I've ordered from Ken several times. I ordered Bromeliads, and got wonderful plants, extremely well packed and ready to just take off beautifully. They began putting out pups the first week they were potted up.

I would like to add my strong endorsement and recommendation to Tropical Plants & More. I ordered a rooted plumeria from drdawg and the plant far exceeded my expectations with regards to size and condition. It's simply a beautiful plant and the pricing structure used by the good Doctor makes sense and results in a very high quality plant at a tremendous price point. My plant even had an inflo. Shipping was quick and the packing was superb. If he offers what you are looking for in a plant then look no further as you are highly unlikely to find better quality than offered by Tropical Plants & More and certainly won't at this price point. BTW he is extremely helpful and just a pleasure to interact with.

I ordered 3 orchids from Ken during one of his sales to NGA members. Prices were very reasonable. The packaging was done so well that 2 of the orchids that had blooms arrived totally intact! I got to enjoy the flowers upon arrival. The other orchid hasn't bloomed yet, but was purchased with a cypress mount which I really liked! I would highly recommend Tropical Plants and More. And I will be watching for future sales by Ken.

I have ordered plants from Ken on a couple of occasions--bromeliads, gingers, plumerias. Each time, I've been impressed with the size and quality of his plants. He offers great deals to NGA members from time to time, which I take advantage of. He's been very accommodating with my requests (change in order, etc.) and has been willing to work with me (and very patient) to make sure that I am more than happy with my purchases.

Tropical Plants & More comes highly recommended, not to mention that the owner is one of our members right here, drdawg (Ken Ramsey). I've ordered a few times and received lush happy plants in record time. Ken is full of knowledge about his orchids and offers a wide range of nice plants and some rare ones. Don't hesitate to put in an order.

Ken Ramsey has been incredible from purchase to his helpfulness after the purchase.

I received two orchids from Ken. Excellent packing ensured they arrived in great shape even when the shipper mangled the box. This was such a smooth transaction. They shipped quickly and were well prepared beforehand, having been watered before shipping and then carefully wrapped. All questions and concerns were answered very quickly; it's nice to know he's just an e-mail away if I have questions or concerns. And the prices are great!

Today I received 3 lb of garlic from Ken and 3 ground orchids. Oh my! The garlic smells wonderful, and the orchids don't even know they have left the ground. I potted them up right way. Ken sends good plants and fresh, tasty garlic! I will order from him again!

I placed an order with Ken over at Tropical Plants & More, consisting of 1 Celadine rooted cutting and 2 Cattleya Orchids. I could not be happier with how smooth the transaction went. The packaging was perfect and the plants were delivered in 2 days. They all arrived in perfect condition and are super healthy. Thank you, Ken, for your help and prompt delivery. I see more transactions in our future!! Great seller, folks. You cannot go wrong.

Adding my enthusiastic endorsement of Ken and his beautiful plants! I've ordered Plumeria cuttings and Tillandsias from him. He couldn't be more helpful, packing and shipping are excellent, and the plants are fantastic, at excellent prices. Plus, he has a lovely habit of offering special deals on the sales and group buys forum here. Thanks, Ken!!

I ordered two Orchids and a plumeria cutting (one I desperately wanted) from Tropical Plants & More. I cannot say enough kind things about Ken or his shop. My plants arrived very quickly, in wonderful condition, and with super precise packaging. Now I like Ken, not only as a person, but also as a vendor/merchant. He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and answered every question I could possibly have. Ken's prices are competitively well priced for a small business, and you can be assured that his plants are extremely well taken care of and grown with care. You can tell that he truly loves what he does!

Enthusiastically recommend Tropical Plants and Drdawg. I ordered 6 white butterfly ginger rhizomes and 2 plumeria cuttings. Arrived in well-packed box, everything in great condition. The Plumies were exceptionally eye popping and three times bigger than those I bought at Philadelphia Flower Show. Drdawg takes pride in his business and it shows. Great quality and a great experience.

So very happy with my newest plant, a Ficus alii. The packing was impeccable, so careful, and the tree made it across the country and still looks great. I'm looking forward to future purchases from Tropical Plants & More.

It's taken me a little while to write this but I still just can't say enough wonderful things about Ken and Tropical Plants & More. In November I received a pretty large box of orchids from Ken and was simply in awe!

