Where can I buy CosMic Plants’ orchids?
CosMic Plants Orchids can be found in many flower shops, garden centres, and grocery stores in the northeast quadrant of North America. To be sure if your local retailer carries our Orchids simply contact the retailer and ask for CosMic Plants Orchids, The Art of Orchids, or Colour-Emotion-Life. We are not kept up to date on exact availabilities at our retailers.
Additionally CosMic Plants is excited to offer online purchasing of our products (Shop Now) through our colaboration with The Watering Can! The delivery range of this online service is the entire Niagara Region, including Hamilton and Burlington. You can also purchase online with the option to pick your order up from The Watering Can in Vineland (3711 King Street, Vineland, ON L0R 2C0 )
Our own Orchid boutique store is currently still closed due to Covid-19. Reopening is sure planned, but yet to be determined.
How far do you ship your orchids?
Through our distributor network, we sometimes supply flower stores and retailers as far West as in Calgary, as far North as in Thunder Bay, as far East as in St Johns (New Foundland), and as far South as Florida and Texas. However, the far majority of our Orchids stay more local, in Ontario, Quebec, New York State, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Because of the fragile nature of our product, we do not currently ship via courier or post. Not to mention that it is expensive. Our “straight-to-your-door” delivery service range - via our online sales collaboration with The Watering Can - is available to Niagara, Hamilton and Burlington (SHOP NOW). You can always place your online order with the option to swing by The Watering Can to pick up.
Do you grow other Orchid species?
We specialize completely in growing Phalaenopsis Orchids. However, we sell them in many sizes, colours and styles.
Do you sell painted (dyed) orchids?
We only sell Orchids in colours that nature intended them to grow in; we do not paint or dye our Orchids. Dying and colouring Orchids reduces shelve life (the time an orchid will bloom for), and Phalaenopsis Orchids come in such an abundance of colour variations, that dying it in unnatural colours seems - to our dedicated team - to do a bit of unjustice to nature.
Is Orchid Bark better than Sphagnum Moss?
In nature, Phalaenopsis Orchids grow on hard surfaces like rocks and trees. Their roots are exposed to the air and not enclosed by turf, moss, or soil. As such we find that the bark particles from the pine trees resemble nature the best. It also provides for a solid foundation to the root system with better stability to the plant. Besides: pine bark is a by-product from the North American lumber industry – while sphagnum moss is harvested from nature in countries like Chili and New Zealand and is being imported. Orchids can thrive well in either potting medium.
