As each plant is unique, be sure to photograph and describe the plants in detail. List down your terms and shipping options clearly to avoid issues.
Succulents, cacti, herbs, and indoor plants such as the snake plant and money plant are a few popular choices in the Philippines. Alternatively, you can take a different approach by selling rare plants that are hard to find in the Philippines. However, the demand for such plants are lesser, and it will be harder to find the right plant suppliers so conduct your research first before you embark on this.
Shipping plants is tricker than shipping regular products such as apparels as they are usually fragile. So it is important to make sure your plants are well-protected and secured with bubble wrap to prevent any damage to the leaves and stems. Also add sphagnum moss to the roots to keep your plants hydrated during shipping. When shipping your plants internationally, check if you require a phytosanitary certificate to clear the custom. And always label your package as fragile and include any special handling instructions to prevent damages.
Social media is a good way to start promoting your online plant business.
