Owner C.J. Bouwer founded Obesa nursery 35 years ago.  It began as a hobby and passion and grew into one of the biggest privately owned Cacti and Succulent nurseries in the world today.Obesa nursery, situated in Graaf Reniet has established itself on 10 hectares of land.

The Karoo climate being similar in nature to their native origins is perfect for their propagation. We currently house about 7 000 species of plants, and raise about 350000 plants each year. Our stock plants exceed 2 million.
