From books, electronics, clothes and home accessories, Amazon sells plants now!

siliconreview From books, electronics, clothes and home accessories, Amazon sells plants now!

Amazon, the online store is adding another product category to the mix: plants.

This week, the online retail giant unveiled Amazon’s Plants Store, a section of its website that is particularly dedicated to buying things like shrubs, flowers, and succulents.

Visitors, who want to buy, can shop for plants by brand and sort and choose plants by whether they’re for the garden, inside, or gifts.

There is a wide range of plant options, price points and even different categories to search through. For instance, if you’re looking to bring life to your once-covered-in-snow patio, you can try looking in the “For Your Garden & Patio” section. You’ll find everything from succulents to orchids and more available through the retail giant.

Prices are on-par with what is expected to be paid elsewhere for the same plants. A potted orchid runs $24.99 on the site while a 4-inch Aloe Vera plant comes in at just a little over $10. Most of the plants appear to be Prime eligible as well, so you can get free two-day delivery of them if you’re a member.

If you don’t exactly have a green thumb, the store also offers a bit of information on each type of plant to help customers buy the type of plant they want and are able to keep it alive, at least for a little while.

Good news for existing or new Prime customers, too: The Amazon Plants Store offers free two-day shipping for Prime members, so you’ll receive the perks of your membership even for live plants.

As far as how these plants ship, it seems to vary depending on what type of plant you’re getting. If you live in a cold area and you’re worried about getting plants shipped to your climate. However, the plant store does only seem to be shipping within the contiguous United States.
