I mistakenly thought that I could get a chance to see his growing range and save on shipping at the same time if I went in person. Instead, I was treated rudely, not allowed to see his range (not because he was busy with other things), and not allowed to choose my own plants for purchase. Had I known ahead of time, I might have just opted to mail order. To add insult to injury, the owner picked out a plant that was rotting. I pointed this out to his "partner" who after showing signs of embarrassment, went out to get a replacement. Another strange practice of his was that he would run your credit card even before you arrived to pick up your plants. Unpleasant experience and not the nicest of people, either.

Was not pleased with the condition of the plant I received.
Please see for yourself. Here is what $30 bucks gets you.
I emailed him about the condition of this plant and have yet to hear back from him. I cannot recommend this company

Received plants (Adenium) with the worst infestation of spider mites I've ever seen, and I've been in the nursery business nearly 20 years!
In addition to the mites one of the plants had a moderate to severe infestation of mealybugs.
