Why does my plant look different from the picture?

These are live plants and may not be exactly as shown. Plant sizes and heights fluctuate during the year and from one supplier to the next. Plants have naturally occurring imperfections and may have scarring, or residual cuts from the grower. Brown tips and edges are, in most cases, natural especially with the shock of being transported. While we make every effort to minimize transportation shock and clean the plants, there may be some undesirable leaves that have been left on for the overall health of the plants. If you have any concerns, please contact us with pictures and we will try to help identify and trouble shoot any issues you are experiencing.

Plant Heights

Plant heights and sizes differ from one supplier to another and also throughout the year. In general plants are shorter and smaller in the Fall/Winter months compared to summer months. Plant heights are measured from the base of the grow pot. The "approximate height" stated in the plant description is approximate and can be more or less.

What is the difference between an item on sale and an item on clearance

Plants on sale are in good condition and go on sale when we have a surplus or we want to make room for more inventory. Clearance plants are plants that require TLC (Tender Loving Care) and need more care to bring them back to their potential. All clearance and sale items and plants are final sale.

Can I Return my order?

All sale orders are final. But should you have any concerns please contact us within 24-48 hours of receiving your order.
