Shipping and Handling
Standard Processing and Shipping Timelines
When can I expect my order to ship?
We expect orders to ship within 5-10 business days given current policies and procedures to protect the health and safety of our fulfillment team. Once each package is out the door, you’ll automatically receive tracking information so you can keep an eye out for it. Once in transit, packages take 1-4 business days to arrive. We do not have control over carrier service disruptions or delays once shipped.
Plants and botanicals that are part of the same order may ship separately from different locations, so your order could arrive in multiple packages on slightly different timelines. You'll receive order tracking information for each item once shipped.
Note: We carry an assortment of products from independent makers and brands that share our aesthetic, values, and vibe. These products ship directly from the third party vendor or artisan within 5-10 business days, unless noted otherwise on the product page.

If you need to make a change to your order please contact us as soon as possible. We process orders quickly but will do our best to address your request.

If I order more than one plant will they ship separately?

Returns and Replacements
What is your return policy?
Every plant is fragile and the shipping process is not always kind (or easy). Most of the time we get it right, but sometimes we don't. When that happens, we fix it — be it a damaged plant or pot due to shipping carrier mishandling — with the ultimate objective of making our customers happy. If you're not happy with your recent purchase, please fill out our contact form and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. The form ensures we have what’s needed to help you as soon as possible! In the unlikely event a plant is received dead on arrival, it will always be replaced.
What is your price adjustment policy?
If you purchased an item at full price and within 3 days of purchase, the price drops, you can contact us to refund the difference. Items that were originally purchased at a discount are not eligible for price adjustments.
We cannot retroactively apply discount codes at this time, meaning we cannot honor a past sale price once the sale has ended.
