Expert level grower- spent close to $100- on many types seeds (ssp of plants I've grown from seed many times). Not one seed sprouted. Sent many emails, only one reply explaining the seeds were "older". The only offer for resolution was that perhaps in the future, should they get more, they could send me other seeds. Save your money! I'm dealing with my financial institution now because this is clearly fraud. Had I known other people had similar problems in the same time frame, I would've spoken up sooner.

Well ordering is one issue, the other is of delivery. I had ordered with them in April 2016 and since then all I have been doing is following up. They didn't even bother to reply to my emails, leave apart the delivery of seeds. They have cheated me of my money with no order delivery.

WOULD HIGHLY VOTE AGAINST PURCHASING FROM , A complete unprofessional bunch of crooks

Back in October 2015, I ordered 4 different type of Drosera seeds and a mixed package of VFT seeds from rarexoticseeds website. I planted the seeds along w another Drosera seeds from Ebay. The Ebay seeds germinated great, but none of the seeds from Rarexoticseeds germinated to this date. I emailed my disappointment to the company contact email and got NO reply back regarding their nonviable seeds. I have grown carnivorous plants from seeds and cuttings for many years and am not a newbie. I would NOT recommend this company to anyone. Ebay sellers are more reliable then this company.

I´ve bought 17 species of Drsoera to germinate and only one species have germinated. I expended almost 100 dollars with that. I´m experienced in Drosera germination. I waited a year to be sure that the seeds would note germinate and complaiened to the site that gave no responses...
Please, if You think I may be have done some mistake You can ask the Ontario Carnivorous Plant Society for the reputation of this disclamer. I would have better done that before.

Recently ordered 25 seeds of 4 varieties of ADENIUM. Disappointed with the results. Germination rate was zero percent. Expect that seeds were not fresh as they did not "plump" up when soaked in water the appropriate time prior to sowing.

Last year I purchased $36 worth of seeds (most of them were passionfruit seeds) and I never received them. The owner said that the package had been sent and was not willing to send the tracking information or resend the seeds. Since the purchase did not include the insurance and by the time I thought to call the credit company, three months had already passed. (I waited for three months because I thought the package would take a longer period of time to travel from Canada to California, and also because the agricultural sanitation would take two more weeks.)

If you want a tracking number, you need to buy the registered package option. If you want a phytosanitary certificate you can also buy it. At Rarexoticseeds clients are responsable to order what they need to import the seeds. Everything is offered. All information is on the website."
