How is my plant packaged & shipped out?

Your plant’s journey is a priority for us and we want to ensure that it arrives safely to you. Each plant is boxed individually and will be sent with the pot you have ordered. If you have only ordered the plant, it will be sent in its black plastic pot. The boxes we use match the size of the plant you have ordered. We have boxes in the sizes micro, small, medium and large. You will get the box size that matches your plant size!

Our plants leave the nursery in Queensland with enough water to last its journey to its new home.  We also use coir fibre, which is a natural fibre from the husk of a coconut and is totally biodegradable and environmentally friendly. It also helps to hold in the extra moisture to the plant when it leaves our nursery and is a super cute addition to your new plant (you can use it to prop your plant up in its pot or nestle around it to add some more aesthetic appeal). Your plant will also come with a fact sheet – so be sure to keep your eyes out for this!

Minimal waste and environmentally friendly packaging is a priority for us. All the materials we use in the packing are biodegradable or can be recycled. We use Fastway couriers who know the delicate nature of our plants. If they need to be left unattended, they will be left in a secure, shady spot.
