Well well, it turns out they only ship to US and Canada. So my order is busted.

Bizarre - I mean they already take paypal and credit cards; and it's the same trip to the post office after all.

Some of the species names on their website are ancient - I mean "Areca lutescens" and "Neanthe bella"? Really.

I think I know what A. lutescens is meant to be but what on earth is Neanthe bella ?

Neanthe bella = Chamaedorea elegans

I always hesitate to buy from vendors who can't keep their species lists reasonably up to date. Are they too lazy or just plain stupid?

Not much of a selection either. Rather common palms. Don't believe their focus is on palms. :indifferent:

I ordered some palm and tree seeds from them and they arrived perfectly packed and even included a pack of label sticks. They guarantee their seeds, if they don't germinate let them know. Mine haven't quite had long enough to germinate. So we shall see.

I have no experience with them, but I just went on the website and there are several palms for sale that are mislabelled--Kinda sketchy when you can't tell a metallica from an ernesti augusti...

I ordered seeds from them and arrived within 4days not like 3-4weeks for RPS.

 

The company is located in Vanleave, Mississipi.

 

Great company for small beginners and small orders and doesn't require

you to order 30euros or roughly $25 worth of seeds.

 

Most packets are contain 5 seeds or less and wont cost more than $5 per packet.

 

Seeds look fresh and are still incubating.
