Since there is no online shopping cart feature yet all orders will have to be completed over the phone.  You can e-mail me the name and address to ship to along with any other needed information such as gift message. Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover are accepted OVER THE PHONE.

TEXTING: Yon can also place your order by texting “ORDER” to 808-276-3911 and I will call you back as soon as I can to complete the order over the phone.

BEST TIME TO CALL: 11am-6pm HAWAII TIME on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

VOICE MAIL NOTE: I don’t always listen to my voice mails the same day so you will probably get a reply via text messaging quicker than leaving a voicemail.

(Saturdays and every other Sunday are my days off. I will reply to text messages Monday thru Friday and every other Sunday…)

EMAIL NOTE: Please allow up to one week for a response.

RETURNS:

Plants are like people. We cannot guarantee that they will grow under all conditions. Likewise, we cannot guarantee that the act of shipping the product will not cause some harm to the living plant. However, we DO guarantee that we will ship you the freshest, quality product available. If you find that your plant arrives in a non grow-able condition, please contact us within the next business day with any claims and/or discrepancies. Include a photo VIA EMAIL just after unpacking the order, and we will work with you in the spirit of aloha to resolve the matter.

If you received a plant that you believe isn’t in good condition then please send photos right away to prove this is how it looked upon arrival, which will be dated VIA EMAIL to document your claim on the condition of how the plant(s) were received. The shipping box itself can often look very beat up upon arrival, but usually the plants show up just fine. If we see proof that the plant was received in a non grow-able condition, we will schedule a completely free replacement order.

If something more minor occurs, such as a broken leaf then I’m sorry about that , but your plant’s ability to grow won’t be affected . If more serious issues with acclimation to your plants new home occur within the first 30 days then please  document the issue upon arrival with photos emailed in right away and include content regarding your claim/discrepancy. I will reply acknowledging your concern and might ask you to call me to go over some of the key points of care and then give at least a couple weeks to see if it will hopefully recover. If it doesn’t bounce back and show signs of recovery via more documentation of photos emailed in then a free replacement order can be scheduled as long as all documentation is reported during the first 30 days.

If your order doesn’t arrive within 4-5 days of the scheduled shipping date please contact us right away VIA TEXT if possible. If you cannot send a text message to this number then call 808-276-3911.  We will track the order and do our best to get it to you right away. If your order doesn’t arrive within a week from the date it was shipped and you don’t attempt to contact us within that week, we will ask you to pay for at minimum s/h fees on a replacement order, a rare situation…

If you contact me right away regarding an order gone missing then we can set up a completely free replacement order after we confirm the details over the phone.

We will kindly reship you a replacement plant, provided documentation as outlined above is complete and apologize in advance if you are one of the very few people that this can sometimes happen to.

An order can only be tracked within 120 days from the shipping date and therefor if a claim for a lost order is not made within 120 days, your order will be considered complete.

Refunds will not be provided for  any issues regarding a mail order. If you have an issue within the first month we can discuss the possibility of setting up a discounted replacement order if needed.
