I have ordered over a dozen plants from him and every time I do business with him it is a pleasure. He is extremely friendly and helpful, and he knows a hell of a lot about bamboo. He has answers whenever I have questions. The negative feedback above just sounds like people who have nothing better to do than get angry at someone for something petty.
The plants I have received are healthy and doing great, and you can't find cheaper bamboo anywhere else.. at least as far as I am aware- and I have searched a lot.

Excellent Experience! Good product at a very good price. I purchased 4 Asian Lemon Bamboos and a Dwarf Buddha Belly in 3 gallon pots. I emailed them several times and called to ask questions. They were very helpful and honest; everything was as they said it would be. I added their website to “My Favorites” and I will definitely buy from them again.
Wow! I cannot believe what I have just read! YOU used an image that someone else owned and used it to SELL your plants moreover than to educate the public so I find your comment to be most out of place, I would never do business with you! I am sure you will log in and reply by saying I am not one of your customers so my opinion does not matter, but you rest assured, I would have been a customer, had you not been such an A** someone trying EDUCATE the public on what these plants look like!Company representative comment on March 31, 2011: On Mar 31, 2011 3:23 PM, Green Thumb Palms (Greenthumbpalms.com) responded with:
I talked to Nate on the phone yesterday, as he was a gentelman and called to talk out our issue, (thanks Nate) and of course I apologised to him and explained that it was not done on purpose. I had tried a few new bamboo species last year and had a girl list them for me, she used my computer and grabed that pic accidentally. I never heard anything from Nate until i got that neg feedback. and that was what i thought was unfair. I would have gladly given nate credit or removed the pic, but I never knew there was a problem. I dont appreciate people giving me neg feedback WHO DONT KNOW ME, HAVE NEVER SPOKE TO ME AND HAVE NEVER DELT WITH ME. I never sold 1 single plant from Nates Picture, and dont even offer that species for sale anymore. And yes believe it or not people do use my site as an educational tool. Only a small % of visitors to my site buy something, the others learn something and leave. Peace

I have asked them to work something out with me in a very cordial way concerning the fact that they are using some of my photos without my permission they have yet to respond. I get really irritated when there is no regard to my rights.
Here is my proof.

He has since removed the picture that I asked him to remove. I haven't received an apology yet but he has done what I asked him to do.Company representative comment on March 31, 2011: On Mar 30, 2011 8:42 AM, Green Thumb Palms (Greenthumbpalms.com) responded with:
whoever you are, you are not a customer and i have never done business with you, nor do I know you, or know of you. You never contacted me by email. My email address is everywhere and you never used it. Instead you chose to trash my reputation at a place where I have worked to build it up with years of solid business practices. I have a huge collection of bamboo pictures that i have kept through the years, most are originals but some are good web pics. I am soooo soooo soooo sorry that one of your pictures accidentally got on my site. Truely I want nothing to do with you or your pictures. So sorry that one of your pictures was used to educate people on what that specific bamboo looks like. now that pic is removed and people can just imagine. I am trying to share my love and collection of bamboo with like minded growers. You are obviously not a like minded grower, nor a customer so please just leave me alone.

Nate is a good guy and I have apologised to him for the accidental use of his picture. I truely never knew of the issue until recently and responded immediately. he is a like minded bamboo lover and we are very easily friends.
