PocketPlants, a shopping find at the Ex

The traditional end of summer routine has started, The Exhibition. I've spent more time at the CNE as an adult than a child and one thing I do love is the shopping. I usually only visit the food building and the marketplaces.

Of the numerous items to choose from, PocketPlants are definitely something to see. I first discovered them during a post Boxing day shopping trip at Rolo in Yorkville. Tiny plants in a plastic display. I buy a Pink Jade immediately. I'm completely fascinated by this product. This is perfect for people who usually can't take care of a plant or don't live in a place where larger plants thrive.

PocketPlants were created by Ryerson student, Jason Trinh. In his third year of school he felt it was time to test his hand at entrepreneurship. After exploring a few different avenues, he focused on developing a product in the "unique plant gift-ware" niche. They are real plants inside a 1.5 inch capsule that can be used to accessorize mobile phones, purses, knapsacks and anything you can think of. Varieties of oriental orchids, cacti, and succulents are available.

PocketPlants are available during the CNE at Booth #1715, Direct Energy Centre in the Home Pavilion.
