Exotica Plants is scheduled to update EARLY OCTOBER 2018!
Exotica Plants Partnership
We LOVE importing new and rare Nepenthes hybrids/species from the BEST Nepenthes Nursery in the world, Exotica Plants (EP) in Australia! For those of you who aren’t familiar, EP is the world leader in Nepenthes hybridization. They create the most desired hybrids in cultivation today and their quality is unbeatable! Our relationship is 20 years strong and we have years worth of knowledge of their stock. We only do these imports twice a year and highly encourage you place an order if you love tropical pitcher plants! It’s an amazing opportunity to get something unique for your Nepenthes collection offered exclusively through RedLeaf Exotics!
The scheduled catalog updates will always be announced via social media @RedleafExotics and our Newsletter.
What is the process?
There are two phases to the Ep import process. There will be no direct ordering of Exotica’s website. For the first phase, Exotica will send us an availability list and we post it up on RedleafExotics.com under the Exotica Plants pre-order tab on our menu bar. Once the list is live, our customers can pre-order and pay for their plants immediately. Some plants are in limited quantities, so be quick!
(ALL DATES WILL BE ANNOUNCED VIA NEWSLETTER AND SOCIAL MEDIA)
Phase 2 is a little sloppy so we changed our process. For plants that can’t be divided amongst the vendors, Exotica post them on their site to be ordered. In the past, customers were to go on Exotica’s site and send us a requests we forwarded to EP. This killed a lot of time and we lost a lot of plants. On top of this, we had to create hundreds of invoices manually and organize even more emails. Some requests were for the same plants over and over and It’s clear how unorganized this can become for us. Some customers weren’t too happy after waiting to hear back from EP and then getting an email with all the plants we missed out on. SOOOOOO…
We have placed a new process in position. There will be no requesting plants from Exotica’s website. We will be ordering as much as we can and the plants will be posted up on REDLEAFEXOTICS.COM a day or two later. This will allow us to post at a more reasonable time, instead of 7am when most of you are still a sleep:) DATE AND TIME WILL BE SENT OUT OUR NEWSLETTER AND POSTED ON SOCIAL MEDIA. This makes everything so much smoother for all of us. The plants will be under the pre-order tab on our site. You will order as you would normally do on our site. This guarantees you get what you order and there will be no disappointments.
We are collectors ourselves and we know your tastes as well! DON’T WORRY ABOUT MISSING OUT! We have a great relationship with Exotica and they send us top quality Nepenthes plants! Please understand on top of all the nursery work we have here and the amount of work that goes into the import on our end, this will ensure we are more efficient and can better take care fo all the orders.
When can I expect my order?
The order usually gets to us in early November and our customers will be updated along the way. We kindly ask for your patience as Geoff and Andrea carefully pack and ship hundreds of orders by themselves.
Once we receive the import, we will immediately pack and ship orders.
We keep our customers updated with the latest information available to us.
Thanks Nepenthes Lovers,
