You don’t have to go to Sungai Buloh nursery every time you want to purchase plants for your home – these plant nurseries in Malaysia will do just the trick. Not only do they offer a variety of indoor and outdoor potted plants, but they also sell a wide range of accessories to spruce up your garden.
Thanks to the global pandemic, more and more people are spending time at home in hope to curb the deadly Covid-19 disease. And what do people do during the Movement Control Order (MCO) and Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO)? Some spend their lockdown binging on Netflix, some started training to be the next MasterChef and then there are some who took the opportunity to spruce up their home. One easy way to do it is to add indoor plants to your home. Not only do they add aesthetic value to your home, but some plants can also help “detoxify” indoor air.
Way before IKEA like online furniture shops existed, our parents and grandparents used to shop for plants at plant nurseries. You might even have gone along for long car rides to Sg Buloh nursery or Cameron Highlands nursery and looked on in boredom as your parents went through flowering shrubs, trees, and leafy pot plants before settling on a few. Now you just have to google “plant nursery near me” or “gardening shop near me” and you’ll find a long list of nurseries in Malaysia.
Why plant nurseries? For one, the variety of species they have are vast. Way beyond your Instagrammable garden 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 plant flowers and other varieties of indoor and outdoor plants– 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.
