The Ordering Process


Our ordering process is designed to be as simple as possible. Our ordering process can be broken down to five steps.


1. Choose Your Items
We invite you to peruse our site and choose from our selection of carnivorous plants, supplies and gifts. Pick out the plants you're interested in, and then call us or email us (our contact info is at the bottom of every page), and we'll prepare a draft invoice and a PayPal request. Please note that we return voicemails on the same day (typically weekdays after 5PM, weekends all day), and emails as well (typically weekdays after 7PM, weekends throughout the day.)
2. Schedule Delivery
Bayonne NJ - We can do deliveries in front of the Amazon Warehouse (W. 4th St. @ Ave A) in Bayonne, by appointment. Our delivery windows to Bayonne are between 5:30PM and 8:00PM on weeknights, or any requested time (if available) on Sundays.

Secaucus NJ - We can do deliveries at the bus stop at County Ave @ Dorigo Lane (in front of the Hudson County Juvenile Detention Center)  in Secaucus, by appointment. Our delivery windows to Secaucus are between 12:30PM and 1:00PM on weekdays, or between 4:30 and 5:30PM on weeknights.

Manhattan NYC - We are offering very limited deliveries to Manhattan by appointment. Please see the front page of the website for upcoming delivery windows to Manhattan.

Brooklyn NY - We can also do deliveries that coincide with our periodic free workshops in Brooklyn. Please see our Education page for upcoming Brooklyn events.

Deliveries outside of those times/locations may be requested for an additional fee. Once the delivery details are worked out, we'll email you the draft invoice and the payment request.
  • For standard orders, we ask that you request a delivery at least two days in advance.

  • Next-day delivery can be requested. If available, next-day delivery will incur a $4 rush fee for orders under $20, and $5 rush fee for orders $20+. A phone number must be provided; requests must be placed before 5:30PM. Placing rush requests by phone (rather than by email) is recommended.
  • Same-day delivery service is not available.

(USPS Postal shipping is also an available option, by request.)

3. Place Your Order

After you've received your invoice and payment request, you can use PayPal to pay for your purchases using a credit card. Midtown Carnivores will not have any access to your credit card information, and if you have a PayPal account, your purchase will be fully protected.

4. Receive Delivery

If you are unable to find us at the pickup location, please contact us at 347-GO-4-VFTs (347-464-8387); likewise, if we are unable to locate you at the pickup location within 20 minutes of the pickup time, we will attempt to contact you by phone.

Plants will be shipped via USPS, with tracking number provided upon dispatch.

5. After Delivery

All plants are already potted when delivered. Care sheets for your ordered plants will be provided with your order at pickup. Our live plants are easy to grow and maintain, if the care sheet directions are followed. Please contact us by phone or email with any problems. If you are a first-time purchaser and you are having difficulty with a beginner plant, we may refund or replace it once within seven days of purchase. See our Policy page for details.
