I am a hobbiest grower, living in NE Mississippi (Zone 8A). I grow and sell numerous tropical plant species but specialize in orchids, staghorn and elkhorn ferns, bromeliads, and plumeria. Check out http://www.tropicalplantsandmore.com to see what I have avalable.

Just a delight to deal with!!! With a bad economy, low store inventories and small specialty nurseries out of business purchasing on the internet has become a part of life. And it can be a very frustrating experience. But, Ken has made purchasing plants such a pleasure I don't believe I will look anywhere else. His plants are well established, healthy and at least of his orchids are quite large for the price he charges. The most important aspect is the customer service, Ken is more like a helpful friend that an internet business. He is always willing to answer questions and give helpful suggestions. It is a comfort to have knowledge and experience available when you need it.
The plants that were sent were the largest I ever receive by mail order. Laminated color labels, with instructions, quick and excellent packaging. What a nice way to introduce your nursery with such high quality samples of cannas and ginger. Thank you, Ken! AAAAA!!!

Absolutely a delight to deal with and the plants are A+++++. The roots on the Canna and Gingers were amazingly huge.
I have grown some for years that don't compare to the ones Ken sent. I absolutely will do business with him again.

Both canna and ginger were packaged exceptionally well. Even though the plants were free, the care that was taken in how he presented his company by sending quality plants , laminated labels, complete instructions included. Very well packed. And I can't say enough about Ken. Just very well represented all the way around. Thank you Ken.

I bought some cannas and ginger from Ken,nice size plants and in very good condition,I will definitely purchase from Ken again.
Well packaged and fast response on delivery as well,so check him out before you buy anywhere else to see if he has just what your looking for,you won't be disappointed you did.
I enjoyed the whole process of purchasing from Ken! He's very passionate about his plants and willing to educate novice growers like me at the drop of a hat.
I purchased 2 plumeria cuttings from him, and when he says a cutting is "nice & plump," well, I was just amazed at the cuttings I got -- over an inch in diameter and a good 18 inches in length. One had a developing inflorescence, and he wanted to give me every chance of seeing that one bloom. He packed that tip in bubble wrap, egg crate, more bubble wrap, and packing peanuts. I don't think that cutting knew it had been shipped, LOL.
I also bought a Tillandsia from him, a beautiful creature, exactly as he described and looking far more likely to survive than my Philly Flower Show specimens.
I didn't purchase any of the orchids that I think are his main love, but I did enjoy drooling over the photos on his website!
