FAQs

Shipping

Merchandise is generally shipped within one day of your order via UPS or USPS. Cactus cuttings are shipped within about a week using USPS Priority Mail. All shipments are sent with tracking and you will be emailed or texted your tracking number when your order ships.

Maybe you placed an order and want to add just one more thing. You can always use the code BillMeforShipping to temporarily zero out the shipping charges and when I’m ready to ship I’ll invoice you for any additional shipping charges needed.
