Gifting a plant instead of conventional New Year gifts will soon become an in thing,” say IT employees turned ‘green entrepreneurs’ Mallela Satya and Puli Ashwini Reddy. “Give us a call and we will deliver the plants.”

The duo were puzzled that everything except plants were available online. “This struck us and we started the company -- Plant Life. We were contacted by nearly 200 people,” the duo said. “Flowers and plants convey emotions. Giving Bonsai as a gift is in vogue in the west. But it is not found here in India. I’m surprised that nobody thought about gifting plants before. We are now planning to start an online nursery very soon,” says Puli Ashwini Reddy.

The start-up supplies about 80 varieties of plants. These include indoor, outdoor, creepers, flowering, decorative, bonsai and many other varieties. “We want to inculcate the culture of gifting plants on every important occasion. We want people to gift plants and saplings on these occasions. We would like to see the day where people very proudly post on Facebook the photographs of gifting plants,” the duo says.

“For us it is a social entrepreneurship. Till now we have been working. But we want to take gifting of plants as our business and we want to take it very seriously. It gives us a lot of satisfaction,” they said. Those interested in gifting green this year can contact the firm on 7842552119.
