During the first week of MCO,
I felt like I was going crazy. I was stuck alone in my family’s condo with absolutely no other living beings. The only human interaction I had was with Grabfood drivers & the postman but even they didn’t stay long (or near. Social distancing, people).
Bored & lonely out of mind, I tried occupying myself with learning new recipes, reading books, rewatching my favourite TV series & many more, I was! just! so bored of it all!
Then my boyfriend suggested something I’ve been keen on trying: gardening.
Or for the more lazy person living in an apartment: plant keeping.
Yeah, what a helpful suggestion when all nurseries was closed.
But we live in the internet era & thankfully I found lots of online plant stores in Malaysia!
What kind of plants can I keep indoors with minimal light + space?
This is the kind of question you gotta ask yourself FIRST before getting a plant.
As we all learnt in Science class, plants need light for photosynthesis to eat. So any parts of your house with windows are all strategic plant spots.
I won’t be telling you a list of appropriate plants to get because the fun is in searching up on what kind of plants can thrive & survive indoors! Trust me, there’s a bunch of Youtube videos, websites, Reddit posts & Instagram accounts dedicated to houseplants.
But remember low-light DOESN’T mean no light so if you’re living somewhere without windows or planning to put your plant in a windowless bathroom, invest in grow lights or a brighter light bulb; your plants will still need light (however little) to eat!
Now, let’s see Woke’s list of Online Plant Stores in Malaysia!
1. Plant & Pot Studio
Situated in Puchong, Plant & Pot Studio is a curated plant retail store. What does that mean? It means the selection of plants they offer to customers is carefully selected with a keen attention to design, form and function.
They offer both indoor & outdoor plants.
Plant & Pot Studio also has a plant cafe, a nice “sipping corner” to drink coffee & eat desserts while surrounded by plants.
Due to the current MCO, Plant & Pot Studio only does appointment-based walk-ins with only 2 people per visit.
But for delivery to Klang Valley (RM15):
Orders received by 12pm : Next 1-3 days delivery
Orders received after 12pm : Delivery within 4 days
Other states delivery (RM45):
Delivery to other states via courier shall take place on every Monday.
For orders received by 12pm on Sunday, the items will be sent for shipping the next day.
For orders received after 12pm on Sunday, the items will be sent for shipping on the following Monday.
2. Renjana Plant Shop
As we know during the MCO, many courier services faced an influx of parcels to deliver. A couple of online plant stores opt to use local courier services to ship your plants but this means you could end up with a dead plant that was stuck in the warehouse for too long.
Thankfully Renjana delivers via Lalamove to guarantee that your plants reach safely on time. This also means shipping costs vary from place to place.
The one thing we like about Renjana is that they categorize plants according to low-light & pet-friendly! So if you’re too lazy to do your own research…..
Note: Prices of plants do not include pot.
Orders are delivered on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
3. Pokok House
Newly opened in 2020, Pokok House wants to provides customers with the best living ornamental plants.

8. Doro Life
Doro or Dóro was conceived after founder CarrieAnne was surprised by a pot of succulents sitting by her desk with a short note of well wishes from her landlady when she was abroad at that time.
This helped her start a new passion for nurturing various plants & succulents.
Upon returning to Malaysia, Dóro was founded to spread the art of curating succulents as a gift of inspiration for others just like CarrieAnne and her landlady.
