General

Yes! We just have a few shopping guidelines in place if you shop in-store with us. Please click here to check them out before stopping by! 

We offer no contact pick up in the cart section at checkout for up to a week after purchase. You will be able to schedule a date and time within our business hours that works best for you! We have pickups available at our front counter inside. Just ask for your name or please give our shop a call at: (503)-719-4763 if you need contact-less pickup. If your order is not picked up within a week of the original purchase your order will be canceled and refunded.

Please email us at hello@ariumbotanicals.com or give us a call at (503)-719-4763 during our business hours and we can check for you! We can even set up with an invoice and schedule a pickup! We are also able to hold plants in the shop for up to 24 hours. Unfortunately though, we are not able to pre-sell or hold any of our more limited plants to keep things fair for everyone.

Unfortunately we do not have a way to notify for specific plants, however we update our online store regularly. If you are signed up for our mailing list you will always get first notice when new plants will go live on the site!

In-Store Shopping:

We can accept returns on any unused ceramics or hard goods for up to 2 weeks after the original purchase.

We only accept returns for plants 24 hours after purchase. We are unable to accept anything outside of this window due to the unknown environment plants can be exposed to after leaving our shop. 

Have an issue with a plant you purchased? We always want to set everyone up for growing success! Please email us directly at hello@ariumbotanicals.com and we can help set you up on the right track.

Shipping Orders:

All of our sales for online shipments are final. We always try to ensure the best quality and customer experience! If you need to cancel an order before it ships, please email us at hello@ariumbotanicals.com! If live plants arrive damaged please shoot us an email and a photo of how it arrived as soon as possible. From here we can work with you to see if we need to file a claim with the shipping company or if the damage was on our end.

We are not responsible for incorrect address entry.

Unfortunately, there is not much we can do on our end about Postal Service delays until a package arrives or is deemed lost.

Shipping

We take the time to carefully wrap each and every plant! We cover the soil with moss and tape it over to prevent any soil from spilling or drying out. We then wrap the entire plant in packaging paper, then tape it in the box to prevent moving or shifting during shipment. All of our packing material is recyclable or biodegradable! We use cellophane packing tape, recycled craft paper, as well as biodegradable box tape.

During the colder months (roughly October through March) we include 72 hour heat packs in plant shipments. In the season transition periods we will check your area to make sure if you order will need one.

***HEAT PACKS CAN ALSO BE INCLUDED UPON REQUEST!***

We breakdown our shipping by quantity and location (local Oregon rates are significantly lower when entering shipping info at checkout!).
