A house truly isn’t a home without some greenery sprinkled here and there. Houseplants completely liven up a space by bringing a touch of the great outdoors into the cozy indoors. Plants also have the ability to emphasize your interior tastes, no matter the decor style. Boho and eclectic homes can amp up the eclectic vibe with fern fronds, minimalist spaces can benefit from a snake plant or rubber tree to enliven a corner, and southwestern houses and desert dwellers can use cacti to carry out the feeling of their surroundings indoors.

Below, we’ve rounded up the 15 best houseplant Instagrams. From succulents to shrubs, these accounts know how to style their homes with the best plants. Whether you aspire to have a mini jungle in your space or are just looking for one or two leafy friends, you'll gain plenty of inspiration.