Was I ever surprised at the size and beauty of these HUGE bromeliads that arrived today from Ken (Tropical Plants & More). They're in a temporary container just until I can get them properly situated. I was very comfortable ordering from him, especially since he is a master gardener. And I was acquainted from his posts (and help) on this site. He included an insert telling how to care for the plants - very helpful. You won't be disappointed if you order from him. Prices are very reasonable and quality is exceptional !

I just received my order of Voodoo Doll bromeliads from Ken at Tropical Plants and More. His prices were very reasonable, and since he's a regular in many of the ATP forums, I felt comfortable ordering from him. When I opened the box, I was thrilled to see such huge and healthy plants! Wow! They were well-packaged, in great condition, and much bigger than I expected. I've already planted them in my yard I'm sure I'll be ordering from him again.

I don't think that I can express my satisfaction any more/better than those before me. I do have to say that Ken was gracious enough to check the weather in my location and hold off shipping so the Plumie cuts wouldn't be subjected to temperatures below 45.

I would like to give Tropical Plants & More a big thumbs-up. I ordered 3 sets of the bromeliads Ken had for sale this fall. Two sets were to be my Christmas gifts to my mother-in-law and my brother-in-law and the other for me. The plants arrived wonderfully packaged - not crowded, well wrapped, and in beautiful condition. These were all young plants of varying but good sizes, and unbloomed, so that they are still in the growing cycle, not on the decline. He also included some extras. I repackaged them in BIG gift bags and gave them to them over Thanksgiving (I don't think I'll be traveling anywhere come Christmas since I'm getting a new knee next week.) Both of my in-laws were thrilled with both the variety of the bromeliads - Michii and VooDoo - as well as the size and beauty of these. I'm looking forward to getting some more plants from Ken. Thanks, Drdawg!

I would like to give a hearty endorsement for Tropical Plants & More. I just received an order from Ken yesterday, which consisted of 3 rooted plumerias, 2 plumeria cuttings, and 2 gingers. The packing was the best. No worries on whether your order will arrive in great shape. Ken checks the weather on his end and the destination so there won't be any problems in that department. It was a cold day on the planned shipping day, so Ken contacted me to let me know of the delay and included a "bonus" plant for waiting. He did not need to do this, but it is much appreciated. The plants themselves are very sturdy and healthy, which is the bottom line. The prices are the best to be found. Can't say enough good things. Thanks, Ken! Picture of the nice healthy plumeria below.

I took advantage of Ken's Fall 2015 Blow out and ordered two Plumerias: a rooted Celadine and a cutting of Vera Cruz Rose. They arrived in very short order and the shipping box impressed me. A very high-quality, triangular-shaped container that was not about to be crushed or smashed. I have received too many of those.

I ordered 6 Bromeliads from Tropical Plants & More and they are so amazing. Not only did some have babies, but they are also really, really big and healthy. I will be ordering more from Tropical Plants & More and I highly recommend them for awesome plants.

I recently ordered two of the "White Butterfly" ginger plants, during the "dog days of summer" promotion where everything was discounted by 25%. Normally when I find plants for an end-of-season sale price, I pretty much expect them to look like the bargains they are, but that was definitely not true in this case! These plants arrived in perfect condition, carefully packed, and I received not only the two plants that I had ordered, but also an extra huge piece of rhizome and a Canna Lily, as well as a page of helpful information about how to plant and grow them. I was happy to have a tracking number so I knew exactly when they would be arriving, as our rural mail carrier has been known to leave packages in some strange places (including delivering to the wrong house altogether). I truly could not be happier with this transaction -- thanks, DrDawg!

I ordered my first ever real orchid, a Ficus alii, and a plumeria cutting from Ken and they were superbly packed, they arrived in perfect condition, and he is very generous with advice on how to take care of them. I'd definitely buy again, sooo worth it.

I bought heirloom garlic. Everything about the transaction, and most importantly the garlic, could not have been better. Professional and seamless, but it's the garlic...Oh man, was that garlic an awesome surprise. I ordered it to plant in the fall. I roasted one clove of each variety to "test" it. Let's just say I wont be planting this year. Ended up eating it all :-)

Made my first purchase from Tropical Plants & More and what a pleasant transaction that was. Not only is Ken extremely easy to deal with, he is so helpful and considerate there is no doubt when the plants arrive, you will know what to do with them to keep them alive and happy.

