intensity appears to be controlled by temperature, light and fertilizer levels. Levels of
carbohydrates are low during summer when night temperatures are high and poor color often
occurs during this period. Low light intensity, especially during summer, and high
fertilizer levels also reduce color intensity. Best color intensity will occur during the
period November through May, if suggested light and fertilizer levels are utilized. During
periods of poor coloration, some improvement can often be obtained by increasing light
intensity and reducing temperature.
Light levels can affect appearance of multi-colored ti cultivars. Cultivars like Baby Doll
which normally have dark red leaves with a narrow medium red to pink margin, will begin to
produce leaves with wider pink margins as the production light intensity is reduced.
Suggested level is about 3000 to 3500 ft-c, which will produce plants with good
Good growth can be obtained with either
liquid or slow-release fertilizers at the rate of 2.9 pounds of actual nitrogen per 1000
square feet per month from a 3-1-2 or similar ratio product. Where plants are subject to
heavy rainfall or frequent irrigation, the fertilizer level may need to be increased.
The potting medium utilized for ti
plant should be of good quality, and provide excellent aeration and water-holding
capacity. Amendments should include a low to moderate level of micronutrients such as 1 lb
Micromax/yd3 and sufficient dolomite to adjust medium pH to 5.5 to 6.5. The higher pH has
been shown to be beneficial in reducing fluoride toxicity.
Suggested air temperatures for best
growth are 65°F minimum to 95°F maximum. Ti can tolerate lower and higher temperatures,
but growth rate will be reduced.

As each order is packed and prepared separately you will pay the quoted S/H charges
individually per item. If you buy the same species in that item it does calculate out the
discount (i.e.: additional items)
My stores' combined shipping is built in for same
items rather than a varied selection. Domestic S/H includes postage, USDA certification and inspection,
proper packing and delivery to Airport for prompt delivery. I can't really change any
of these. If you want one of this and one of that, it is hard to discount much as each
different species requires it's own prep, packing, then at USDA each has to be
unwrapped and inspected then repacked. USDA requires me to clean and prepare every last
piece before we drive them to the Inspection Station on the other side of the island. It
takes my wife and I, 2-3 days to pack items and get ready to ship. The whole next day we
drive around the island and get inspected (2-3 hours), then drive to the Airport Post
Office to drop off. It takes the same work with the same type item if you can understand.

For this reason uninsurable.
When you order a plant we assume you are prepared to care for it.
Please have potting media and a container prepared for your plant
before it arrives. Shipping can be stressful on a plant, and any
mistakes that you make upon arrival can stress the plant further,
which is not good. Proper care is critical upon arrival. It is your
responsibility to know how to care for the plant.
Not every plant that I order through
the mail survives, and I am aware of that and accept the risk when I
order. This is the risk that you as the buyer accept, because there
is no way to know what kind of conditions it will endure in the trip
to your door. My responsibility ends when a live plant is delivered
to your door. Live arrival is guaranteed, eternal survival is up to

Safe delivery is guaranteed and seeds lost or damaged during shipment will be replaced at
seller's expense. Claims must be made within 7 days of shipment. All other replacements,

Seed is a live product which depends on many important related grower skills such
as proper planting time, seed depth, type of soil, irrigation, proper use of fertilizers,
weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, disease free soil, and reasonable weather
conditions during the growing period. Germination is affected by such factors as
temperature, moisture content, light intensity and contamination of planting media. These
factors are totally out of the seller's control and are the buyer's responsibility and
risk. Consequentially, the seller cannot unconditionally guarantee seed to perform
properly regardless of conditions or the buyer's methods or mistakes.
