Green Planet – A Little Backstory About How The Channel Came Into Existence
Reshma Ranjan got a government job after completing her studies; however, she was not satisfied, as she thought the prickly world of government jobs was only cutting her wings to soar high in her quest to have a green planet.
This energetic soul decided to move out of the mundane and truly pursue her true calling, a green planet, and gardening and her love for gardening and plants motivated her to do something different. The calling of her mind to create a green planet was to share her knowledge of terrace and kitchen gardening with others.
So what did she do? She looked to explore the potential of the internet to make an impact, and boy, has she delivered!
She first launched a YouTube channel named “Nature in Pot” in 2016, where she created content for making terrariums and plant arrangements. However, on that channel, with the help of feedback from people, she got to know that the main issue for the majority of people was to keep their plants healthy, and here she made up her mind to create a different channel to help people facing issues related to gardening and plantation through her acquired knowledge.
As they say, “Where there is a will, there is a way” The same happened to her when one of her videos of her planting rose flowers went viral, and she got attention online. This is how she got a big push toward pursuing her dream of making a green planet by sharing her knowledge about plants and gardening.
From then on, she has not looked back and has more than 1 million subscribers on Youtube and thousands of subscribers on social medial channels. Most importantly, she is making a difference in people’s lives and winding their hearts by proving them with a green planet.
What’s Her Main Motivation
Her passion for plants was instilled in her from childhood. She comes from a family that loves plants, and her elders adored the plants as musicians adore their instruments. It was at the age of 3 that she first encountered how to care for a plant.
Her maternal grandpa gave her some abandoned plants, claiming that they needed to be saved. Reshma understood the worth of a plant’s existence at this age, and she absorbed those teachings as a sponge absorbs water.
Armed with this sacred knowledge that she continued to learn, she has now become a horticulture ninja who wants to bring her garden party to as many people as possible.
She wants people to create a beautiful green corner in their homes, ultimately leading to a healthy, sustainable, and green planet.
If you go through her videos, you will find she teaches gardening techniques and horticulture secrets for using household waste as compost and fertilizer.
She has shared many practical tricks and hacks that help people grow different types of flowers and plants in their gardens, keep them healthy in different climates, and use waste to encourage sustainability.
We live in a time when millions of individuals dream of getting a decent government job. But this green girl from Jharkhand left her high-salary government job, which is remarkable and unheard of.
A quick overview of her site and her YouTube channel reveals that she is not only knowledgeable, but her love for plants is pure. The pricing of the products on her website is not expensive, and she shares her tips, tutorials, and content videos on practical and day-to-day concerns that people encounter while terrace gardening.
When the efforts are honest, success becomes inevitable. The same is true with Reshma’s Parikrii Garden channel, which has over 1 million subscribers and many followers on Instagram & Facebook, while earning handsome money.
