hibiscusPaymenthibiscus

We accept online payments only through PayPal, Cash payments are only acceptable for in-person pick-ups and cash-on-delivery  (COD). Cash payment can not be sent through the mail. Message me if you want to send cash.

   

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  NOT eligible for any combined discount. Non-paying bidders 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 8+ 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 us to clean and  prepare every last piece before we drive them to the Inspection Station on the other side of the island.

This requirement 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.

Before you purchase After you Receive your Items.
LIVE PLANTS ARE PERISHABLE.

There is the risk when you grow plants that they may die. LIVE PLANTS are PERISHABLE, guaranteed not to live forever.

US orders ONLY are GUARANTEED LIVE ARRIVAL. All International orders are shipped at the BUYER's RISK!

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.

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.

NO REPLACEMENT WILL BE CONSIDERED IF YOU HAVE REPOTTED THE PLANT.

 IF YOU are NOT able to provide PROPER CARE, PLEASE DO NOT EXPECT plant to be GUARANTEED after it perishes.

BROWN THUMB WARNING:

Please Do NOT email me after a week after receiving and repotting your plant, and make a claim it arrived  damaged. All photo support must be as arrived in original condition  when received (in the box and packed as delivered).

If you repot your plant after delivery, all warranties are voided and no replacement is offered.  You should use good gardening skills and repot if desired but at buyer's risk and expense.

If repotted, you are responsible for the condition of the plant. NO REPLACEMENT or REFUND WILL BE CONSIDERED IF YOU HAVE REPOTTED THE PLANT.

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.

Rare Seeds

Fresh Highest  Quality

When you receive your seeds, you have only 7 days to make any claim. Once planted, seeds can NOT be returned and no refund is offered. All seed sales are final. There are no germination guarantees.

Seller warrants seed to be of the variety and quantity advertised. 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, refunds, returns and exchanges will be  made at the sole discretion of the seller.

  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..
