Transplanting Flowers or Plants Are Good for the Environment

Transplanting Flowers or Plants Are Good for the Environment
Florida was discovered by an explorer named Ponce de Leon, who named the state Florida, which is the Spanish word for flowers because, upon his arrival in this new land, he saw nothing but gorgeous flowers everywhere. Surely one of the flowers Señor de Leon must have seen was the hibiscus, a common … everyday … ordinary flower that grew in the front yard of my childhood home.

When I moved from Florida to Texas, shortly after my arrival, I was in a store shopping for items for my new home. There was a woman speaking to another lady and she was speaking loudly and clearly. One couldn't help but overhear the conversation. She had just returned home from vacationing in Florida and was so excited because she had found this wonderful flower! She said she just had to bring this gorgeous flower back and plant it her garden.

Being from Florida, my curiosity was peaked. What Florida flower could she possibly so impressed with? Turns out, it was the humble common ordinary everyday garden variety hibiscus!

Florida flowers grown in Texas gardens. Hmmm?

  • AGREE. Transplanting flowers or plants is good for our environment.

  • DISAGREE. Transplanting flowers or plants disrupts the orderliness of our ecosystem.

Agree - its extremely beneficial

As this is something that I've been doing for decades - I totally agree that - transplanting as well as - choosing plants that are native/suited to the growing conditions, the environment and the climate in which they are going to live - is extremely beneficial to the environment.

Particularly as - not only do they help reduce atmospheric pollution, soil erosion and conserve water - but they’re especially beneficial for the wildlife - as apart from providing them with food and moisture - they provide shelter from the elements and predators too.

I'm not very good at gardening. But I rather fancy the idea of bringing something from another part of the planet and sharing it with those who didn't get a chance to see that part of the world.

Of course

Flowers and plants bring many benefits for the soil and much more for the air quality. So yes it is extremely beneficial. Also the can make the look pretty and this is always nice

That's for sure.

This is extremely useful for the planet and for all living beings that live and depend of it. But I think that proper research should be done so that the measures are not taken in the wrong way... Because otherwise, the work will be useless.

Agree. It's been a hile but I remember seeing a TV documentary where people were trying to change the flow of water to reach another area. The process seemed simple enough. But when they changed the water flow, they screwed up everything! They have never been able to fix it either. When mankind messes up the environment it can be catastrophic to humans and animals and every form of life!!

I'm agree

I think it's a great idea transplanting every kind of plants, mostly if those are fruit plants, my opinion. But, we have to do some researches about the plant we want to have in our home before planting it, because, some plants need a specific environment to grow and we have to offer that environment if we want to have them in our garden or home. Also, some plants could change the natural order of the ecosystems because they could attract animals or bugs that could cause a bad impact on the environment or, in the other hand, those plants could repel some animals that could be vital for the ecosystem.

Since moving here to Texas I am finding out that many people are transplanting flowers, plants, and trees. I even learned that the pomegranate tree can grow well in this state.


No one has disagreed yet, be the first!


I think it is a good idea, but not everything grows everywhere. You need to make sure that the plants and flowers you are planting are suitable to grow in the type of environment you are providing. I think any time flowers or trees are cut down, replacing them with more is the ecologically sound and environmentally responsible thing to do. It doesn't hurt at all!

My father-in-law used to live in the US while we are here in the Philippines. This is a tropical country and my father-in-law would always bring back to the US some seeds and other planting materials. But with the many seeds that he brought, only the citrus plant grew and bore fruits. It is a kind of lemon that is native to tropical countries. The sugar apple and the small star fruit did not fertilize at all.

I have some flowers and vegetables in my garden which I have brought from other areas. I really love to see those flowers blooming in summer. Unfortunately some of the plants that I brought also withered and I think this has to do with the climate. I don't think that transplanting flowers or plants is actually bad for our ecosystem.

I totally agree with you, I don't think it will mess up the ecosystem at all because it is something too small to cause a lot of trouble. The only thing that might happen, like you said, is the climate that will probably ruin flowers that are not in their natural habitat.

It an awesome idea, flowers naturally beautified an environment, sends out the nice smell and can make an environment breezy or airy.So transplanting the flowers one loves to a new location is a good idea.The only problem one can have is if there will be space just like where he or she is coming from and the texture of the soil in the new environment if it will be good enough for the flowers.

Plants are good for our envirotment because they make our environment beautiful and they are also used in making perfumes to give a good smell.

I have a flower garden in front of my house. In my flower garden, I have hibiscus, rose, dahlia, marigold and many species of flowers. I have a vegetable garden in the back yard. In my vegetable garden I have cabbage, cauliflower, brocoli, tomaties, beans, various gourds and melons and many other vegetables. I also have fruot bearing trees such as mango, guava, pomigranate, lychee etc. in my garden. I am surrounded with plants.

Flowers and plants are welcome anywhere in my opinion. I think the world would be much better and more beautiful if people grew more plants. We would have a better air to breathe and live in a more balanced world.

I agree in transplanting as long as you have the same climate or weather condition where the plant came from, you can easily propagate it. Hibiscus thrive in tropical countries that is why we have hibiscus in my country which is the same as Florida.

We are not fanciers of flowers but we prefer fruit trees and other edibles like garlic, ginger and lemon grass. We have soft plastic pots that we use for transplanting. When the plant is ready, we transplant it in the plastic pots. We give those plants to those interested. It is called propagation and that’s our advocacy – to propagate the good plants and trees that we have.

I live in a farm. I farm cereal, vegetables, and fruits. I also have a flower garden, however, I don't spend a lot of time in my flower garden. I think having a few okra plants is better than growing rose. Rose is a beautiful plant, however, I eat okra. I give more importance in planing food, rather than growing flowers.

Well, I think it's alright to transplant flowers or any plants. And actually the orchids in the Philippines was already transplants to another countries. They export the flowers and planted it to their countries, and aside from that, they making a new flowers or orchid by combining the two different pollen and they called it hybrid flowers.
