    Dress Up Your Indoor Garden!

    Blame it on social media—Pinterest and Instagram to be specific—but plants are suddenly the trendiest necessity in home decor. We’ve always known they have the ability to brighten and cheer up any room (and they have health benefits, too) but now we want plants as much for how they look as for how many likes they might inspire.

    Consider the fiddle leaf fig, for example. An adult tree can cost you more than $300, and they’re the star of editorial home features in Domino, Architectural Digest and more. If you have the patience and the perseverance to care for one, you can pick up a young fiddle leaf from Home Depot for about $35.

    Millennials especially are driving the popularity of photo-worthy houseplants, and unsurprisingly, their favorites are greenery that’s fairly “low maintenance.” Plants like succulents and palms that don’t need tons of water and can survive in low light are the most sought-after. And rather than just set their plants on the table—design-savvy people of all ages are putting plants… Everywhere! Hanging planters (so 70s) are back, and many brands have an array of planters meant to be mounted to the wall and/or displayed in clusters.

    Whether you’re looking for a series of succulents to line your little windowsill or a basket that can hold a full-grown Ficus tree, we found stylish planters that will allow your favorite florals, trees, palms and plants to add some serious design cred to indoor garden.