I received my plumeria and orchid on Wednesday and they were both larger specimens than I had thought I was getting. They arrived in excellent condition, which I am sure, in part, was because of how Ken had them packed. I am very happy with the plants, the speed in which I got them after I told Ken the weather was probably settled down enough for him to send them, and the way they were packed. I give Tropical Plants and More 5 stars (out of 5). :>)

I read about the Ficus maclellandii 'Alii' on the Tropical Plants & More website and it looked and sounded so wonderful that I ordered one, along with a White Butterfly Ginger. They were shipped on a Monday and arrived on Wed., well packaged and looking fresh and fabulous! Both plants came with a laminated plant tag and an entire page of detailed info and culture tips, special touches that add to the entire ordering experience. You can tell Ken is a plant lover!

When I decided to grow orchids again, after an almost twenty-year hiatus, I was a little worried: My original attempts had been in Houston, Texas, where you can succeed merely by hanging your plants from trees or fences with dappled shade. Need more orchids? There are several commercial growers with wide varieties of species. Want a book or two? Bookstores abound.

Gee, I'm sorry I'm so late in writing this review. Last summer I ordered a couple of orchids and a bark slab mount for my Staghorn Fern and I can't express how happy I was with my purchases. Tropical Plants and More gets an A+ from me. Ken offers quality products and very healthy plants! The packing and shipping were outstanding and the plants were perfect upon arrival. I will definitely be a returning customer!

Ken sent me five orchids at an outstanding price. They were all brilliantly labeled, with a nice laminated card that had a photo of the orchid's bloom and the name. They were all potted in a lovely, handcrafted mix and arrived happy as can be. Before my order, Ken spent a lot of time discussing plants with me and helping me choose what I wanted based on our conversation. He's all over the forums, always helpful, and is totally reachable. It's more like having an orchid buddy than a commercial supplier.

I recently placed my very first order with Tropical Plants & More for 2 orchids, potting media, and a wood slab for mounting a staghorn fern. I give this vendor A+ for communication, customer service, and healthy plants. I was very pleased when my package arrived. It was obvious that careful packing went into the shipping of my plants. One orchid was in bloom and both were in perfect condition upon arrival.

I received my third order of orchid plants from Ken yesterday and, once again, was impressed. The plants were meticulously packed so that, when they were unpacked, they were in perfect condition and there was not even one bit of growing medium in the box or wrappings. The plants themselves were large, robust plants, some with flower spikes, so healthy and green that they look good even when they are not in bloom! I really cannot say enough about Ken's obvious love of orchids, his attention to detail, and his kindness and patience in answering all of my questions. He has a very nice assortment of plants too: I saw one plant on his website that I loved, but it was sold out, so I searched on the Internet for that variety. I found a few but they didn't look as nice as Ken's plants. Luckily for me, he posted a couple more on his website and I couldn't order one quickly enough! Now that I see it, I'm so glad I did, what a beauty that plant is! Thank you, Ken!

Hard to believe that I've never owned a houseplant and chose orchids as my learning curve. It's a stretch and a challenge, but I will try to ensure they don't meet their demise.

I am very pleased to be able to add my voice in recommending Tropical Plants & More. Though I've not ordered Orchids from Ken yet, I look forward to it in the near future! I have ordered supplies that I just can't find locally. My first purchase was a gorgeous piece of Portuguese Cork for mounting a baby Staghorn fern that I had acquired from a friend. The quality and beauty of this piece along with the affordable price were very intriguing. The care taken in packaging this piece was outstanding. I knew then that I'd definitely be shopping here again. Ken's passion for Orchids and tropical plants is contagious. He is always available, and he has a true desire for you to succeed in growing all these beauties. He's not just a seller; he is a teacher! He is always there to answer even what may seem to be the silliest of questions, which for a "newbie" like me, is invaluable. My most recent purchase of an 8 qt. Special Cattleya Mix was so beautifully mixed, and so generous, that I'll have to be adding to my orchid "collection" soon! Along with a sprayer/mister, that has become my all-time favorite!

Just received my second order of orchids and I am very pleased. I have ordered from other suppliers and after a year only half of the ordered plants have survived. Tropical Plants and More sells orchids that are well established and healthy, so their survival rate has been 100% so far. Ken is a real pleasure to deal with and gives excellent customer service and communication. It is great to deal and communicate with a real person that is knowledgeable; a real rarity today. Each of my orchids comes marked with a picture of a mature plant blooming. Helps me stay patient while waiting for the plant to bloom because orchids take their own time. Cannot say enough about this supplier.
