Frequently Asked Questions

What if a plant arrives non-viable or damaged in shipping?

Unfortunately sometimes shipping is not kind to plants but don't worry, just notify me within 48hr of delivery and I can send replacements to you

Can I pick up my order locally?

Yes you can pick up locally (off of Todd Rd south of Santa Rosa). Send me a message to coordinate the pick up and I will refund any shipping costs

Sizing details

I do my best to provide material that matches listing photos but because plants naturally vary, I do not guarantee size of cuttings/tuber/etc

Can you delay shipping my order until X date?

No, sorry. Because of the complexity it adds to my workflow, I cannot delay orders. Please place your order when you are ready for it to be sent

I'm a beginner; should I order cuttings?

No. Rooting cuttings is generally only for experienced growers with ideal conditions. I do not recommend it for beginners

The Purple Heart cuttings arrived faster than expected and in excellent condition. All of them have shown signs of growth and have begun to produce blooms. The purchase experience exceeded my expectations and I would not hesitate to buy from Four Oak again.

Product came as described. Now trying to be patient and let nature do it’s job!
