TO AVOID REFUNDS OR RETURNS

We have a variety of sizes for each plant, with different prices. It's up to you and to your discretion that you are ordering the corrent plant/size. Some listings have multiple images to show the different sizes we are offering - with different prices. Please keep note of that and not expect a well established plant like the images when you only paid for a $20 unrooted item. - Please check your order as soon as it arrives. If there is a problem, please email us via ces@hoya-obsession.com as soon as possible, within 48 hours of receipt where possible.
