    The two domain name are not similar. So you can start you business safely.

    In India, the domain name are protected  under the Trade Mark Act, since your domain is not similar and the word flora ,fern are generic can be used by anybody in combination with some unique  prefifix and suffix.

    In order to protect, your domain it is advisable to apply for registration of the same under the Trade marks Act.
