This is my first time ordering from Bouncing Bear. I ordered a kilo of Ayahuasca vines and have been waiting for them to come in.

I placed my order over a week ago (order number 129776)
and got an email saying that it had been shipped. I'm a little worried because it's been a full week since I got the email, but it hasn't arrived yet.

For now my review is neutral, but I'll change it to positive as soon as my order arrives.

On August 12th, 2009, astral_stardust changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:

The package just came in today, so I changed my review to a positive. Apperantly the postal service lost it, so BBB reshipped it with UPS the second time at no extra charge.

The vines are in excellent condition and I also received a complimentary package of K2 blend. I'll definitely be ordering again in the future.

I just rechecked the package and saw that they also added in some complimentary Syrian Rue as well. Thanks, guys!

I ordered from Bouncing Bear Botanicals, and was impressed with the speed with which it was processed and shipped. In fact, when I received the box I wasn't sure what it was at first, because I thought there was no way I could place an order online on a Tuesday and receive my package that same week. I just placed another order, and I hope that everything goes as smoothly this time as well!

I placed an order on May 21st for a live Salvia divinorum plant and it arrived July 17th. Four days short of TWO months later, I received the plant. I figured this is going to be a huge plant if they are letting it grow this long. When I opened up the package the plant was no more than 4 inches tall with only two decent sized leaves, the rest were tiny. When I picked up the plant out of the package the two decent sized leaves fell right off. Half of each leaf was black. But I am good with plants, I figured it would grow. I put it into a humidity tent I built around a pot. I had great soil and plenty of filtered light. Gave it some bottled water and waited. The next day all of the leaves were black and fell off, the only thing that remand was the stem and a few small leaves, which most were black. I contacted BB the next day about how small and terrible the plant was that they sent me and that they didnt send me the extract that customers are suppose to get if they wait for 4 weeks. I haven't got a response back and the plant is completely dead. It didnt even last past the first day I had it. Absolutely terrible plant. BB took my time and money and ran with it. I would STRONGLY suggest not to buy Salvia Divinorum plants from here! Very very disappointed! Here is a pic of the plant when I put it into the pot. The next day 3/4 of the stem was black.

On July 21st, 2009, hfnoodle added the following:

My order number is 123359. I would greatly appreciate it if you could reship the plant. I have used this soil for all my plants. It works really good for all of them. What kind of soid should I use instead. A mix of 2 part potting soil, 1 part verm, 1 part perlite? I kept the tent on the plant the entire time. I took the picture right after I planted it and then put the dome over it right away. If it would of lasted long I am sure it would have pulled through but it started out in really bad shape.
On July 22nd, 2009, hfnoodle changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following:

I got the notification of the order reshipment. I greatly appreciate this Jon. Hopefully this plant will be in alot better shape than the first one. Thank you again.

I received my second plant on August 7th. And WOW what a difference. BBB sure out did themselves with this one. They went from sending me a plant with one or two tiny leaves, to a plant that was twice the size and with leaves the size of my hand and multiple of them. The plant is growing real fast and is in great shape. Great job BBB! I will definitely do business with again.

I don't see any e-mails about missing the extract or anything. If you can, use the contact form on the site, which should make it easier/less risk of a lost e-mail:

Anyway. Sorry for the trouble with your plant. In that picture, it looks like the top must have been broken in shipping. That right? That would explain the stalk turning black 3/4 of the way down (the stem is hollow and if it is cut or broken, it will dry and die back about two inches from the cut part).

If you let me know your order number, I can get that reshipped, though. Also, that soil looks... not Salvia friendly. If you can get a richer soil without all the compost, they will be much happier.

Oh. And also keep the humidity dome on that one. It should still make it and have new growth in the next 1 to 2 weeks as long as the slow black death creeping down the stalk doesn't get to the last node (don't cut off that dead part of the stem, by the way, or it will just make more of it die off).


On Jul 21, 2009 3:00 PM, Bouncing Bear Botanicals added:

Thanks. We'll get that reshipped next week. It likes a little heavier soil. I mix 1 part Miracle Gro Top soil with 1 part Miracle Gro potting soil. Works well.

I was kind of sketchy because I didn't want to be one of those people that waited a month to get their products but everything seems to be going fine. Also since its shipped its probably out of their hands now. Unless something goes drastically wrong and they have poor customer service I will leave this as a positive. Will update when package arrives.

Information is sent immediately to my email informing me of the status of the order and its location. Friday evening orders are no problem as it seems they process orders through the weekend. My first order was delivered as promised and the quality of the botanicals I ordered was first rate. I have ordered again from this company and will continue to do so. Thank you Bouncing Bear Botanicals for being so professional.

I placed an order for multiple items on may 2nd, totaling $101. I received most of my purchase promptly. However, my live salvia plant has yet to arrive. I made an inquiry on the 25th, and was told the following day that it would arrive within "the next few weeks." it is now nearly six weeks since I ordered and I can't seem to get an answer as to why things are taking so long. I can be patient, but I would just like to know what's happening, and when I can realistically expect my plant to ship. Transaction ID : 2416765117

I don't like being so unsure about a vendor, especially on such a large purchase, but if I could just get a strait answer, I would gladly recommend the site, and continue business with bbb in the future.

Sorry for the delay. I thought we had updated all the back ordered customers, sorry if we missed you somehow. It's a bit of a long story. the Clif's notes version: We moved recently and 3 days in the back of a hot, uninsulated truck does not make happy mother plants. A new shipment of plants from Mexico got held up by customs, a language barrier and a confused importer who planted them outside in Texas instead of just sending them on to us makes even less happy plants. We will be sending some tomorrow and, depending on how the rooting goes some more the following week. We're just going oldest to newest and... yours should be in this next shipment tomorrow.

