Frequently Asked Questions

Will my flower look exactly like the flower I see in the listing?

Not always, as with all living things, there are variations in blooms that occur in orchids grown from seeds. So even orchids in the same variety of a hybrid may all produce different colors, petal shapes, bloom size and/or patterns. Orchids are bred and rebred until a prefect flower is achieved, but the only way to pass that exact flower along is through cloning and dividing. Unless the listing notes that the photo of the flower is the actual plant for sale or the plant is a clone, the bloom you receive may be slightly or totally different from what our best guess (the photo used to give you an idea) was.

Shipping statement

We are not responsible for the handling of the package by the shipping company, including but not limited to any lost, delays or damage to the package. If you have an issue related to shipping, please file a claim with the shipping company and include the tracking number provided.

Do you guarantee spikes, buds or blooms?

We cannot guarantee that any spikes, buds or blooms on live orchids will remain intact during shipping, but we will pack as carefully as possible. Also, we can't guarantee that orchids advertised as in spike, bud or bloom will still have that flower stage when you actually buy them. The plants continue to grow while they are waiting to be purchased and an orchid that starts in spike may well be in bud or bloom before it is packaged and shipped to you. If you need an orchid in a certain flower stage, please ask before you purchase.

Reviews (6)


Nice healthy little plant, very well packaged.

Orchids appeared stressed and dehydrated but after 24 hrs I noticed a little improvement.

This was my second purchase form this seller, and while not every orchid arrived perfectly, the seller was so kind, and sent me replacements of the ones that had been damaged in shipping. Much better customer service than I have had on Etsy in the past. Would absolutely recommend this shop to a friend.
