FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about any of the myriad of flowers we have on our site, the ordering process or your experience while browsing our website. Hawaiian flowers are our passion, so we just love to share our knowledge with our clients. Below are answers to Frequently Asked Questions that may provide information you are seeking. You can also visit our Flower Care section for ideas on how to care for your flowers.
What are the longest lasting tropical flowers?
Anthuriums usually last from 7 to 14 days depending on care and variety, while Dendrobium Orchids may last from 5 to 8 days. Tropicals vary widely, but should last up to 7 days for the most delicate, 8-14 days for the hardier types. Proteas last even longer! All of this depends not only on the flower care in the home, but also the climatic conditions. All tropical flowers need fresh water, misting, and avoidance of heat sources and drafts.
Will my bouquet come pre-arranged?
Your beautiful cut flower bouquets will arrive via FedEx in a specially prepared floral shipping container. Your flowers will be ready for you to arrange in their own special way. Easy arranging instructions, a photo and any needed materials are included with each order.
How should tropical flowers be arranged?
If you wish a loose flower arrangement, clip the ends of each stem at an angle for the flower to feed better and place the stems in either the vase you ordered or your own vase. You can also cut some of the stems shorter than others to vary height. Trim the flowers as you see fit to achieve a pleasing overall shape - this leaves the flowers available for regular trimming so they stay fresh the longest. If you wish a more planned arrangement place the stems one at a time on the counter or in one hand until you're happy with the look, tie the stems together with either a rubber-band or tie-wrap, and trim the bottom of the stems.
Can I change the delivery address?
As long as your order has not been shipped we will be happy to change the delivery address. If the shipment is in route FedEx charges an approximate $15 fee for address changes made after the order has been shipped and before it has been delivered. Please contact us with any changes in delivery information as soon as possible.
Does choosing Overnight Delivery mean my order will arrive tomorrow?
Leis and bouquets can sometimes be packaged and rushed out the same day if we receive the order early enough in the morning; otherwise it goes out the next available Fed Ex business day. Once processed, FedEx either takes one or two days to deliver your order depending on delivery location (West Coast or East Coast) and the delivery option you chose. Also, please keep in mind that orders are not delivered on FedEx holidays or weekends unless Saturday Delivery is available.In addition, there are no weekend deliveries available or same day deliveries available in the state of Hawaii. Mahalo!
Do you accept special requests?
Of course! Special request are no problem. We custom make each order to suit you! Please inquire about the color substitutions or other requests you have by contacting us via phone, fax or e-mail.
