Where are my plants shipping from?
Our plants are propagated by our local farm house and local farmers in beautiful South Florida and supplied by area, small business, tropical plant growers. We proudly ship in a plant box that will ensure a healthy delivered plant.
What delivery service will deliver my plant?
Our nursery has partnered with Fedex and USPS to deliver plants across North America.
I live outside of the continental United States, will you ship to me?
At this time we are unable to ship outside of the Continental United States. This includes Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Guam. We are sorry for this inconvenience.
Do you ship year around?
Most definitely we ship year around, despite your local weather conditions. However, we recommend at least one heat pack for 4 plants.
How long will it take for you to ship my order?
We will generally process your order within 3-5 business days of your order being placed. Holiday shipping times may vary. We package the plants at our nursery in South Florida to ensure safe shipping.
Should I repot my plant once it arrives?
When you receive your plant, it has been growing in it nursery pot for some time. The roots are most likely happy in its pot and most plants like to be more root bound. You can keep your plant in the nursery pot or use your own pot to match your home decor. You can repot your plant but keep a few things in mind.
A 4’’ pot is recommended for plants with not so fibrous or long wide roots. Be careful while watering them so they don’t hold too much water or their dirt gets too wet.
If the roots are extensive and full, you can use a 6’’ pot for planting.
We use our potting soil mix, a recommended soil for indoor houseplants or use a standard potting mix but be more careful about watering instructions as this may cause root rot if the soil stays too wet for too long.
When is the time to "pot up" or transfer my plant into a larger pot?
The answer to this is when your water is draining out of the pot completely and never really gets your soil moistened. It is then that there are likely more roots more soil. Repotting is usually done once in a year or so.
Make sure to never "pot up" more than an inch on each side and immediately after potting, lightly water your plant.
Why does my plant look different then the website?
Live plants will have variations in color, texture, finish, and size. While we make every effort to display our plants as accurately as possible, there may be subtle differences from what is displayed online.
My plant arrives damaged. What should I do?
Every plant is fragile and the shipping process is not always kind (or easy). Most of the time we get it right, but sometimes we don’t. When that happens, we fix it – be it a damaged plant or pot due to shipping carrier mishandling. Please inspect your package when you receive your delivery. Should your order arrived damaged, please write an email and take a picture within 24 hours of arrival to firstname.lastname@example.org or message us at 305-303-9009 make sure to include a photo within 24hrs of delivery and a team member will get back to you.
In the unlikely event a plant is received dead on arrival, it will always be replaced with the same or another plant of the same value.
