I have ordered from Mr. Green several times and have been very pleased with the cuttings I have received.

The one thing I really love about ordering from Mr. Green is that shipping is included in the cost of the cuttings, so you just add up the cost of the cuttings and you know what you will owe.

Mr. Green is also very quick to reply to emails regarding plant availability.

Mr. Green has a great sense of humor and is great to deal with.
Order with complete confidence.

Ted Green has an amazing selection of hoyas to choose from...many of which he has collected in the wild and some which he has published. He is a communicator and a good businessman as well as providing excellent plant material! I have always been pleased with material I have received from him!!!!

I thought Mr. Green had a huge selection & a very nice website. I placed a very large order & some of my cuttings were never sent...& there was no explanation as to why they weren't sent. Also, it seemed like there were quite a few substitutions...that is something I'm not crazy about. He is fun to deal with I guess...but not enough of the cuttings "made it" for me to order from him again. .I found it to be an expensive lesson , since many of the cuttings never rooted...or died of a virus, that was apparent on the leaves when they arrived. I tried Plant green Research 3 times...I am leary about going with him again.
Company representative comment on June 2, 2009:
On Jun 2, 2009 8:55 AM, Green: Plant Research responded with:

I have checked both our national and international orders and find that we have never had a single order from a Shielasouth.

We do not check for virus but to the best of my knowledge I have never shipped a cutting suspected as being viritic.

We never make substitutions without the consent of the buyer and they are always named and approved, beforehand. As for not providing the cuttings ordered, this is hard to believe for I correct any mis-shipment immediately.

I believe that Shielasouth is a fictious name and the comments are scurrilous and meant solely to harm my 30 year old business - one with a very good track record.

Ted Green was a pleasure to order cuttings from. The shipping was VERY fast and the box arrived in great
condition. He even included a nice personal note with
the order, wishing me luck on rooting. The cuttings were
in great shape and all rooted well. One of them even
bloomed from a peduncle it had before it had even rooted !
What a plus !
Very easy ordering experience; I am extremely satisfied.
Will order again...

I have ordered several times from Ted Green and I have always been VERY pleased with both his selection, and the quality of the cuttings I received from him. He only sells cuttings, however, mine are usually over a foot in legnth. He is always prompt with shipping and the selection can not be beat! Shipping fees are also figured right into the cost of the plants so there are no bothersome shipping calculations or added packaging fees.
