Houseplants of all shapes and sizes are having a mainstream moment. We’re spending more time than ever cooped up at home, so it makes sense to bring an element of the outdoors inside.
One quick search for the hashtag #houseplants presents us with a wealth of lush green visuals. From towering palms to striking banana leaf plants, succulents to hanging pots overflowing with English ivy, it doesn’t take long to see why this trend has a special place in the world.
Snake plants, spider plants, aloe vera plants, broadleaf lady palms, and weeping figs not only enhance the decor of your space — they also play a part in helping to purify the air. But if you’re new to plant parenting like us, you already know it requires patience and nurturing.

Some days, your houseplants may need more sunlight than others, so you might find yourself rotating them around your apartment. Then there’s misting the leaves, trimming any dead edges, applying plant fertilizer, and repotting, among other gardener tasks to fulfil.
If that’s all too much, there’s the option to invest in an artificial plant. We find a mix of both works well — especially using artificial hanging vines for above cabinets and out-of-reach areas.
It’s advisable to do some research before investing in real plants, so you know whether they’re low-maintenance or not and if they require a lot of light before you find a place for them in your home.
Now that winter is on the horizon, there’s no better time to add some vitality to your space, whether that involves buying real or convincing artificial houseplants for your living room, bedroom, bathroom, and every other corner of your home.
We’ve rounded up some of the internet’s best to help expedite your plant shopping from the comfort of your sofa.
