Our Guarantee To You
We guarantee that your plants will maintain their excellent health throughout the first 30 days from the time of shipment. All we ask is that you follow the recommendations for sunlight, water, soil, and temperature as indicated in the literature included with your plants or in our online care guides.
(Putting your plant in a terrarium or growing them in a manner that's contrary to our recommendations will void this guarantee!)
Package theft is NOT covered by this guarantee. Please ensure your delivery location is secure. Signature delivery is available upon request at no additional charge.
We take all reasonable precautions to ensure that your plant arrives in perfect condition, and in 99.5% of the time, the Post Office delivers packages with no issues at all. Should your plant arrive distressed, we will most likely recommend specific growing steps to nurture the plant back to health. We do this because we also guarantee the health of your plants for 30 days from the time of shipping. If the stress was minimal, your plant will recover nicely.
If the stress was severe, then we will take care of the situation immediately.
At our discretion, we will send you a replacement, or exchange the plant with another of equal or higher value, or give you an in-store credit, or refund your purchase price.
Please contact us immediately (within 48 hours upon arrival as determined by USPS tracking) if you are concerned about the quality of your plant.
OUTDOOR PERENNIALS IN FALL, WINTER, AND EARLLY SPRING:
Garden plants, or outdoor perennials, have a period of winter dormancy. These include Venus flytraps, Sarracenia, hardy sundews, and hardy butterworts. In Fall, they drop their leaves and stop growing. They will naturally have fewer leaves and appear less vibrant. These signs are not at all indicators of poor health. Instead, they are signs of your plant is entering winter dormancy. Therefore, we do not replace plants that are entering winter dormancy or are fully dormant. Please follow the care instructions provided with your plant.
Sarracenia emerge from dormancy in early spring, at which time all older pitchers have been cut off. This is true for Sarrenia purchased in March through May. Some plants emerge quickly. Others emerge slowly. Their lack of pitchers in early spring is not a reason for a refund or replacement.
As noted on every sales page of every outdoor perennial, which includes Sarracenia, Darlingtonia, Flytraps, and Hardy Sundews:
"Photos illustrate summer growth. Appearance changes with the seasons at the time of shipping."
BARE ROOT RHIZOMES:
Bare root Sarracenia are shipped during winter dormancy. All leaves will have been trimmed off and roots rinsed of soil. While dormant, rhizomes are capable of withstanding freezing temperatures during shipping.
We guarantee rhizomes for 30 days as long as you follow the instructions provided with your plants. Instructions are also posted online and in our videos. A healthy rhizome will be firm with supple roots and white inner flesh. Beyond the 30-day period, you assume all responsibility for the health of your plants. If you're an experienced grower and willing to assume the majority of the risk, bare root rhizomes can be a great bargain. If you are new to growing Sarracenia, please consider purchasing an established potted plant instead. You will have better success learning about the seasonal growth habits and care of these plants with potted plants than with a bare root rhizomes.
If your plant isn't acclimating as well as you expected during the initial 30 days, contact us immediately via
Ask The Growers
Provide complete information about how you're growing your plan, which will help us accurately diagnose the problem and determine an appropriate course of action.
After following the recommended care information and the plant doesn't maintain its health,
at our discretion, we will either provide you with an in-store credit of the purchase price of the plant or send you a replacement plant (of equal or higher value) that is best suited for your growing conditions.
Shipping and handling fees are strictly non-refundable. Refunds or exchanges are not provided for free or bonus plants. Please contact us immediately if you have any questions about this policy.

Winter Shipping Guarantee
Purchase your tropical plants worry-free. At the time of shipping, we check the weather for every shipping ZIP code. If a freeze is in the forecast, we will insulate your plants with bubble wrap, package your plants in a larger size box, and include a 72-hour heat pack(s). You may also request Post Office pick up to minimize cold exposure of your package. This extra service is provided at no additional charge.
• Flytraps and Sarracenia can be safely shipped during freezing weather and are exempt from this type of packaging.
• Winter shipping of tropical plants is possible only when temperatures are above 20°F.
• We may delay shipping if temperatures in your area (or at the nursery) drop below 20° or if USPS reports transit delays due to extreme freezing conditions.
• We reserve the right to cancel your order if we are unable to transport your plants within 3-4 weeks of your order safely.
