Cold Weather Shipping & Heat Packs
We are happy to provide tropical houseplants to plant lovers across the country year-round, and we always guarantee a happy and healthy delivery. We ship plants from South Carolina, where we experience a relatively mild climate throughout the year. However, we regularly ship to areas with temperature extremes. The majority of our packages are shipped via USPS, and we have found that they do an excellent job of keeping their parcels safe from extreme temperatures. We recommend that someone is available on the day of delivery to retrieve the package as this is when it is most likely to be exposed.
We are grateful to see less than 1% of plants damaged by heat or cold. Our secure packaging method provides an insulated cocoon for the plant, which offers a degree of protection against temperature extremes. If you have concerns about low temperatures, we also offer 72 hour heat packs. We recommend adding a heat pack to your order when daytime highs are below 45 degrees during the date range which your order is expected to deliver. You can find these heat packs in our shop, or directly from this listing - https://www.etsy.com/listing/733416370/heat-pack-for-live-plant-shipments-72
If you have purchased a heat pack, and upon our review of your areas predicted temperatures we determine that it is not needed, or that it may be detrimental to the plant, we will not include the heat pack, and will issue you a refund for the heat pack.
If you have any questions regarding heat packs, or concerns regarding temperatures, please do not hesitate to contact us.
