About Our Plants

Welcome to Statement Plants. We are a small family run business based in northern Tasmania.

Our Plants

We propagate and nurture all our own plants expertly on site. Our range includes various cacti and succulents as well as seasonal indoor, outdoor and tropical plants. Availability of plants is constantly changing by season and year by year.

We grow our plants under as natural conditions as possible. As a result, our plants are fully hardened and ready to plant out when put online for sale. We are limited somewhat to plants that can withstand our Tasmanian climate as we use very little artificial growing environments. Due to our very long, cold winters, our plants may be ready a little later than those on the mainland.

Our plants are grown in compost, peat and bark from sustainable sources and we use recyclable, Australian made pots and accessories where possible.

Generally, we do not on-sell plants, nor carry plants protected by breeders rights (PBR) – although on rare occasions we may stock them.

Plant Sizes

Our plants come in a range of sizes. Our tubestock plants are young but established plants grown in propagation tubes. Tubestock plants are a very economical way to purchase plants. More established and larger plants are available in standard pot sizes.

When you select a pot size on the product page, an example photo is available for each plant in the selected size. The information here shows the standard pot sizes that we use.
