Frequently Asked Questions

Plant packaging: 
All Plants are shipped with their grow pots unless specified on the item that it will be shipped with spagnum moss. The soil is secured by damp paper towels and taped to pot to prevent soil from spilling over (this is not a guarantee that some soil may loosen during transit). Plants are secured with polyfill around leaves to ensure cushion, and then finally wrapped with packaging paper or thermal wrapping 

Cuttings Unrooted / Rooted packaging:

Unrooted Cuttings are packaged with polyfill and secured in a thermal slip. (This is not a heat pack or cold pack. A “Thermal slip” is used for additional prevention during extreme temperatures and/or transit delays.)

Rooted Cuttings are wrapped with damp spagnum moss and plastic wrap. Additionally, leaves are secured and cushioned with polyfill. If possible, plants will be wrapped with either a “Thermal Slip” or packaging paper

At Mima Shoppe, we do a combination of growing our plants and importing plants. Due to the rarity of select plant species we carry, many plants have been imported.

Once we import a plant, it stays with us for an extended period of time to ensure it acclimates and has begun growing new roots and ready for a new home.

We also do our best to propagate these rare species rather than constantly import.

Our promise to you is to ship your plants/cuttings to the best of our ability. We are also buyers and have taken what we like/dislike and have implemented what works for us. We try to limit packaging materials from an environmental standpoint but by not jeopardizing the safety of the plant during transit.

All orders will begin shipping on Monday/Tuesday to prevent delays in carriers' warehouses during the weekend.

Due to COVID-19 there have been significant delays in shipping. Please select proper carrier and expedited shipping to get your plants quicker to prevent delays.

Weather and Carrier delays are out of Mima Shoppe control.

No, we currently do not offer heat packs or cold packs. We can wrap plants/cuttings in thermal wrapping or “thermal slips” during extreme weather to help ensure safe arrival (this is not a guarantee of weather protection).

Currently, we ship to the Continental United States, Hawaii, and Alaska via USPS/UPS.
