My Favorite Online Plant Sellers (2023 Version)

Philodendron Spiritus Sancti from NoveltyG on eBay



Welcome, plant friends!

It's been a while since I did an updated (& more comprehensive) list of all the really great plant sellers out there on the Internet. 

While shopping for plants in-person is always the most ideal scenario, the reality is that the availability of certain plants (& plant shops in general) is lacking in my area. Which means I have become somewhat of an expert on having plants shipped from around the country and even imported from outside the United States.

Before I get into the list, it's worth noting that if you are new to buying plants online, it's important to read the policies and tips from the plant shop you're purchasing from. They'll often set expectations around what to expect for your shipment provide you with information on caring for your plant after it arrives as well as requirements for any exchanges or returns for heavily damaged or dead-on-arrival plants. 

I've seen sellers require an unboxing video in order to process any replacements. You may also be required to reach out within a certain time frame to report any issues with your shipment (sometimes within 24 hours). I've even seen sellers stipulate that replacements won't be issued if you repotted your plant soon after receiving it (say, within a week of arrival).

Know these types of things before you order so that there are no nasty surprises. 

That's all from me!

The list below is a working list, so I may add or delete entries as needed. I have personally purchased from every shop and seller on this list except those marked with an asterisk (*). Feel free to leave any shops you think I should check out in the comments below! I love finding new plant sources.

Happy growing 🪴
