anyone ever seen this?

Post by miketropic » Tue Nov 06, 2012 1:03 pm

I was just looking around and some how came upon this site http://realpalmtrees.com/ . everything looks nice, except the prices, but it seems very odd to me. these people have just about every known palm for sale in multiple sizes. just dosent seem right that a site I have never heard of, that ships worldwide and has everything possible in the palm world would have gone un noticed by me for so long. anyone ever seen this site or possible ordered from them?

They don't appear to ship outside the USA, so I doubt many people on this site would have dealt with them.

some of those palms are rare and id like to have a few but I just can't bring myself to pay that much and KNOW I'm paying the middle man a good chunk of it.

Even if I was well flush, I wouldn't pay their prices. Thats especially when they call a musa basjoo a palm....and a tree for that matter. When I do part with money, its with somebody who knows roughly what they're selling.

very true I wasnt so concerned with the price as much as I thought it was a complete scam. I found it very hard to beleive someone would have that many palms, some rare, in all sizes in stock and ready to ship.

As FF said, they're a broker not a grower. Probably the middle man for different nurseries and offer drop shipping at escalated prices
