You don’t have to go to IKEA every time you want to purchase plants for your home – these plant nurseries in KL will do just the trick.
Way before IKEA existed, our parents and grandparents used to shop for plants at plant nurseries. You might even have gone along for long car rides to Sungai Buloh and looked on in boredom as your parents went through flowering shrubs, trees, and leafy pot plants before settling on a few. Now is your turn to do the same by heading to these plant nurseries in KL.
Why plant nurseries? For one, the variety of species they have are vast. Way beyond your Instagrammable indoor plants, these plant nurseries offer more kinds that you might have not even considered to get. Think along the lines of differently-sized and coloured snake plants, maybe a jade plant, a pitcher plant, or even a spider plant.
Another reason is the expert advice that you’ll get while you’re there. The staff working at these plant nurseries come equipped with knowledge of all the plants that they have in their repertoire. Chat with them as you’re choosing your plant, and they’ll be able to advise you on what will suit your lifestyle and home best. They’ll also school you on how to best care for your plant – some may not need watering as often as you think they do. Finally – and this will change your mind for good – they’re cheaper than the modern plant nurseries you’ll find in shopping malls.
