Meet Yemen's 'Plant Man'

STORY: Meet Yemen’s ‘Plant Man’

What first started as a hobby

has turned into an

entrepreneurial project for him


“I was laid off during the COVID-19 pandemic. During that time I used to spend a lot of time at home, so I bought a lot of plants and propagated the plants that I had. My house transformed into a forest. Then I started thinking - why don’t I start a project related to plants. This has always been my passion, and I have a lot of knowledge and years of experience in it.”

Shayeh set up his social media page in April 2021

where he would share tips

and information on caring for plants

As the page grew more popular

he started selling the plants he grew at home

“Currently, there are many people who don’t see plants as a priority in their lives. But the service we provide through ‘Plant Man’ encourages interest, whether this is because we offer a variety of plants, or the consultation we offer customers before their purchase and after, so that they can care for the plants.”
