👎🏼 I DO NOT buy, nor recommend plant SEEDS on Amazon, only live plants & cuttings from sellers well rated. I’ve had too many bogus experiences.

👍🏼 I absolutely DO recommend Amazon on live plants that you can’t get locally. Several of our multi-year tropicals have come from good suppliers on Amazon (like (Logee’s, American Plant Exchange, Cold Hardy Farms, Costa Farms, Old Oaks Nursery, Hirts, etc.) and arrived alive and well.
