Plant shops in Indonesia
In the past six months or so most of us have been cooped up in our kosts, apartments, or houses, and some days probably felt us more isolated than others.
Having plants in our living quarters might be a good way to rejuvenate the atmosphere. To help you get started on your home garden, we’ve compiled a list of 8 plant shops in Indonesia that offer various types of plants including low-maintenance ones, pots, tools, as well as other gardening needs.
1. Pottum – elegant terracotta pots in various types and sizes

Nice plants deserve beautifully crafted pots such as the terracotta ones available at Pottum. Their earthy color goes well with green – amplifying the coziness of your home garden.
The pots come in a variety of shapes and sizes – from the small cone-like BLUM 10 (Rp. 50,000, ~USD3.37) to the more conventional ACRI 15 (Rp. 75,000, ~USD5.06).

Information on new batches are updated on Pottum’s Instagram stories, so don’t forget to follow them if a pot you’ve been eyeing is currently out of stock.
2. Urban Little Garden – indoor plants that fit small to large spaces
Filling your home with plenty of greens will make the atmosphere relaxing, and if you happen to have lots of space – such as a patio – you might as well go with the big ones. Urban Little Garden can indeed make your house feel like an urban garden with its stock of lush selections.
The Euphorbia milii (starts from Rp. 300,000, ~USD20.23), also known as the crown of thorns, is one of the plants that’s ideally placed outdoors. It comes with a sturdy terracotta pot so you won’t need to repot it. Alternatively, those looking for a more tropical vibe can opt for the peace lily (Rp. 400,000, ~USD26.97), which has big juicy leaves.
Sansevieria trifasciata variegata

Kost or apartment dwellers, don’t feel left out. There’re also smaller plants such as the sansevieria trifasciata variegata (Rp. 185,000, ~USD12.47), or variegated snake plant, that are ideal to place on your dining table or desk.
Simply send Urban Little Garden a WhatsApp (081319751588) message containing a screenshot of your desired plant along with your details.
3. Primrose Garden – fresh herbs for cooking

If the quarantine has made you think about growing your own cooking ingredients, Primrose Garden offers chives (Rp. 35,000, ~USD2.36) and herbs such as Greek thyme (Rp. 52,000, ~USD3.50) and chocolate mint (Rp. 40,000, ~USD2.70) – which has a stronger smell than regular mint.

Beginner gardeners who still don’t have a pretty pot collection to house their plants can easily ask Grow and Grow for an upgrade. Instead of having your order delivered in a polybag or standard plastic planter that most plant shops in Indonesia provide, you can also get it in a terracotta pot that goes well with the plant. For example, a parijoto, or medinilla speciosa in a polybag costs Rp. 125,000 (~USD8.42). By adding Rp. 100,000 (~USD6.73), you’ll have a nice NOKU pot to go with it.
There are many types and sizes of plants on offer – from small cotyledon succulents (Rp. 50,000, ~USD3.37) to lipstick plants (Rp. 100,000 , ~USD6.73) that are perfect to hang in your home.
