Please note that there are too many live aquarium plants displayed on our website to be able to stock all of them all of the time. For this reason, we stock only the plants that are in highest demand. If there is a plant that you want that is out of stock, please back-order it. We can get all of the plants quickly, but it is your responsibility to back-order the plant so that we will stock it.

Plants that can be back-ordered are labeled as “Available On Backorder”

Payment Processing

Your Credit Card or PayPal account will be charged at the time of your order. We will notify you when your item is available and is shipped. At the moment we only allow live plant back-orders for Tropica Plants. See release date information below.


We place our plant purchase orders from Tropica every Tuesday.
We receive our plant purchase orders on the following Tuesday/Wednesday.

Usually a back-ordered plant can be picked up or shipped within a maximum of two weeks of your order date.

We will process the back-orders in the order in which they were received.

Sometimes Tropica is temporarily out of stock for certain plants. If Tropica is temporarily out of stock for any plant that was back-ordered, we will contact you to see how you would like to proceed. We may either exchange the plant for one that is in stock, refund the missing plant in the order, or wait to make another order attempt with Tropica.


We are currently moving our store. Until further notice, the store will be closed. We will however continue processing online orders. Please allow us extra time for shipping. Sorry for the inconvenience.
