A: Once you receive your shipping confirmation email, check the tracking page for the scheduled delivery date.

A: Please log in to your account and go to the tracking page. 



Q: My order arrived damaged. What do I do?

A: We do not accept returns on items containing live plants, except they arrive damaged/defective. Every plant is fragile, and the shipping process is not always kind (and sometimes the delivery guys are even less kind). Please inspect your package when you accept the delivery. Should your order arrive damaged, email a photo to [email protected] along with the order number within 48hours of receiving the delivery. We’ll happily exchange your order or issue a refund. Please do not ship any packages back to Taman Hayat without prior notification.

Q: What is your return policy? Can I make a refund?

A: If you are ordering living plants, please check our return policy on living plants. Other than living plants, we accept returns for refund or exchange within 14 days of purchase provided that items are returned back to Taman Hayat in their original unused condition. If you’d like to make a return, please email [email protected] and we will reply with further instructions. Please note that we cannot refund shipping fees, and the customer is responsible for return shipping fees. Taman Hayat is not responsible if the returned package is lost or the item is damaged in the mail. 

Q: Can I make a refund for the sale item?

A: Please note that all sales are final on discounted items, returns are not possible. 



Q: Will I get the same plant or item as shown in the image?

A: Other than the items shown on the supplies page and special collection, the answer will be no. You will receive your own unique item. Each plant is unique. They won’t look exactly the same as the other (although they are in the same families/species/types) due to their natural variation. 

When you order handmade pottery that we develop collaboratively with our team of potters, you select a one-of-a-kind piece, and we take great pride in each work being different from another. Thus you can expect differences in size, shape, and color. Nonetheless, aren’t they the charm of artisan pottery? 

Finally, if you feel unhappy with the differences in your order and what is shown in the image online, please contact us at [email protected]

Q: What do I need to know about receiving live plants in the mail?

A: Plants need immediate care upon receiving. First of all, don’t get panicked by a small amount of leaf loss as this is normal and expected. Your plants will be tired from their journey and need to be exposed to light and watered thoroughly upon arrival. Please refer to the care instructions included in your package. To ensure that your piece adjusts to your environment, please place it in an appropriate location and refrain from relocating for at least two weeks.
