Questions? Get the dirt here!

How will my plant arrive?

Our number one priority is that our plants arrive in happy, healthy condition. Most of our plants ship in their nursery grow pot, some of our plants ship directly potted in our earthenware plants, while others ship in their nursery grow pot placed inside the planter. How each plant ships is noted on its product page.

What if my order is a gift?

First, lucky them! Second, on our cart page you’ll find an option to add a note. You can rest assured that all orders are shipped without pricing information and include a care card for plant care instructions. Don’t worry, we won’t spoil what the surprise is or send them any marketing emails.

Do I have to repot my plant once it arrives?

The short answer is, no. First, let your plant acclimate to its new environment. Place the plant in the spot you plan to keep it in. Let it settle in for about two weeks.

After two weeks, your plant has adjusted - your home’s light levels and temperature differ from a greenhouse! - and you can pot it into its ceramic planter, if you choose. You might notice your plant’s earthenware planter is wider than the plant’s nursery pot. This space is for your plant to grow into, should you choose to repot it. But remember, this is optional: as long as your plant still has room to grow in its nursery grow pot, and looks happy and healthy, you don’t need to lift a finger!

For some, the mantra ‘plant care is self care’ means the convenience of leaving it in the nursery grow pot and for others, it may mean getting your hands dirty to repot. Do what works best for you! Do not be afraid to try different methods for different plants.

Why does my planter not have a drainage hole?

Most of our plants ship in their nursery grow pot to allow for a safe ride to your doorstep. Added bonus: grow pots have drainage holes so you don’t have to be as mindful when you water. They also give you the ability to use decorative planters that don’t have holes – à la cachepot. Our line of earthenware planters do not have drainage holes. The decorative planter serves as a saucer, catching excess water that drains out.

Tip: when watering your plant, add no more than 1/3 of the planter’s volume in water, to avoid over watering. Best practice is to feel the potting mix a few inches down first, and only water if the soil is dry.

Why does my plant look different from the website?
