Tropical Ornamental Plants
 

   Due to the unexpected death of my brother and business partner David, we are temporarily not shipping plants, just seeds and fruits.  Many of the items listed are available for local sales.  Thank you for your understanding.

    The plants on this page are specially propagated in soiless mix to meet nematode quarantine regulations of California, Arizona, Texas and Louisiana, but can be shipped anywhere else too.  They are shipped in the pot, so don't experience any transplant shock.  Please check back, as we are continually adding new items.  Also, please contact us for custom propagation of anything you don't see here.  Prices do not include shipping (shipping information)
