Our Story

Growing TickleMe Plants from seeds was then and still is a magical experience for us. Throughout our lives, we continued to grow our own TickleMe Plants. I became a science teacher and over my 30 years of teaching have had many budding scientists experience the joy of raising their own TickleMe Plants.

Larry and I decided to form the TickleMe Plant Company, so that we could make the TickleMe Plant experience available to all people young and old. Many children (and adults) have never been exposed to the joy and importance of plants. Watching a plant grow and move can be an unforgettable experience. We don’t want children and those young at heart, to lose “touch” with our living world. What better adventure than to raise their own TickleMe Plant from seed? A great experience for everyone! Growing a TickleMe Plant/ Zombie Plant is the perfect gift for someone who wants to share their love of nature and gardening!

In addition, we donate 1% of all profits after taxes to The Nature Conservancy’s program, ‘Adopt an Acre’®, to save the rainforest. Click here to Adopt an Acre®

Like your adoption and care of your delicate pet TickleMe Plant, we will help care for our planet by helping to preserve its rain forest habitat. This will help allow all plants and animals that depend on this important ecosystem to have a better chance of survival.

We would like to thank all of our family for their time, patience, love and support in the formation of the TickleMe Plant Company, Inc. We couldn’t do this without them.
Happy Growing,
Mark and Larry Chipkin
