Tiny Forest

In addition to her many talents, Malaysian songstress Yuna also started a plant delivery business with her mum. Tiny Forest specialises in indoor potted plants and terrariums with an artisanal twist, lighting up even the dreariest space. Expect about three days for deliveries within the Klang Valley or next-day delivery for orders made before 1pm one day prior. There are even DIY terrarium kits for kids and adults, plant starter kits for beginner gardeners and a delightful chrome mini gardening tool set, so you'll be spoilt for choice on plant-related gift ideas.

Daun

Founded by eco-warriors and 'plantrepreneurs' Sara Dalina and Kerstin McGuire, Daun is living its mission to make urban gardens a trend among Klang Valley folk. Aside from an impressive collection of indoor and outdoor plants, plant accessories and care kits, Daun also draws from the expertise of its founders to offer unique products like a vertical gardening set-up and even plant LED lighting options. Delivery areas include Kuala Lumpur and Selangor only. 

Tip: For every purchase above RM250, Daun will work with a local NGO to allocate one tree to be planted as part of its commitment to the natural environment.

Pasu

Pasu's Kuala Lumpur outlets at LINC KL and Publika and its Petaling Jaya store at The Starling Mall have amassed a steady following of plant lovers over the years. The MCO forced this plucky plant business to stay on its feet and prioritise plant delivery services within the Klang Valley. 

Aside from just selling indoor plants, Pasu also strives to be a helpful resource for urbanites today with tips on preserving plants and developing a better green thumb.
