How does it work? Once you confirm your subscription order you will receive a shipment containing one imported Korean rare, one of our pots and a little bag of our inorganic medium (enough to fill the pot). We ship subscriptions on the first Monday of every month.
What does CCF send in terms of plants? We send one plant each month. The plants we select for our subscriptions are held to our high quality standards. Everything we send (unless it's a brand new hybrid) is shown via our Special Requests page. The plants we send are the same type of plants we showcase in our uploads and through our Request platform. Retail prices on the plants we enclose in our subscriptions range from $20-$35.
When will I get my first delivery? We ship the first Monday of each month (unless it's a federal holiday, if that's the case we will ship the next business day). You must be signed up by the 15th of the month prior to your first delivery. For example: If you sign up before September 15th then your first delivery would ship out October 5th. If you sign up on September 16th then your first delivery would ship out on November 2nd. The reason for this is we procure our plants from overseas and we need to make sure we have enough time to get you on the subscription schedule.
Can I add heat packs to my subscription or postpone my delivery? Yes. Right now you can let us know by email by dropping us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will honor those requests. By October we should have a platform in place where you can see how many subscription deliveries you have remaining, upgrade shipping (if you'd prefer UPS), add heat packs to next month's delivery and postpone shipments if you're traveling.
And final thoughts from CCF... please remember that we only ship subscriptions from October to May. This means that our cut off for a six month subscription is November 15th, 2020. After that we will still keep our three month subscriptions available until February 15th, 2021.
