Before you purchase.
We accept online payments only through PayPal, Cash payments are only acceptable for in-person payments and cash-on-delivery (COD).
Cash payment can not be sent through the mail.
Please only one PayPal payment. SO THE COMBINED SHIPPING RULE WILL CAN BE USED. Late or Multiple PayPal payments are NOT eligible for any discount.
We will ship once a week - ON or BEFORE WEDNESDAYS, because of the special stamps needed to ship plants and cuttings to you. This can only be done at the Dept. of Agriculture. If payments are not met before that MONDAY, your items will be shipped the following week and lose the combined discount opportunity. Non-paying bidders may receive negative feedback and will be reported as an unpaid item to eBay.
COMBINED SHIPPING POLICY
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING is not included in this offer. INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING ON LIVE PLANTS on a case by case basis.
We will combine shipping for auctions won on the same week paid with same PayPal payment.
This policy is good for auction items bought and paid for in the week ending MONDAY.
We ship on Tuesdays.
Payment must be received within 4 days of the auction ending.
Combined Discounts Won Auctions
For 2-3 winning auctions, the combined discount is 10% of the total Shipping and Handling charges.
For 4-7 winning auctions, the combined discount is 20% of the total Shipping and Handling charges.
For 7+ winning auctions, the combined discount is 30% of the total Shipping and Handling charges.
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.
When you order a plant we assume you are prepared to care for it. It is your responsibility to know how to care for the plant.
Do some research before they arrive or seek experienced help.
Small plants need protection from many things, wind, sun, dry-out.
They do well just in the garage or living room. They need good light but not sunlight (full sun will burn small plants).
Small pots dry-out easily. Just sitting in a shallow tray of water works well. The idea is to keep the plants from dehydrating.
After you Receive your Items
Be careful if you decide to re-pot. Re-potting voids any warranty. Plants are easily damaged with new/different mix.
Use NO fertilizers (this may kill your plants). Proper care is critical upon arrival.
Live Plants are NOT GUARANTEED to survive under your care. DO NOT expect any live plant to be GUARANTEED to remain alive.
Plants are NOT GUARANTEED TO SURVIVE after you begin Care! Live arrival is guaranteed, eternal survival is up to you.
IF YOU DO NOT PROVIDE PROPER CARE, Please DON'T EXPECT plant to be GUARANTEED after it perishes.
NO REPLACEMENT WILL BE CONSIDERED IF YOU HAVE RE-POTTED THE PLANT.
Please Do NOT email me a week after potting your plant, and make a claim it arrived damaged.
If you re-pot your plant after delivery, all warranties are voided and no replacement is offered.
All photos must be as arrived in original condition as received (in the box and packed as delivered).
Not every plant that I grow 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.
You are agreeing to these terms when you make this purchase from this listing.
LIVE PLANTS ARE PERISHABLE.
US orders ONLY are GUARANTEED for LIVE ARRIVAL .
All International orders are shipped at the BUYER's RISK!
From delivery confirmation, you have only 48 hours from delivery confirmation to make any claim.

I am very reasonable and understanding, anything can happen to small plants in transit, for this reason not insurable.
The expense to send it to you is most of your payment. To send any replacements, I try to piggy back with your next order.
