EXPERT AT HEART, BREEDER AT THE SOUL

Little One Plant Nursery is founded with love of the art of breeding by Mr. Santiporn Sangchai (Lek) in Thailand.  It is recently founded, but certainly, Mr. Lek had experiences working with many types of plants prior.  His heart eventually is set on succulent families where he can best express his creativity and finds his patient to be most fulfilling.  For many years since, Little One Plant Nursery has seen generations after another of new hybrids such as Euphorbia hybrids, Dorstenia hybrids variegated and many more by his creations.  Servicing and teaching his clients from all over the world earns him an expert title, but his life-time achievement among the world’s most award-winning luminaries in succulents and other plants earns him the nurturing soul of a breeder.
