I have ordered quite a few aroids from this company through their web site and off ebay from them as well. Have always been pleased with the product, shipping prices, and packaging. Great communication between them and me.

I have obtained 3 elephant ears from Brandy @ A&B Tropicals and am very happy with my purchases. The plants were healthy and vibrant as well as packed in a professional manner . Brandy answered all my questions in a detailed and timely manner . I will defiantly be buying from A&B again and would highly recommend them to anyone interested in fantastic plants at great prices .

Can't say enough good things about this company. For the price best banana deals, since these people seem to grow up there TC starts a little bigger than other companies before they sell them. Also ordered a bulb of A.'Borneo Giant' a few months ago, I put that sucker on top of the water heater in some damp soil, and now it's leafing out huge.

I was quite happy with their service, they were very polite and responded to my questions. I won't say what types of "special arrangements" they made for my order, because then they'll be flooded with business by other wingnuts like me, but I will say that they accomodated me in every way possible. It was not even a big order, only two plants, but I will definately order from them again.

I received an Alocascia order and it was in great condition, despite our hot weather, it was not even wilted.

I have ordered several plants from this company on 2 seperate occasions and have been very happy with them. Their prices are reasonable and the plants recieved were healthy and well packaged. I also like the fact that they accept Paypal which makes ordering easier. The only problem I had was that on checkout, it didn't automatically figure my shipping discount for more than 1 item but when contacted, they did refund the difference.I am sure that I will do business with them again.

Placed an order. After a short period of time they refunded my money due to some circumstances out of their control. I was pleased that THEY took the initiative to refund and contact me instead of me having to followup.

Just received my second order this month from A&B Tropicals. I can't say enough about how happy I am with everything I received. This is a great company! Best of all I paid about half of what others were asking for the same EE's and got plants that were easily double the size. Very fast shipping and great packing.
Warning, A&B will spoil you and you have to keep going back for more!

I ordered 2 plants from Andy and Brandy on eBay. They arrived within 4 days, very healthy, and a bargain at twice the price. I am very impressed with their large selection and fast service, along with a great guarantee. I will be using them again next Spring. They don't rip you off on postage either! That's a huge bonus there. I'm happy.

I've ordered twice this past month from Brandy. The plants were great and she's so helpful. After I received the first order and was so happy with it, I ordered six more Alocasias.

Talk about instant gratification. I ordered 6 different elephant ears on Saturday and they arrived the following Wednesday morning despite Brandy having had oral surgery. Everything arrived securely packed and in perfect order. They will definately have my business in the future. AAAAA++++

I had planned on buying elephant ears and a super dwarf banana tree. My e-mails were quickly answered and Brandy was very helpful.

After awhile, I settled on only purchasing elephant ears. I sent the check on March 11th and received my plants on March 31st.

I am very pleased and definitely would consider ordering from them again in the future.

I am so thrilled with my first purchase from this company. I ordered a couple of plants on Sunday, received a confirmation the following day, and my plants were on my doorstep on Thursday (4 days from start to finish). The packaging was excellent, the plants exceptional, and prices that just can't be beat. The $8.00 S&H charge included overnight delivery for two plants, one of which was 2-1/2 to 3' tall, VERY REASONABLE. I can't sing their praises enough, a real class act! A and B Tropicals will be my go to place for the exotics they carry.

I recently received a White Bat Plant as a gift from a friend that came from this nursery. The plant was in excellent condition. If anything the company overpacked!! hehehe They used a HUGE, long Priority Mail box and the plant was stuck in the bottom. I had a heck of a time getting it out!! It came quickly and this companies prices are not exorbitant!! The only think is that the plant did not come with very much information--though they did include their contact info (email address, mailing address, phone #, website address, etc)!! I give this company a HUGE thumbs up!! Thanks!!

This was my first order with A&B, I ordered a few banana trees and I was pleasently surprised! The trees were 3 - 4 foot tall, in very nice condition and the roots were in soil (wrapped in plastic, but not bare root). I've paid more for much less of a tree from other companies, even the shipping was inexpensive. I will be ordering again from them.

I ordered several things from the web site and received a prompt email advising me that one of items was out of stock.
The owner has a brand new baby and had not had time to update her site. I picked a substitute and then received another email that grasshoppers had destroyed another plant I'd ordered. Picked another substitute and everything arrived in good shape and packed well - she threw in an extra plant to make up for the plants that were not available. Brandy is the "B" of A&B and is very easy to deal with - I would not hesitate to order from them again.

Ordered several plants from this company thru eBay. Very nice quality plants - and very good communication.

Had a problem with one of the plants (Colocasia - not cold-hardy at all - was damaged in mid-winter shipment) - they were extremely helpful and followed up to make sure everything was okay!

Overall, I'm very satisfied with A & B Tropicals and will do business again!