Sorry for the trouble/delay.

My original order was some time in April, and it never arrived. They re-shipped it (and I'm betting that they lost money doing so, having to ship my $50 worth of merchandice twice, so I can't bring myself to make this a negative review) on May 5th. I gave up on waiting for it, went on vacation, and was told by people back at home that it finally came.

Initially, I was more than pleased with the speedy replies and how helpful their customer service was.
In the long run, while I am disappointed with the speed, I'm sure I'll be pleased with the quality once I return from vacation. If not, I'll come back and change it to negative. Otherwise, my review will stay neutral. Assume I enjoyed it. :)

The post office doesn't do true "tracking". It's a "delivery confirmation" number instead. It only shows when it's delivered or they've attempted delivery at least. Until that happens they won't show any information, generally. But it is on its way and should be there in the next day or so. Sorry for any confusion.

Im hopeful of BBB, their website is well set up, they carry a good variety of products when compared to other online retailers. Could use some price comparisons, and a few more of those hard to find herbs or additives.

Well the prob is that I ordered my product over the phone and there is no way to track it via. your website. I will call in today to try to see what we can do. No worries BBB, the customs agents dont work for you so you cant control what gets through!
I am going to change my rating to positive for two reasons:

1) EXCELLENT service so far
2) Im positive the people at BBB will make it right

Conclusion: You always risk ordering online, but its great to find a company that is willing to make sure the customer is satisfied! Order BBB ! ! !

What order # is your first order? That's probably stuck in customs, if it's taking that long. There should have been a customs form # entered into the comments of your order. You can login to your account and click on the order # to view the comments. You can use that number to find what the hold up is with customs or when they released it. Sorry for the trouble.

I ordered some Cacti and they shipped immediately. They arrived promptly. They were buy 2 get 1 free on sale so it's hard to complain that one of the 3 was ever so slightly short and not rooted, but they replied to my email complaint immediately and offered to make it right now or at my next order. I'm still waiting for my Bufo, but tracking confirms it has been shipped and I'm confident it will arrive promptly (wouldn't want it sitting in a warehouse over the weekend so I'm glad they waited to ship it). It has been a pleasure doing business with them and I look forward to doing more!

As a new customer, I recently placed an order with BBB (on 10/26/08) for 2 of their ethnobotanical products (1oz. Dream Herb & 1oz. Salvia Foliage). I received an email confirming my order that same day, and everything appeared to be going smoothly. Then - on 10/27/08 I received an email stating that my order had been shipped, and thus, I was satisfied with the ordering process so far, as I anxiously awaited for my order.
On 10/29/08 A discreet package arrived on my doorstep. "Wow, Fast shipping!" I thought to myself. However, upon opening the box I discovered that my Salvia was missing and is apparently being shipped separately? I checked the website to see as to why this is, but found no information regarding this matter.
The box I received only contained half of my order, and so at this point, I am only half-satisfied. It would have been nice if they had explained that on the website (or in the confirmation/shipping email) so that I would have expected the separate package prior to ordering. I shall update this comment to positive as soon as I receive the remainder of my order...

On October 31st, 2008, Manannan changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:

Thanks for the reply Jon! Much appreciated!!
I almost figured that was the case, but I was thinking that all items were now shipping from NS and so I didn't expect the slight delay.
Sure enough folks, the rest of my order was delivered the following day (10/30/08) and so I have now changed my rating to "Positive"!
I can now say that I am very impressed with the speed of this company's shipping and the quality of their customer service as well! All of my items arrived in good condition, and so BBB can definitely expect more business from me (and those whom I shall now recommend to their wonderful online shop) in the near future! Thanks again BBB!

Kansas made Salvia illegal, so we had to move the Salvia portion of the company to Nebraska. Both packages ship the same day generally and usually arrive within 1 day of eachother, if not the same day.

I have placed several orders with BBB and with the exception of a Post Office screw up (which they took care of quickly even though it wasn't their responsibility) I have always received great products in quick time. In fact I ordered a plant that was marked 2-4 weeks before shipping and it arrive two DAYS later. They have made a return customer out of me.

That was shipped August 13th. You had chosen basic shipping, which, to Ukraine, is real slow. If it's not there by the end of this week, though, let me know and we can reship. Normally we can only guarantee Express orders outside the U.S. since customs and foreign mail can be so unreliable.

This is the best online vendor ever! Since i added my original comment I have order from Bouncing Bear at least five or six times, and every time the items are received on time and a lot of time ahead of schedule. I no longer order from any other vendor. The best part about BB is the customer service. They are always extremely nice and very efficient. I recommend using Bouncing Bear for all of your future online purchases. I am also seriously considering opening my own online Ethnobotanical shop, and if I do I will start out by buying wholesale from BB. Thanks very much for the great service!!! Karma+++

I emailed the company thru their website inquiry and am waiting a response back... This is my first negative experience with the company and their products are of reliable and exceptional quality, I would just like this order to arrive in a timely fashion, I will post again when I recieve the order and if any correspondance or customer services were performed.

Excelent response time! Next day response to my delayed shipment, one of my items heppened to be on back order before the site was updated, but no worrys since my response was prompt, personal, and reassuring. This is a great company to do business with, the only thing is you must take initiative to inquire about delayed shipment (which you should anyway as a responsible consumer!). Two thumbs up!
