Unboxing Your PlantVine Plants

Please be sure to bring your plant(s) inside and unpack them as soon as possible – shipping and extreme temperatures could place undesirable stress on the plants.  Plants left sitting at your doorstep for an extended amount of time in cold or hot weather could potentially damage them.

What to do IMMEDIATELY after your plants arrive:

Please remove your new plant(s) from their shipping boxes as soon as possible. To remove your plant(s) from their box, make sure that the arrows are facing up and simply tilt the box slightly to access the bottom of the box. Simply cut open the bottom and lift. Although our plants are packed with the utmost care, the sooner they can enjoy the light and fresh air, the happier they will be. As you remove the plant from the box, you may notice one (or several) of these occurrences:

  • Some dirt in the pot may have been displaced.
  • Your plant may have some broken branches.
  • Your plant may look a bit wilted.
  • Your plant has dropped several leaves.

Please be assured, all of this is completely normal.

What to do IMMEDIATELY after your plants arrive:

Please remove your new plant(s) from their shipping boxes as soon as possible. To remove your plant(s) from their box, make sure that the arrows are facing up and simply tilt the box slightly to access the bottom of the box. Simply cut open the bottom and lift. Although our plants are packed with the utmost care, the sooner they can enjoy the light and fresh air, the happier they will be.

  • Some dirt in the pot may have been displaced.
  • Your plant may have some broken branches.
  • Your plant may look a bit wilted.
  • Your plant has dropped several leaves.

Please be assured, all of this is completely normal.

Here are your next simple steps to take:
  • Remove the paper sleeve from around your plant (if applicable).
  • Remove the plastic bag that wraps the pot, put any loose dirt in the bag back into the pot.
  • If the plant is tied to a bamboo stake, leave it at least a couple weeks for support. If there is a bamboo stake which isn’t tied to the plant, discard the bamboo stake.
  • Prune off any broken branches, if any. (This will actually promote new growth.)
  • Check the moisture about an inch below the soil surface. If it feels moist, do not water the soil – spray the leaves instead.  If it feels dry, thoroughly soak the soil. Those wilted leaves will perk up in no time!
  • Move the plant into a bright spot, but avoid direct mid-day sunlight for a couple days until the plant recovers from the shipping stress.
  • Do not fertilize plants for at least three weeks.
