PLANTS
ALL PLANT SALES ARE FINAL; however, we want to ensure that you receive a healthy and happy plant whether you picked it up in-store or had it shipped to you online! 

IN-STORE POLICY
If your plant has completely died within the 48 hours after purchase, please email us directly with a photo of the plant and your order number / receipt number. Once received, we will review and offer a full refund for the plant cost within 1-2 business days. 

WORKSHOPS & CLASSES
In order to receive a full refund for any purchased workshop or class, the customer needs to provide a minimum of 72 hours notice prior to the workshop/class. This allows Explorganics an attempt to fill the vacancy. Anything less that 72 hours notice, full refund cannot be guaranteed. Same day cancellation or no shows to the workshop/class is automatically non-refundable.

SHIPPING POLICY
There comes a bit of stress involved with shipping a plant from both parties - when shipping, we do our best to package the plants the safest way possible to ensure that they arrive at your doorstep in the same condition that they left ours. We take the health of our plants VERY seriously, and will do whatever we can to make sure your plant is healthy and happy during the commute to its new home - that being said, we cannot control how the carrier handles the package while en route. 

If your package arrives with damage to the box which has caused damage to your plant, you will need to file a claim with the United Parcel Service. Please click here to file a claim. We know receiving a package that is damaged is very upsetting and we wish we could personally deliver each one to your doorstep safe & sound. Please note: Explorganics Plant Shop is not responsible for any damage caused during shipping. 

If for any unforeseen reason the packaging is in great shape, but your plant itself arrives DOA (dead on arrival), please contact us IMMEDIATELY so we can make things right. Please make sure that you attach photos of your plant and the packaging along with your order number in your email.

POTS, SOIL & ACCESSORIES
ALL POTS + SOIL SALES ARE FINAL; however, if your hand-painted terra cotta pot arrives broken, please contact us immediately with a photo of the damaged pot, box along with order number/receipt number for a refund in store credit for the broken item. 

 

BUGS, APHIDS + MOLD
Plants and bugs, unfortunately, go hand in hand and sometimes they are inevitable, but if a plant is given the proper care, it should stay bug/mold/aphid free! For peace of mind, we want each customer to know that we personally inspect the soil mix, pot and plant for bugs/insects/mold before packaging your plant to ensure your soil and plant is healthy and happy! Explorganics Plant Shop is not responsible for any mold/aphid/bug infestation that occurs to your plant/soil once delivered. If for any unforeseen reason your plant/soil develops aphids/insects/bugs, please contact us immediately and we will do our best to help advise you on what to do to try and save your plant!
