Who Are We? We've Been Building and Growing the Hobby, Since 2001.

  • We are a micro-business, owned by a woman. No sponsors. No outside ads. No affiliates. No competition.

  • What we offer is authentically ours. Truly and completely different - just like YOU - a LOT of our products you just can't find anywhere else.

  • We are environmentally conscious. Most of our non-plant products are durable, reusable, and can be rejuvenated easily.

  • Our shipping methods are the best in the business - we GUARANTEE our plants when shipped via Priority Mail for FREE <- we are that good.

  • We are registered with the USDA for out-of-state-shipping because we CARE about the health of our natural forests.

Our Main Mission: We treat you how we would want to be treated.

Shipping Info:

"How do you ship plants safely?"

Well, we have a secret called Steve. We are so confident in Steve, together with the Priority Mail Shipping method, we are able guarantee plants during shipment.

"How will you send my order?"

You have a choice when checking out of the online store now! USPS now offers different ways to ship your order.

"Do you really guarantee your plants during shipment? No one else does that."

All our items are guaranteed during shipment because we have Steve with Priority Mail. :o) Sometimes we have to wait until any major weather passes to ship plant material. And, sometimes we need to wait until the weekend passes to ship it - but it will get there in perfect condition! (Note that we can only guarantee plants shipped by Priority Mail.)

"How long does it take to get my order?"

It depends what shipping method you choose but for our end, it normally takes about 3 to 5 days to pack and get it the post office. During the busiest months in spring, it can take up to a week to get the order processed and shipped. Let us know if you need it faster and we'll make it happen (within reason.)

Priority Mail takes 2 to 3 days and doesn't stress out the plant material.

Ground Advantage is supposed to take 3 to 5 days but it is taking up to 7 days, and sometimes can take up to 12 days in some areas. This can put a LOT of stress on the plants which is why we strongly recommend (and guarantee) Priority Mail for shipping live plants.

Love our Work but Love to Lurk?

We've been sharing FREE content, inspiration, eye candy, laughs, relevant information and honest insight into this new hobby since 2001. While we do enjoy it, we do this for a living and research takes time and money.

We don't earn anything from outside advertising nor from any affliate links. All research and development of this hobby has been self-funded, (with 0 vacation-time!) If you've been lurking and loving us from afar, now you can help us keep the dance alive or just to say "THANKS for the boatloads of info-tainment and inspiration!"
