Isn’t life a funny thing? One moment you’re up, the next you’re down. No wonder people refer to life as a roller coaster sometimes. You know what? It actually makes it far more interesting this way. Just imagine life would be same old thing every single day. That would be quite boring, wouldn’t it? But for Renz Maryll Sexcion Manaloto from General Santos City, she just keeps going through this roller coaster called life with the help of her business that provides indoor Herb garden kits to wanna be plantito and plantitas!

Maryll have been working as a cabin crew for almost five months. When she was still a child, she dreamt of having her own hacienda, indoor herb garden, and greenhouses. “I have dreamt of becoming a flight attendant, model, and an astronaut, too. But I was raised by my parents through the love and help of agriculture. That’s why I pursued a course related to it and became an Agricultural and Biosystems Engineer in 2018,” she added, “I explored many things because the more you explore, the more you learn. I joined the world of pageantry, modeling, became a flight attendant, and now, I'm pursuing my number one dream which is the Green Dream.”
The pandemic taught her of “Diskarte, Hindi Arte” mantra. As a cabin crew, the coronavirus has majorly impacted the aviation industry. Hence, she thought of other ways to move forward that will commensurate her learnings as well as pursue her goals. “Since online selling is mainstream nowadays, my mom encouraged me to try selling indoor plants using my personal Facebook account. I customized the pots and sell those aesthetic indoor plants. Post it on my account and boom-sold out,” shared Maryll.
Maryll and her best friend, John Lord Auman, a licensed and registered Agriculturist decided to merge their plants and herbs business into The Green Dream Plants and Herbs on Facebook. They switched to online selling and offer aesthetic indoor plants, indoor herb gardens through bucket herbs (5 herbs in a pot), and different kinds of individual potted herbs. “Going green indoors has always been a relaxing recreational sight and activity during this time. Since people are home, they want to feel better at home. Having indoor and outdoor plants will really help in filtering the surrounding air. Also, it provides people a personal escape by collecting these plants and doing gardening through the indoor herb garden,” shared Maryll.
To those people losing hope during this time, Maryll has this to say: “Let us look for the greener and brighter side of this chapter. Remember, don’t let the pandemic stop you from doing what you can do. Instead, make this challenge as an opportunity to grow and still believe in tomorrow.” #ChooseHope #BuyNaKayJuan
