Shipping Guidelines

We usually ship within the continental U.S. via UPS. As an alternative, USPS Priority Mail can be selected. Priority Mail is more expensive but delivery is much faster to locations west of Louisiana. Orders depart most days of each week unless we delay for holidays or other circumstances (i.e. weather). Delivery is usually within one week of the order date, depending on delivery location and selected carrier.

The shipping boxes are up to 54" tall. Most 3 gallon bamboos fit nicely inside our tallest box. Tall culms are sometimes bent to fit into the box rather than cutting them. It is better to cut a culm above a node with foliage rather than having it break below the lowest node with foliage. Therefore, some plants will be trimmed to fit the box if necessary.

We ship one or more bamboo plants per box. No soil is removed so the bamboo should arrive unstressed and well-hydrated. The pot is plastic-wrapped and wired securely to the bottom of the box. Two plants in one box generally increase the shipping rate of that package by about 50% (a $22.00 shipping charge becomes $33.00). Our 3 gallon bamboos usually have one to five culms and are considered starts – not mature bamboos. The roots and rhizomes are always fully developed and ready to produce new shoots. When packaging for shipping, culms are often trimmed to fit their shipping box. Some are bent into the box rather than trimmed. Bent culms can sometimes splinter or break off in transit but customers usually prefer, if possible, that they’re bent rather than arbitrarily trimmed during packaging.

The table below is just a general guideline - actual shipping costs will be calculated in the shopping basket for your order and can be reviewed before payment is made.

Order Info

The tropical bamboo species listed on this website are usually available all year. Orders will be shipped, or delivered locally, within one week as long as ordered items are in stock. Most shipments go out Monday - Thursday of each week.

Although specific bamboos are listed here, most of the species listed on the FCC-ABS website's species table can be obtained. Email me with any queries about unlisted species.

We deliver plants locally (South Florida) via independent delivery drivers at an approximate rate of $2.50 per mile, one-way from our nursery. Please call for an exact rate to your address. This rate is the same for one plant or a truck load - retail or wholesale/commercial. Drivers are paid directly, upon delivery.
