I bought a synsepalum dulcificum bush from Perry at the beginning of May. He promised that he'd send me a plant of at least two feet tall and he also told me that he'd ship it on the 6th of May, which he did! The plant arrived three days later and was almost three feet tall and was in perfect health!! I am 100% happy with ordering from Flora Exotica and I definitely WILL buy from him from now on! Thank you so very much, Perry!!

I contacted Perry many times and he mostly never or rarely answer emails. I had a few questions concerning my order but, I never obtained satisfaction. Each email brought its load of confusion, price changing, unknown shipping cost, etc,. plus some long waiting days before I could reach him.

I really did more than my best to conclude a transaction for plants. Finally, earlier today, I insisted to use UPS as suggested by Perry, instead of Canada Post who doesn't deliver anymore to home in my sector. I asked Perry to get informed about the shipping cost because, I had no idea of the weight and box size he would use for shipping.

The guy told he had no time to deal with this and asked I fix it myself with UPS, he was using Canada Post, that's it. There were so many mistakes in his emails, price changing, etc,. that it provoked an avalanche of emails to clarify the situation.

Flora Exotica is not to be recommended as far as I'm concerned.

Finally, I came to an agreement with Perry, ordered a few plants and was more than satisfied about the fast delivery and quality. I repotted my two Impatiens siamniamensis and they nicely recover from the shipping stress. Flora Exotica is definitely the place I recommend.

I have severe Winter Blues, and I discovered that blooming plants help me a lot. I started locking for some Tropical plants that will bloom in Fall and Winter here in Canada, but it is not easy because it is not too popular to care for houseplants here.Recently I ordered 7 Tropical plants from // I found many of them here that I wanted. Plants were shipped to me from Montreal. I had hard time to believe they'll be OK. And today I've got all of them in perfect condition. I am so happy. Thank you very much. They are just adorable and exactly as on the description.. Now I will order plants by the Internet without hesitation. Thanks again

Last June I ordered from Perry second time. It was Magnolia Alba, Banana Shrub, Magnolia Coco. Perry does magic with plants. All plants are exotic and hard to find on the market especially in Canada.
His packaging is excellent too, so you get your plants delivered to your door in great condition. I am very happy about my plants. They are doing great, many started blooming by now.
The only I want to mentioned here that when one buying plants from nurseries, always check the soil. Nurseries have schedule for re-potting, watering and fertilizing. There is a big chance your plant needs some soil improvement and fertilizing as well. And don't forget to check soil Ph for acid loving plants.

My order took a bit of time to settle (some things weren't in stock but substitutes were worked out and a few late additions were added on). My order was shipped one day and, to my pleasant surprise, arrived the next. The items were good-sized, apparently healthy plants and seeds. I'm very pleased, especially since Flora Exotica has many items hard to find elsewhere (Sugar Cane, True Cinnamon, Bougainvillea, Chinese Toon, Gynura procumbens, and such). I've emailed Perry a question about the Chinese Toon (about its hardiness) but haven't heard back yet. I'm really hoping to get an answer. While answering customer questions after a sale, especially during a busy shipping time, is perhaps going a little above and beyond the call of duty for a mail-order nursery, it's still good form, and I'd really like to know if the Chinese Toon is safe to plant out in zone 6 or if it'll need a couple more years of growth before it will be hardy enough to withstand our winter. The survival of the plant might depend on whether I get an answer or not.

Well I have nothing but praise for Perry at Flora Exotica. After getting a few suggestion from Perry for my sunroom I placed an order on Monday March 19, Perry shipped the three plants on Wednesday March 21 and I received the healthy plants first thing Friday morning March 23. Now that is fast! I have to admit we both are in Canada so shipping to other places outside Canada may not be as quick. Plants were as ordered (actually a little bigger) and both the Myers lemon and baby orange trees had fruit on them. The Osmanthus fragrans was ordered as a 2-3 foot plant. The one that arrived was 4 feet. Thanks again Perry.

