Shipping Options

We ship all plants via the United States Post Office Priority Mail service.  After nearly 30 years of shipping plants we have found that the USPS is the best service for shipping our plants.  They move the plants across the country quite quickly and most packages take between 3-5 days to be delivered once shipped.

We ship growing supplies Internationally via USPS First Class International Mail.  We cannot ship live plants outside of the United States.  If you place an order for live plants to be shipped to an International location, your order will be cancelled and you will be refunded.  California Carnivores will not be responsible for additional cost due to importing, such as customs charges.


Shipping Guarantee

All plants are guaranteed to arrive in good condition.  If you receive a shipment in poor condition or that has been damaged please contact us immediately at  Please be sure to take a photo of the damaged plant upon arrival.

The plants we photograph for our website are representative of the plants we ship.   Plants are photographed during their growing season.  While dormant, they may appear smaller, or maybe even dead, but will quickly grow to look like the one photographed when they resume growth, if properly cared for.  We ship dormant plants with a "Dormant" label.



Shipping Schedule

Once an order is placed and payment is received, you will receive an email confirming your order number.  We ship Monday, Wednesday and Friday year-round.  Exceptions include all major holidays and severe weather which causes delays for USPS. 

Spring and summer, as well as the winter holidays, are our busiest times of year. Packages generally ship out within 7 days of purchase, but can take up to 18 days to ship depending on our current order volume. We are a small business, and we appreciate your patience as our team works hard to send your plants out with speed and care!

We are no longer able to automatically combine orders.
