COVID-19 and Wicked Botany.

Rest assured when ordering from us, you’re making the safest choice.  My husband and I are both biologists. I teach genetics and he teaches microbiology.  (He even teaches college students about the differences between antibiotics, antiseptics and disinfectants!) Even though we are still in one of the safer areas of the country (for now! – Southwest Louisiana), the college we work for has transitioned to online classes to stay ahead of the virus.  We have no other employees and our little one is cared for entirely at home as well. And without even any other family in town, we are fully isolated except for mail! There is no reason to believe we have even come close to exposure here.

Furthermore, in light of most accounts suggesting the virus can survive on plastic for longer than it takes to ship even a first class package, you have our promise that we will spray all stages of plastic packaging and bags with 10% sodium hypochlorite (bleach).  We love overkill – it’s already a core part of our business plan, as our existing customers know.  As of this writing, the virus is not expected to live on cardboard for longer than 24 hours.

So, if you have cabin fever as Spring breaks and are longing for a plant fix, we believe we are the safest choice for ordering online!
