Customer Service FAQ
Most of the varieties of plants that we sell do not thrive in water as they are soil-based species. However if you would like to try it (and it can work if you’re careful and conscientious) we advise that you keep a close eye on the plant and in particular watch out of any signs of rot in the root system.
Due to a quirk of our ordering software it’s impossible to update orders once confirmed. If the order has not yet been shipped we can cancel it and re-enter it. Once it has shipped we can no longer cancel it. If you would like to change or cancel an order please contact our support team by emailing email@example.com so that we can help out.
If you find out that you have made a mistake when entering your delivery address, please quickly contact our support team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can help out. We can only adjust this for you if the order has not yet been shipped. Once it has left our greenhouse we cannot adjust it anymore, and you will have to contact the delivery company to resolve the issue.
Along with your order you will find a handy factsheet that explains step by step how to give your BabyPLNTS the best possible start in their new home. For the first growth phase of your BabyPLNTS it is important to use our specially-formulated cutting soil, which is engineered specifically to care for the delicate roots of baby plants. In our shop you can choose from a range of stylish BabyPLNTS pots. If you want to use a slightly larger pot go for it, but be careful how much water you give- larger pots often encourage overwatering. If you’re new to keeping plants we have designed a special set of terracotta pots which contains a suitable pot for each growth phase. You can find it in our online store.
Despite a lot of interest it is unfortunately not yet possible for us to ship outside Europe because the journey is too stressful for our PLNTS and can cause them damage. Our team is working hard to find a way of packaging them safely to provide a solution for this, and as soon as we find a safe shipping method we will announce it on social media. Stay tuned!
Please don’t try to remove the plug from your PLNT- just bury the whole thing like that. It’s 100% biodegradable, and as it breaks down it will provide valuable nutrients to help your PLNT grow strong. If you try to remove the plug you may damage the plant’s delicate roots.
Oh no! The first thing to do is head to our website, where you’ll find a page titled PLNTS Doctor. There you can find a list of some of the more common problems that can affect plants, and ways to treat them. If your question is not answered by this page you can always make a doctor’s appointment via our website or send an email directly to our PLNTS Doctor! Send a photo of the plant to email@example.com so that we can see what is wrong, and please include your order number in the email if you can. Hopefully we can help you further!
That’s terrible news. Though, it sometimes happens, it’s always upsetting to hear. You’ve got a couple of options. 1. Take a look at the PLNTS doctor page and see if you can do anything at home to bring your plant back to life. 2. Alternatively, send an email, describing the nature of your issue and a picture of the broken order to support@PLNTS.com.
On our website you can pay securely using iDeal, PayPal, credit/Visa cards, Bancontact, Sofort Banking, EPS and Giropay.

Your plants will travel in eco-friendly style, fully protected by a specially-designed package made of 100% recycled PET made from drinks bottles and other plastics. To keep shipping as sustainable as possible we encourage you to recycle the blister packaging. This way our packaging gets a second, third or fourth life!

Well you’ve come to the right place. We love plants (and nature), and our goal is to become 100% sustainable. Unfortunately finding the right sustainable packaging is still a real challenge but we are constantly trying to improve. All of our packaging is made from water bottles and other recycled materials. Have a look at the environment page to find out more.
That’s excellent! We love hearing from the PLNTS’ community. Though, as much as we would love to, we aren’t always able to answer queries as quickly as we would like. But we strive to respond within 48 hours.
We hear this a lot. We recommend leaving the plug to avoid damaging your PLNTS’ roots. Don’t worry, all of our plugs are 100% biodegradable meaning they won’t harm the earth!
We try to replenish our supplies of PLNTS and supplies every week, but sometimes it can take a little longer. However for all out-of-stock items you will see an option to leave us your email address. If you do this you will automatically receive a message from us when the item is back in stock!
All orders over 75 euros are shipped free of charge. Orders of less than 75 euros are charged shipping at standard rates. Simply enter your address details during checkout and the shipping costs will be calculated and added to your order.
Our Baby Plants travel with what we call a “growth plug”, which is a biodegradable net to protect roots and keep soil together. They do not arrive with a nursery pot. As soon as you receive your Baby Plant, submerge its growth plug in water for 10 minutes before potting it to make sure it’s had plenty to drink. To give your plant the best start, we recommend a pot with a diameter of 9cm. Our Mini Plants arrive in a small nursery pot which they will be happy in for a little while, at least until they’ve grown a bit. We recommend that you transfer them into a pot of 11 cm when you’re able to. Our larger PLNTS (which come in M, L and XL sizes) are already all grown up and they’re comfortably at home in their plastic pot, so instead of worrying about repotting you can just go straight ahead and place them, pot and all, inside a decorative outer pot. We sell a whole range of unique designs in our online store, or you can go thrifting to find something completely you!
Cutting soil is engineered to have a very fine, compact and regular structure which is designed to support little roots by ensuring an even water and food supply and preventing dehydration. Once a cutting is fully rooted you can transfer your plant to normal potting soil. The normal potting soil can be used for both the BabyPLNTS (when your plant is a bit larger) and for larger PLNTS.
This depends on the selection you make when you order the set, but you will always find a standard set of items; three healthy, cute baby plants, three small (9cm) terracotta pots with saucers, a bag of specially-formulated cutting soil, three water meters to make sure they get the water they need, and a special nutritional additive that you can add to their water to help them grow. It’s a perfect kit for starting your own PLNTS collection or for gifting to somebody else.
We currently ship our packages with PostNL, DHL and DPD. Outside of The Netherlands we rely on the various partners of PostNL. You can see which carrier will deliver your package by checking the tracking code. If there is a problem or delay with the delivery, please contact our support team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can help out. Where possible please include the order number in your email so that we can help you extra quickly!
After making a payment you will always receive a confirmation e-mail from us, so if the email does not arrive it’s likely that either there was an error in your email address, or our mail ended up in your spam folder. If you cannot find the confirmation email please contact our support team by emailing email@example.com with a screenshot of your payment so that we can help out.
Our PLNTS are grown naturally in our greenhouse so depending on the season, the weather, the parent plant and the age of the plant, the actual PLNT you will receive might vary a bit from what you see in the picture on the online store. In this way every PLNT is a unique object, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Despite the enormous impact of the COVID-19 virus, your order will still be shipped and delivered as promised. Our deliveries are occasionally taking slightly longer than normal, because of the additional safety precautions taken by mail carriers. We highly recommend that you give your home address for delivery, as pick-up points may close unexpectedly during this period of uncertainty.
