Even getting foods was no excuse!

I don’t know who started it but the idea of having live plants as the new mainstream hobby is without a doubt one of the most successful breakthroughs.

Nowadays, the internet have been providing us everything needed to live a life.

Scindapsus Variegated from Indonesia

I think it’s legit to say that Indonesia is the home of many if not most of Scindapsus known today. Early on our launch of this store, we had little choice for Scindapsus plants. Even the non-variegated ones. Just then we added new selections of Scindapsus plants.

Ever wonder how and when did these plants come to live? I have. How in the world am I not aware of these beautiful Scindapsus plants.

Scindapsus is one of the easiest plants to ever care. They don’t need bright sunlight, prefer cooler space and temperature, perfect to be called as “houseplant” as they require less watering as well. But to grow? Hmmm I would suggest to think it twice if you ever want to propagate them and grow them by growth points. That’s taking forever. Also to purchase cuttings of Scindapsus, just be ready for a very long wait of new growth.

Hoya from Indonesia

Again, Indonesia should be one of the homes to Hoya too. But there’s not much of choices in our store so audiences have been asking about them. If you do, don’t hesitate to contact us!

Alocasia from Indonesia

Borneo, Indonesia has been one of the many homes to a lot of tropical live plants. In this case it’s Alocasia. Without a doubt, the westerns love them so much for some reasons. Not just the westerns, Thailand also made some decisive decision on importing tons of bulbs and plants from Indonesia in the previous 2-3 years. Not only bulbs, they also prefer tubers over full-plant complete with the leaves.
