All domestic orders are shipped in padded, priority mail envelopes or in USPS priority mail boxes. We ship all year and most orders are shipped within 3 business days.
A large amount of our business is comprised of foreign orders. The USDA now requires a PHYTOSANITARY CERTIFICATE which is a document that certifies that the seeds have been inspected and meet the permit requirements of your country. The fee for a certificate is $35.00 and is added to the cost of your order. It is your responsibility to provide us with any permits that may be required by your country. If you are not sure you can contact your department of agriculture to inquire if your order has restrictions.
General growing care
When caring for your tropical seeds, using the proper soil mixture is of the utmost importance. Well draining soil mixtures that are comprised of 15% sand or perlite are usually the best type to use for most of our products. Most require bright light and humidity and can be grown indoors but thrive better outdoors. Growing instructions are already on the product that you order from us. In many cold regions growing indoors with warm greenhouse conditions and high intensity lighting has become a common practice. To grow in an average home it may require you to become creative by selecting an addequate space to grow that can also handle humidity levels that can be quite high and the installation of sufficient lighting.
