Great differences in fish food, aquatic plant, fish prices

It appears that there is a very great difference in fish food prices all over India. Offline in Panaji, Goa, they are charging Rs 80 for a packet of fish food, while online, the same packet is being sold for Rs 20. Some plants are sold for Rs 100 each in Goa, while online and in Mumbai they are selling for Rs 20 – Rs 30 each at one store. In Mumbai in another store in the same locality, aquatic plants were being sold for Rs 130 per plant, indicating the extremely high profit margins.
The major advantage of growing aquatic plants, is that they do not require regular watering, unlike conventional plants, which will dry up if they are not watered properly unless they are succulents like aloe vera, cactus.

Few gardening related magazines in India

There are many people interested in gardening, especially in small towns, where there are limited opportunities for getting a job or any other kind of work. However in India there are very few magazines on gardening available, most of the magazines are clubbing home and garden together. Even in these magazines, there is very little gardening related information, only a few pages. In the articles the gardening writers are only using the latin name of the plants, and in many cases, they are not mentioning the indian name or common name or even a photo of the plant.
The only way an amateur gardener can find out the name of the plant, what it is looking like, is to use search engines or a botanical dictionary. Publishers of gardening related magazines can send their magazine details to info@textads.in
