While exports remain a key motivator for cultivators, the domestic demand for flowers is also increasing exponentially, especially in the metros and larger cities. Modernization and growing western cultural influences have driven consumers to buy flowers on a number of occasions like valentine’s day, marriages, anniversaries, birthdays, friendship day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day etc. Large scale consumption of flowers is also carried out throughout the country during religious festivals.
