and garden market with a great selection of floral products, including our Orchids.
The logo with the words Colour – Emotion – Life has become a “seal" for quality. The words reflect what flowers do to people: our Orchids bring Colour, they are purchased with a certain Emotion in mind (joy, happiness, sympathy, thankfulness, etc.) and they are real and bring a sense of Life to their destination.
Place your orchid in moderate light conditions and not in direct sunlight.
Water your orchid once per week by saturating it in water for about 15 minutes.
The cover pot should be dry and it should never collect water because Orchid roots like air.
When your Orchid has lost all its blooms, cut the stem off as low as possible but above the lowest bract (a bract looks like a ring around the stem).
How to water your Orchid.
Temperatures between 15 C and 25 C (59F -77F) are recommended.
After about 15 minutes, remove the Orchid pot from the water and let it drain out all excess water.
Don't let the Orchid sit in water! Make sure the cover pot is dry.
For decoration only! Not for consumption.

I have just received one of your orchids and would very much like to compliment you on your packaging, and presentation (not to mention the plant itself). I really appreciate the thought & design that went into this project. Keep up the great product, and may you enjoy a prosperous future.
Dear Mike: Wow!, Thank you so much for the information on the care of my NEW ORCHID! The information is what I needed. They really are beautiful plants. I saved your Orchid Care Information, on my computer, for safe keeping and future reference.
- Warm Regards, Margaret
The Orchid I bought was beautiful, long lasting and beyond expectations! Thank you! My children in Ottawa and Montreal have purchased your Orchids as well. It is so worthwhile getting Orchids from your greenhouse!
I just wanted to thank you for the excellent quality on the Orchids and allowing us to take advantage of your promotional pricing for this week! It is nice to know we can count on great suppliers like yourselves!
- Thanks again, David
My husband and I would like to say a heartfelt thank you for the most beautiful Orchids you provided for our daughter's wedding. Mike, they couldn't have been more perfect! Even the wedding planner had never seen such excellent quality plants. Again, thank you Mike for making our daughter's day even more special. Thank you for providing such perfection.
- Sincerely, Monica & Robert
We just got the proofs of our professional photographers pictures from the wedding and I wanted to send you some of the beautiful pictures where your orchids are displayed! Thank you for your flowers - they were gorgeous! In fact, they are continuing to flower in everyone's homes even though its now been more than two months since our wedding.
- Thank you again! Lisa and Matt
