It is always necessary to communicate the facts ascertained without undue delay to the delivery company or courier and the seller.

    5. We can be responsible for complications with consignments or errors that we can influence ourselves (packaging etc.) and for complications caused by the country of departure or within the European Union (where we are at this range).

The complaint can not be applied in cases where the plant unfortunately died as a result of imperfect care, such as insufficient or unsatisfactory plant requirements, inadequate or poor conditions for cultivation, excess fertilization, improper shaping, damage by natural elements or harmful substances, Any plant defect therefore needs to be assessed individually, on a case-by-case basis. The claim does not apply to defects that have been proven to be improper use or care contrary to generally known and for successful cultivation by the necessary conditions and rules, ie cultivation or other misconduct of the user (buyer). Furthermore, the claim can not be claimed in case of theft, mechanical damage by buyer, third person or animals.

    9. According to our experience If the plant is exposed during transport by low temperature or frost or on the other side extremly high temperature, perishes (turns brown) completely whole in a very short time. This situation may very likely occur during the transportation. We can not be held accountable for this fact. The client must send a photo as soon as possible, the seller will be initiated complaint and the client will be paid an amount equivalent to 50% of the amount acquired in the complaint procedure.
