PLACING AN ORDER | TERMS & CONDITIONS
It’s important to me that you have other options to purchase the artificial aquarium plants, reptile habitat plants and home decor items I design and create.
Custom orders are always welcome and there isn’t any additional charge for any consolation time / service.
See something you like but the size isn’t what you need, not a problem. In most cases I can easily design styles that are better suited to fit your personal tank situation. Note some plants stems are pre-cut in length by the manufacture which sometimes limits the option for the height desired.
To view many of the plant styles I’ve designed, visit the design portfolios (links at top of page under ‘design portfolios’)
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO COMPLETE A CUSTOM ORDER?
Design Time needed before shipping is 1 day for every plant ordered / purchased. Example: If you purchased 3 plants it would take three days (2 for the plant and 1 for the non-toxic adhesive to cure) to make them. Once competed, they would ship on the day that followed.
To place a custom order, email your plant choices & needs as follows:
The following information would be helpful; include in your email :
- whether a freshwater aquarium, a reptile terrarium environment or a snake habitat.
- the style (name) and product # or SKU.
- quantity of each design and the preferred height(s).
- a contact name & shipping address.
- include any other “special requests” and or questions.
If there are styles you’ve selected that are currently not in stock, you will be notified via email, shortly after your original request. Note some plant styles have restrictions by manufacture; i.e. stem length, bend-ability; will notify you if that’s the case. Custom orders do take a few extra days to create and design. Thee is no additional service fee for placing a Custom Order. All other costs and shipping rates apply.
The completed custom order pieces will resemble the examples (s) you chose but will differ slightly in their design; IE a stem turning upward or down ward, number of total stems. Each plant design is a one of a kind.

Custom Order Terms:
I dislike having to be so curt, right off the cuff… Over the years I have had several different custom orders that that turned unpleasant. Once the entire order had been planed, agreed upon / finalized (over the course of 15 days) and it was time for payment, The customer then said they “changed their mind”. To go through the entire process, at no additional cost to the customer, only to find that all the hours and days spent were lost.
Therefore, by placing a custom order, you are in agreement that you will pay for the total invoiced price.
I am more than happy to invest my time and creativity, spending what ever time is needed to plan, discuss and finalize a Custom Order. I do not charge a consolation / service fee for any of my time spent planning / preparing a custom order.
