Gunjan thought gifting a plant is something positive and innovative,” she adds. A designer by heart and profession, Gunjan took active interest in giving this concept a new and different touch.
She says that they have a wide range of options to pick from. “Our unique selling point is planters like recycled, wooden, ceramic, glass, cut glass and terracotta. We even use old jeans, tyres and tins too,” she adds. Gunjan mentions that the plants they have are indoor and low-maintenance ones. She says that there are many people who love plants, but are forgetful. For such people, these indoor plants are a choice.
