About Us

My name is Harry Lewis. Living Desert Plants is a hobby-turned-business, and keeping my plants happy and healthy is therefore my number one priority.

I bought my first succulents as a hobbyist in late 2016. Those initial five plants have today grown to a collection hundreds strong, and have now led to the opening of Living Desert Plants. I specialize in indigenous succulents, specifically rare Haworthia, but I do have other plants as well. I do mail orders, and visitors are welcome by appointment to the nursery in Stellenbosch. I do also trade for exceptional specimens with other collectors.

I have a formal tertiary qualification (Advanced Diploma) in Nature Conservation. Predators and plants are my passion.
