How it all started

Hi, I'm Alina! I'm an entrepreneur based out of San Diego, I started my @plantflix instagram account in early 2019 as a way to share my interests and hobbies that I did in my spare time to get away from the stressful start-up lifestyle(and not just watch TV all day). I love running the account and have so much fun creating content, which is genuinely not something I thought I'd enjoy considering I'm not the biggest social media fan. Having this outlet to express my interests has been more rewarding than I could have imagined, and I'm even more excited now to have my own shop based on my hobbies! 

 

Why houseplant seeds you may ask? I come from a gardening background and always loved planting new seeds and watching them grow. Living in a condo, however, without much of a backyard, gardening was a tough hobby to maintain so I got into indoor gardening with houseplants! 

At one point, I started searching for houseplant seeds on Ebay and excitedly bought some peperomia and calathea seeds. I started documenting their growth only to find that the seedlings looked nothing like what they were supposed to. I then saw someone else posted about the exact same experience, confirming that those houseplant seed sellers on Ebay and Amazon are scammers(unfortunately). 

So I started looking for other options, and it took me a little while but I managed to find a wholesale grower here in San Diego and now suddenly I have this shop and the support for it has been astounding! 

So, if you want to experiment with plant breeding, or want to experience the fun of growing a beautiful tropical plant from seed(or just don't want to spend as much buying the actual plant) these seeds are the perfect option for you!

If you'd like to support what I'm doing, give me a follow on @plantflix, or buy something from my store! I love connecting with likeminded people, so don't hesitate to send me a message :)
