Where do you ship your postage plants to?
We currently use Express Shipping to send plants to postcodes
within QLD, NSW, SA, VIC or ACT. We don't ship to any other states due to
Quarantine Laws which prohibit plant material being sent across their borders.
I want to send a plant as a gift- can you do this?
Unfortunately we are not a florists, so we do not offer 'gift delivery'. If you choose to send a plant as a gift please note these will not be wrapped as gifts, they will come bare. At this stage we do not have the manpower to be able to offer this service and won't recognise plants being sent as gifts. Our delivery information can be found in our 'Shipping' section for more information.
How will I know how to care for my plants?
We don't believe in plant tags- the issue is they are made in Victoria so the information only tailors to one part of Australia's plentiful climate! For information on how to care for your plant, please use the 'Chat with Us' or 'Contact Us' pages on our website with your location and we'll tailor the perfect plant plan for you!

Will I receive a plant like the one photographed?
All plants on our website are our own
plants. Your plant will be picked from the same batch of plants as the one
photographed. Please keep in mind plants are grown (not made!) so they will have slight differences.
My plants look like they are in a ‘Death Plug’. Should I be concerned?
Please read our blogs on at to learn more. There’s no need to panic!
How are your plants packed?
We use a method with a 100% success rate in shipping our
plants. We like to pack very tightly using bubble wrap and sticky tape to make sure your plants do not move at all inside the box. Although it would be great for plants not to be as squished, they will absorb the shock if dropped or mishandled.
What do I do after I receive my shipped plants
The best thing is to take your plants out of the box IMMEDIATELY.
Unwrap your plants carefully and give them a water. If there are any damaged leaves, give them a snip (all plants will lose leaves eventually - this isn’t cause for concern) and leave them in bright indirect light. It may take a little while for your plants to straighten out after being packed in a box, but this ensures your plant arrives safely.
