I ordered a collection of philodendrons from Kens Nursery, a member of the Botanical Growers network. The plants arrived large, healthy, and expertly packed...not a leaf damaged. I plan to order from them again.

I was really happy with the quality of my order from Real Flora (Botanical Growers). The packaging was first rate and the size and vibrancy of the plants that I ordered exceeded my expectations. I ordered a European Fan Palm (Chamaerops humilis) and a Big Bend Yucca (Yucca rostrata) in the Spring of 2016. I planted both in my yard in San Antonio, Texas in December of 2015, and both are still doing great.

Sorry, I meant Spring of 2015 above.

Love all of the plants I've ordered from these guys! As a college student living in New York City, I needed something that could withstand the harsh winter/varying humidity, and my forgetfulness when it comes to watering. Not only was it easy to find the kinds of plants I was looking for but Pam (one of their growers) even reached out to me via email offering suggestions for types of plants I should get and the kind of care I should be giving. They definitely care about their customers. I'll always order my plants from botanical growers network.

I have bought many plants from this company. Every one has been very healthy amd larger than I expected. And I love that they don't gouge me on the shipping. I find it a fair and honest company and will continue to buy from them in the future. In fact, when I need something, I check there first.

I agree that the ordering process was a bit chaotic but the plants I received - two types of Alocasias, including a 4 pack of A. odoro silver - were incredibly fine, obviously much larger than the 6-in pots they were fit into for shipping. The plants were much better than the Alocasia I received from another company which provides a lengthy paper catalog.

I ordered a bare root chardonnay grape vine from another company back in January, it did not survive the cold northern Nevada temperatures and died. The company was sold out and did not offer me a replacement for next year, nor would they help me locate another plant. I searched the internet for months for a replacement and finally came upon the Real Flora website. They had two Chardonnay grape vines in stock and the plants were not bare root. I ordered one right away. Although I found it strange I did not get a confirmation e-mail from them, they did send an e-mail letting me know the plant was shipped, I also got an e-mail from UPS. My plant should be here by June 5, 2014 I cannot wait to have a live Chardonnay grape vine, it has been a long time coming. What concerns me a little is that while searching for a Chardonnay plant, I typed in 'Chardonnel' and Real Flora came up and had a Chardonnay in stock, so I wonder if the plant is really Chardonnay or Chardonnel because there is a difference, but for $4.88 I guess I can't complain and there's no way to tell either.

The vine arrived today, with biodegradable peanuts in the packaging so my plant was well cushioned. No leaves were on it at all which I was disappointed about, but in all fairness it did travel a very long way and the plant was healthy. I would buy from Real Flora again.

My grape vine is doing very well with lots of new growth. The vine is vigorous and I'm happy with it. Hope this helps someone when they are trying to decide whether to buy from them or not.

My order arrived today, and I can't believe the size of the plants,they are incredible! I was prepared for the average size plants I have been getting from assorted places, never did I expect this. I didn't even have the proper size pots. The San Pedro cactus was 2 feet tall and about 6 inches around. The BOGO offer of Cereus White Night Blooming were 12" tall and at least 4" around. All plants were beautifully wrapped in paper and in the growers cones. I did order in late March, but when I ordered I had to accept the shipment date of mid-April before placing the order. A+++ from me would definitely recommend and I will be shopping with them again.

I just received my second order from RealFlora aka Botanical Growers. I have to say the size and quality of the plants I have received is incredible! You do have to wait a couple weeks for them to arrive, but you are notified at time of purchase. They send an email letting you know it has shipped and when it has arrived. They have answered every email I have sent. No problems whatsoever. I would recommend to give them a try.

I have always had great luck with Botanical Growers and all their sites. I believe that the "Online 24/7" means that the store is available all the time, not that they have operators on the phones.(which they do not... they are very efficient on e-mail though) Here is how I contact them: [email protected] - I think if you send them your order number they will let you know how long until it ships. I got tracking information as soon as my order was boxed and ready for pick up. Don't fret they are real. :)

Second order through botanicalgrowers.com and have been very pleased both times. This time I ordered the commercial growers pack of 25 Giant Red Dragon Fruit for just under $100. All plants were 6-10" tall, well-rooted, and are growing fast. Also, I ordered a Musa Ice Cream plant, which despite having some trouble in its first few weeks (one leaf sprout had broken off inside and was rotting and jamming up the growth process) it was healthy enough to survive the "exploratory" pruning and is already growing again.

Botanicalgrowers.com and patioplants.com seem to be the same company (same PO Box, packaging, and a lot of redundancy in plants offered), but both are worth a look, in case you're not finding something you're looking for at one of the sites.
