I ordered a number of plants from this place a few months ago ...it took over 12 weeks to get here and they were all dead all 60 plants. The price of plants were very attractive (ie. cheap)...so I bought a lot of plants.
I figure that the reason is due to the simple fact that they shipped out very VERY SMALL plants (nepenthes) that were packaged along with sopping wet towellettes. The water was too much in each of the plant bags and thus all the plants were dead (slimey and black) upon arrival.
They wouldn't give me my money back, but said they would apply a credit to a future order. I thought the lengthy delay was due to the shipping, but in fact it was Malesiana who took their time. I would never give them my business again, and am very disappointed in their lack of business ethics and a misleading website - showing large plants...when in fact, they send out tiny newly tissue cultured plantlets...smaller than the size of your baby finger nail!
