Native Exotics order review -- New pics 07/09/14

by SEWinans » Wed Jan 15, 2014 3:45 pm

I ordered a couple of plants from http://www.nativeexoticsonline.com and, after much anticipation, they arrived yesterday. :) I give Native Exotics an enthusiastic 10/10 !!!

I cannot say enough good things about the staff at Native Exotics. Their customer service is excellent. They were more than willing to answer any questions that I had. They care about the plants that they sell, and did a wonderful job packaging them for shipping. I must also mention that they replanted both neps in fresh medium for me, and shipped them potted! They certainly did not charge me enough for shipping.

They packaged these plants so carefully! The heat pack is on the left side, and the plants on the right.

It's like you wrote a post for me! I got my plants from them today too & I'll post pics this evening. Add my 11 out of a possible 10 as well. Just sick (i.e. awesome) plants, you'll see.

Can't wait to see your plants! I will absolutely order from them again. If I had more room right now I would buy at least two or three other neps that they have in stock.

wow,what a careful retailer! my neps bought from online seller here would always take months to recover from shipping damage ,as they definitely care less about neps but money.

I received plants from them today, actually. Shipped bare root to me. (Fingers crossed for no shock).

Excellent looking plants. Definitely will order from them again.

What plants did you purchase from them?

I ordered a N. glabrata from them that shipped bare root. It took no time at all for it to settle in. We had discussed shipping the N. hamata potted to reduce shock, and they just kindly send my N. talangensis potted as well. I will definitely order from them again as soon as I have more room for plants. :)

I really can't say enough good things about Ryan's Native Exotics.
Your hamata looks to be doing very well, keep us posted.

I just received an N. dubia and an N. 'St. Hedwig.'

The dubia:

You can sorta see the 'St. Hedwig' peaking over the back of the eustaycha

Thanks for this. I may get something from them eventually, especially if I could get them to import a N. maxima "Lake Poso" for me!
Your plants look awesome by the way.

Awesome! I hope to someday get a dubia as well. It seems like my *must have* list of nepenthes increases daily :-)
