When the idea of Sharebloom was being discussed originally between my co-founder and I, she asked me if she thought it would be a smart idea or not to move forward it it considering how small the market cap really was for plants and flowers. She loved the idea of course, but also knows my personal goals and achievements and was wondering if something like this could satiate that.

Retaining water in arid climates or soil? Sounds a lot like a cactus to me. This is because all cacti are part of the succulent plant species. All cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti. Even though it may not have hair-like spines or short prickles, if it has thickened and fleshy skin, it’s probably a succulent. So water it about as much as you would water a cacti.
The water flow was now restricted by a giant mountain range, and mountain ranges produce a lot of water run-off themselves. So all this water wanted to move somewhere. About ten million years ago, waters formed their own path, working through the sandstone to the west and the Amazon began to flow eastward towards the Atlantic ocean. As the water began to spread, so did life. Trees, insects, animals, plants, fertilized soil all followed the water down its path. Because of this, the Amazon rainforest was born.
To learn why plants are green, we actually need to understand light. Light from the sun is actually energy that we classify as radiation, and different wavelengths of radiation produce different colours. So, plants actually absorb that radiation and eat it as food...
As we continued to walk-and-talk she told me she wanted to call it Flower Club. Such a cool name. We discussed how it would operate, and how it should be a monthly subscription so that people could enjoy plants + flowers year round without having to think about going to the local florist to purchase it.
