Branching into 2023.

Branching into 2023.

November and December are crucial times for small businesses like me. It's our one last deciding factor to know whether your business this year is a success, work in progress or it's time to move it back to hobby. Since we started in late 2018. We've had close to 60 or so competition. We've also had bigger establishments switching to model after us and the way we navigate which is via community. Honestly when we started booming in 2019, I was unsure how to exercise my role in the plant community. I was at that time and till now, have...

Final chapter of Pasarplant

Final chapter of Pasarplant

Hey Plant Folks! For those who have followed us, we did a secret market stall back in October last year named Pasarplant. We even made an Instagram for it! It was situated in Jalan Batu market. It was a vibrant and quaint market space. The neighbours were so loving and kind.  We decided to do it open it quietly and only associated with Littlebotany later on. We wanted it to start organically and find its own footing without Littlebotany's influence.  The market stall was made for a purpose. One was to bridge the older folks into the hobby and second,...

So when Punggol ended almost abruptly, it was quite a big adjustment for me and...

Hey plant folks! Thank you so much for your beautiful words and comments in regards to our previous plantblog entry. For those who shared with me their own personal experiences, let us hope it gets better one day.  The entry today is a bit spooky so if you are not a fan of horror or supernatural, skip this chapter. These incidents happened to me and to a few others. I try not to believe in the supernatural that much as I am a believer of science but sometimes there are just something you cannot explain.   So Littlebotany was originally...

Plot of Dreams and Nightmares

Plot of Dreams and Nightmares

Good day plant folks! Today's post might be quite upsetting and deals with some mental health issues. If you are sensitive to these issues. Please do not continue.Chapter 3 - Dream turned into nightmare. We were so blessed to be given an opportunity by Social Innovation Park, to be able to rent the space for our Littlebotany project. I am super surprised that they liked my super amateur proposal. At that time I had a broken computer(still broken) and I literally drew out what I imagined Littlebotany would looked like. Ash helped me with the content. Sarah even helped me...
