In June of 2006 my friend and I took a trip to Exotic Plumeria. She spent close to $350 for 6 cuttings. My friend bought me 3 cuttings for my birthday. 5 of the six cuttings died immediately. The 6th, a $160.00 cutting, is the only one that survived-thank heaven! I emailed him twice, but he refused to do anything about it. We did everything right trying to root these cuttings but since they were cut too short (6-8") and too green, they died. We swore we'd never buy from them again and knowlingly didnt.

I will make this brief. I wrote because I feel forums like this have useful information to buyers. We live in a selfish society where everyone is just out to make a buck. I dont like to see people burned. I can assure you, Im not a competitor or agent trying to "gain some sort of competitive advantage". Im a Plumeria collector because I love the plant. I've never, ever sold one plant or cutting and have over 70 named plants and 50+ seedlings. That just sounds like paranoia. You also state that you sell "unrooted cuttings wholesale to nurseries but not rooted trees". That's not what your website says:
Why did I wait two years? I didnt. As I stated, I emailed you twice. Once being within the 90 days, the second some time later. I once bought some cuttings from a company (who I've since bought many, many others from) and one didnt look very good. They told me to water it, and if it didnt make it, they'd replace it. Well, it worked and it was fine. If I were a liar, I could have very easily told them it died and received another one. I dont operate that way. I sleep well at night with a clear conscious because I'm honest in dealing with other human beings.

It is with some trepidation that I respond to this comment. In doing so I am participating in a process which I feel is significantly flawed. First of all, bulletin boards like this lend themsleves to unsavory actions by individuals who have malice in their heart for whatever reason (see comment below). Please understand I am not accusing you of this at this time. I am simply setting the environment for my response to you and whoever should read this.

The package came with $26 postage due. Difficulty contacting them.

The nursery is about an hour's drive from my new home. I wanted to purchase 3 plumeria, but since it was only an hour I figured I would make the drive and hand pick my plumeria. The Saturday I drove there only 1 person was working, helping someone already and 2 more waiting besides me. We tried wandering through the nursery ourselves, but since very little is labeled it is not a 'help yourself' type. We waited, looked and waited some more. Finally left when the one person was still helping the same individual from when we arrived, could not offer us any one else to help (we interupted, apoligized and asked) and he could not even point us in any direction for the 3 plants we wanted (asked for that too). We left and e-mailed the owner. He replied he would look into it, but that is all. He did not even offer to hand pick the 3 we wanted and ship them to us. The owner even advertises plumeria is all he grows. Not true - I saw several palms and other tropicals in pots. I am sure they were for sale though there was no one to ask. So Mahola for nothing.

I am still waiting for my order after a month. After making numerous phone attempts I finally got a hold of someone who said I would receive it early this week and it still hasn't arrived. No one has bothered to follow up with me. At this point I will be happy just to get my money back.

Poor Communication: Website stated item would ship immediately. Credit card charged immediately, yet my order shipped almost 3 weeks later, after numerous emails and calls. During this time, I spoke with owner who said the package had already shipped. Infact the package had not even shipped when he made this statement! It shipped a week later after yet another email. This was frustrating to say the least.

I just read another posters comments and review on Exotic Plumeria and feel they were harsh in their review. The person could have just laid out the facts and left out alot of their emotional extras. I also have had a bad experience dealing with Exotic Plumeria, since I do not want to rant about it I will condense it.

Absoulutely the worst business people that I have ever, ever delt with. The product I ordered came in with Mealy bugs and yellowing leaves, the Singapore plant I bought was suppose to be fully rooted in 3gal. When I receved the shipping tube, not a box this wrinkly, twiggy, nasty cutting came out, it had yellowish leaves and mealy bugs on the tips and on the back side of the leaves, and there were no roots at all, there was a callous and that was it.
