While we’d like to live in the plant-filled oases you see here, that isn’t always the reality now, is it? Whether you unintentionally kill every houseplant that enters your home (guilty) or you’re simply locked to your desk and are suffering from a bit of plantlife wanderlust, these Instagram accounts are here to help… in a major way.
This dreamy shelfie situation is just one of many whimsical displays you’ll find on this San Diego-based plant junkie’s account (think swoon-worthy reading nooks, hanging macrame nests, and cacti-topped surfaces).
Despite its tiny size, Danae and Bill Horst’s charming Pasadena, CA shop has plenty of botanical eye candy to go around. With chic, plant-friendly goods—like metallic misters, ceramic air plant cradles, and seagrass baskets—also on the scene, their feed is a lesson in caring for your leafy greens in style.
It’s okay if your friends don’t get your foliage obsession: This ever-growing community of fellow plant fiends will. A digital hub for exclusively green spaces and places, this not-so-ordinary club is one you’ll want to join ASAP.
We’re kind of big fans of this local NYC plant shop. For starters, they’re experts on plants (and taught us how to keep our fiddle leaf figs and our monsteras alive) and their Instagram feed is awe-inspiring. Seriously.
Don’t let their handle fool you. Solabee Flowers, based in Portland, Oregon, deals with both florals and botanicals… because why limit yourself to just one type of plant life?
With six shops spread throughout Japan and one NYC outpost, it’s clear plant artist Satoshi Kawamoto knows what he’s doing. Follow along with his stateside location, which also sells vintage and consignment clothing and accessories, for all the inspiration.
Darryl Cheng recently copped up to owning 15 snake plants, which means he knows (and loves) green. Be sure to follow if you’re interested in the scientific classifications of plants, not just their nicknames.
Seeking a regular reminder that plants (both close up and far away) are beautiful? Look no further. Tula House, a plant shop with a showroom in Brooklyn and a traveling truck/mobile greenhouse dubbed “Tulita”, has you covered.
