How to deal with cold/ heat damaged plants after shipment.

Hello Plant Enthusiasts!

We totally understand how heartbreaking it is to receive plants damaged by harsh weather. As plant lovers, we're all in this together, embracing the risks and learning to minimize losses. Here are some tried-and-true tips we've gathered from our experiences. We hope they'll be super helpful when you need them.

Step 1: Gently remove the substrate to inspect the roots, stems, and nodes.

Step 2: Bathe the plants in room temperature water to clean them.

Step 3: Carefully trim away any dead or damaged roots to prevent future issues like root rot.

Step 4: Examine the main stem and nodes. Snip off any parts damaged by cold or heat. Remember, each cutting should have at least one node and an auxiliary bud.

Step 5: Remove any leaves that are damaged.

Step 6-1: If the roots are still in good shape, repot the plant in a quality soil mix. You can find our special blend [here].

Step 6-2: For cuttings with few or no roots, opt for sphagnum moss, water, or a rooting substrate you're comfortable with.

Step 7: Place your plant in a bright, warm spot, ideally with 75-80°F humidity.

Step 8: Regularly check on your plant's progress.

We hope this guide eases your plant rescue mission! If there's anything we missed or if you have any tips to share, we'd love to hear from you. Happy Planting and remember, every plant has a story of resilience!
