Rachana Upadhyay popular as "Patlu Ka Garden" on social media platform has planted over 1000 plants in her garden in Delhi. Here is her inspiring story.
Rachana from Uttarakhand developed a love for plants & gardening, influenced by her mother, grandfather & uncle who worked in the horticulture department.
Rachana who was inspired by her mother started her journey by planting Echeveria plant and expanded her collection, ultimately growing over 100 fruit-bearing plants.
In 2020, Rachna's mother passed away suddenly. She felt solace and peace in being around plants. Spending time in the garden reminded her of her mother.
She wakes up early in the morning, goes for a walk in her garden, takes care of watering plants precisely and focuses on misting humidity loving houseplants daily.
She also practices early morning yoga in her garden for stress relief and inner piece. By practicing yoga she feels united with her plants.
Rachana's favourite plants include the air-purifying Areca Palm, Aglaonema, Snake Plant, and adaptable ZZ Plant for low-light conditions.
Rachana urges everyone to create a small green corner, fostering harmony with nature and offering a stress-free heaven to feel within.
