I ordered a Chamaedorea Tepejilote "seedling" from them last August. They shipped promptly, very neatly and securely packed, bare rooted. It arrived quickly, and has been growing happily ever since. The palm was even larger than i expected, and had just opened its first pinnate leaf. It is now working on pushing up its second. Great communication, service, and a Great seller!

I met Mike when I purchased some citrus pots from him, he's a great guy who went above and beyond for me when he didn't have to.
Thanks again Mike. Don

I have ordered from MB Palms many times, most recently two of his chamaedorea tuerckheimii. Great communication, great packing & shipping and BEAUTIFUL plants. They are growing like weeds and have put out two new leaves since I got them. I will definitely be ordering from him again !

I've purchased several from this seller too and have never had any problems. They have always been shipped promptly, packaged well and very healthy. I will definitely continue to do business with this seller!

Great palms. Sometimes throws in a bonus one or two. All the ones I've ordered are doing well.

Positive experience with this grower via Ebay. As of today though they have removed themselves from a vendor on Ebay so have to contact them direct for now unless dispute with Ebay is resolved.

They closed their Ebay store because of dispute they have with Ebay. They have a note to simply email them if you want to buy palms. Sent 3 emails, replied to first, not the last two.

 

here is what it says..

 

I have decided to close my ebay store for the foreseeable future.  This is due to a dispute with ebay over their seller standards.  If you would like to purchase anything from me please email me mr.palms.brett@gmail.com

That's bad news.  I have found buying from them on eBay great, and going direct - unresponsive.  Thanks for the useful update!

Its my understanding that Brett decided to pursue other passions other then palms. MB palms still exists (they were at the Palm Beach Sale) but Mike is the guy you need to contact. Sorry, I don't have his e-mail address.

I'm sure someone from the Palm Beach chapter has his e-mail, perhaps they could be so kind to post it here.