On Sept. 15 I ordered a vanilla plant, vanilla cuttings and a cinnamon plant. I told Perry this was for shipment to Eugene, Oregon. On Sept. 27, I heard back from Perry, who told me to send him 95$ via Paypal. I did so. He then mailed the plants to the address in Boston,MA listed on Paypal. I did not know that Paypal gives out shipping addresses when not asked to do so, and Perry never confirmed this address with me. I had moved to Eugene from Boston at the beginning of September. Perry said the plants were delivered to Boston and there was nothing he could do. on Oct. 9, I told him I was very unhappy about this and I received no reply. It is now Oct. 17. 95$ down the tubes! Don't order from Flora Exotica- horrible customer service.

When you make an order to Flora Exotica, you have to specify where you are sending it to *so they can calculate shipping.* I specified Eugene, Oregon, and I was given a shipping price. Which I was charged.

Now, you either "didn't notice" that my oregon was going to Oregon, and thus shipped it to my old address in Boston listed in Paypal without telling me (I had just moved to Oregon - and furthermore, what if this was a gift????), or you *lied* about calculating the shipping, since you charged me *the same shipping to ship to Boston from Montreal as to ship across the country to Oregon.*

Furthermore, you never replied directly to me when I emailed you about this. You only responded to this site. You only care that more people will order from you, and not what happens to them once they do. You have terrible customer's service.

The first thing to do now is to update your PayPal shipping address so that your future online purchases will be shipped to you instead of your old address in Boston. This is because eBay and PayPal allows automatic printing of shipping labels, so most sellers do take advantage of this feature.

As mentioned on our email to you on October 08, since you did not send a full shipping address to replace the one in PayPal, the shipping label is automatically printed using your shipping address in PayPal. Now that the merchandise has been delivered, and the Post Office has rendered their services, we can not make any claim to provide you with a refund. We have also suggested that you contact the people at the old address, who may be kind enough to re-direct the shipment to you. Please feel free to contact us if there is any thing else we can help with.

Dear Vera,

Each of your question sent to us via Email has been politely answered. Your email about this problem, sent Oct 08, was answered the same day, directly to your email address. Even your latest 'threatening' email was politely answered with an offer for a partial refund. We do take good care of our customers, but we cannot help customers who provide a wrong shipping address (either directly or via PayPal)."

I live in Wyoming, USA. Recently, I bought plants from Flora Exotica. They arrived so quickly that I can't believe they came from Canada so quickly, only 4 days after I ordered. The plants arrived just on time before the snow came. The three Lolot, Feuille BBQ plants arrived in excellent condition. Mr. Perry took time to pack each plant very thoughtfully. Each plant was supported with a bamboo stake so the plants would not be crushed during travel. There is no damage to any single leaf when they arrived. I will use the Lolot leaves to wrap sliced beef with seasoning, soy sauce, garlic, pepper and honey, then fry them with a little oil. They will have a delicious flavor that everyone will love.

All of the other baby plants also arrived in excellent condition, and the leaves are very green. I am a plant lover, and I have bought plants from many different places. Flora Exotica has good prices, good selection and packs each plant carefully. The plants I purchased from Flora Exotica are great additions to my indoor herb garden.

Twice I have bought plants and seeds from Flora Exotica and each time they arrived in better shape than I expected. All the plants were alive and some have started to bloom since. The tender Exotic plants, as I expected, take some time to adapt to my climate, and I have had to learn what each of them require.
The true Cinnamon plant that I purchased last year is growing and survived the trip from Montreal to my place through very adverse (fall) conditions. All my plants were well packaged and I was able to see the plants progress as they moved towards their final destination in rural Western Canada .

I live on the other side of Canada. Ordered two Sweet Olives, a Magnolia Coco and a Parrot Plant. All four plants arrived in excellent shape. Floraexoctica kept me informed of the progress of the order and Canada Post (who provided tracking information) surprised me by having it arrive early.

The plants were packed well in the box. There was one loose leaf in the box when it arrived which had fallen off the Parrot plant. The Parrot plant then lost another leaf shortly after arrival, but now two weeks later new leaves are sprouting and it is starting to bloom, so obviously it is doing quite well.

One of the Sweet Olives is also blooming.

All four plants are healthy and showing new growth. Not sure if they suffered any trauma from the trip, but it obviously was very short lived if they did.

