Actress and certified plantita Aubrey Miles is showing tremendous support for online plant sellers.
Miles is giving these fellow plant lovers the love because she is inspired by online plant sellers’ stories, she explained in her Instagram post yesterday, Dec. 19.
“I know you’ve been seeing me supporting a lot of new online sellers, especially now that shipments are starting to open again,” she said. “Signs that somehow prices of plants will slowly normalize. Maybe it’ll take years but for sure it will happen one day.”
“Anyway, I do support nurseries like [Arid & Aroids] because they’re one of the pioneers,” she said, adding that she’s known them since she started her plant collection. “I think most of you understand it. Most reputable and trusted of collectors and sellers too.”
Miles also appreciates online sellers because they had different jobs and stories before the pandemic.
“This wasn’t their main source of income. I admire what they’re doing now. Can you imagine most of them started their plant business during lockdown?” she said.
Miles is happy that most online sellers are doing brisk sales now, all because of their hard work and perseverance.
“No wonder they’re so many online plant sellers now. Because they inspire each other. You know that saying ‘If you can do it, I can do it, too,’” she added. “Building a good business in a matter of months is pretty impressive. Tama ba? Galing ‘di ba? Mahal man or mura ang halaman lahat tayo working hard.”
(Isn’t that right? Isn’t that great? Whether a plant is expensive or not, we are all working hard.)