I am not a person who has much "luck" with plants. I heard about a specific plant that is one that is said to have certain healing properties for a chronic condition that I have. I really wanted this plant. Which meant, I had to get it and grow it. I ordered it from Perry. He responded to all my emails. He sent me directions on how to care for the plant. The plants progress was easy to track as it traveled. I did phone Perry a couple times. He helped with all my questions. Most of all, the plants arrived in great shape! Even, I, who when plants in the stores see me coming, they play dead, could see that these plants were healthy and vibrant. They must not have known that they were coming to my house. I sent a photo of the plants to another person who distributes the same plant. He is helping me in other areas. He said he was impressed with how healthy the plants appeared to be in the photos. Now, he should know! So, this is day two. Day one, I cut some of the tops as I was directed and they are in water waiting to grow some roots. Then I will pot them. Perry also sent me what to do with the plants now that I have them. Very good support from Perry on this plant mission in which I find myself. Peace

I e-mailed him on the 3rd of May asking when I could expect my shipment . I did not receive a reply. I e-mailed again on May 5th and still no reply.

I ended up phoning Perry on May 8th. He said he could ship two of the three plants out the next day. The Clivia plant would have to wait because they were treating it for a bug infestations. (I was okay with this). The Amazon Lily and the Cymbidium Orchid arrived on the 15 of May. The box was smaller than I expected. The plants were alive, but the Amazon Lily's leaves were mangled and broken. The plant looks like it went thru a wind storm. The Cymbidium Orchid arrived with leaf spot and it has scale bugs. It was smaller than expected and most of the big bulbs in the plant are black and dead. Only two main stems in the plant remain and both are badly infected with leaf spot. Can't wait to see what the Clivia plant looks like when it arrives.

Admintingly, on occasion, Perry was difficult to get a hold of, however, when communicating with him he is polite and helpful and was indeed a wealth of information in person as well. As far as I take it, this operation is a small business , and as a small business owner myself, I understand that the quantity of emails can, at some times, become overwhelming.

Given some knowledge about climatic requirements for native North American cypripedium species, they can be very rewarding to grow in the garden or in containers. They are frequently purchased as dormant "eyes" with a root mass, looking very tender and vulnerable at first. While they do need appropriate treatment, they grow quite quickly after planting. I've grown a fair number of cypripedium species in my Oregon garden. While I've purchased from a number of suppliers, the plants I received from Flora Exotica have been the healthiest I've ever gotten. Shipping was amazingly fast, they were well-packed, so I'm confident they will grow quickly into robust plants.

We do offer refunds for plants that are dead on arrival. For plants that die while being taken care of by customers, we can not be held responsible.

PayPal and credit card companies protect buyers who refuse merchandise within a reasonable period of time. If the customer accept the merchandise (like seeds and plants), then request a refund, they will not be able to help.

We regret that your first try on the Chocolate plant did not work out. We hope that you understand the high cost of getting these plants from the other side of the globe to make them available to customers who like to experience with new species.

subjectRe: dead order


I understand your frustration when plants die after all the efforts and time spent on caring for it. This happens to us sometimes, and we do not go back to our suppliers to ask for refunds. We appreciate their work to make these rare plants available to us.

It is possible to kill plants without doing any thing wrong. Plants are living things and they respond to a set of conditions required for them to grow. Many of us do not have the conditions required for certain plants.

May I suggest, in the future, that you return plants that are almost dead so that sellers will be able to nurse them back to health and sell them to other customers. That way, the sellers will be able to have money to refund you."

Dealing with Perry Ngyuen is a charm, and for those of you folks who can't quite "zip down to Montreal on a moment's notice" let me tell you that it's my personal pleasure to have zipped over to Perry's to see all his foliage, with my own eyes!

So forget the FedEx guy and maybe try to make your way up (or down) here.

I bought a mimosa from him on a whim, and then a cycad, just because it looked good, and now, after two months or so, the mimosa is really trying to be a tree! And when my wife didn't like the cycad, we brought it back in our very own car and Perry handed us an Aeonium in exchange!

I swear, Perry could charge tickets to go see his place (plus, I'm a big plane fan and he's right in the major flightpath of Dorval airport!) so trust me on this one. The plant you get from Flora Exotica is going to be a plant you're going to love for a long time to come.

Long story short, it was wednesday before mothers day, i called, they said they had, i was skeptical that the picture would be better than the actual, but as true as their word they sent her a very green plant, with buds now coming out, plus a few growing lemons. she even was a day late picking it up and it was still very healthy. I thank them for their immediate response, consistent communication and a perfect choice plant.
