7 Trendy Indoor Plants to Bring Home ASAP
Picking indoor plants is a highly personal, objective decision. As with anything, you want only the best indoor plants, but factors such as maintenance levels, safety for pets, and light requirements determine whether a plant—regardless of how great or Insta-famous it is—is right for you. Some will want to stick to classic plants, or plants that can help clean and filter indoor air; others will want to keep up with the Next Big Thing(s) of the plant world. For the latter group, this year’s best trending indoor plants have atypical looks—and even some unexpected culinary benefits.
Indoor plants make for pretty, living décor options that grow and change, but they can also serve so many other purposes—and the latest batch of trending plants take functional to a whole new level. Some are just interesting to look at, with playful silhouettes and unexpected shapes, but others can offer a little help in the kitchen or help improve the smell of a room.
Buying a new plant doesn’t mean the old ones have to go. Indoor plants can thrive together or separately, and too many plants isn’t a bad thing, as long as there’s plenty of space and light to go around. Adding a new plant, large or small, to the mix can help shake up the look of the room, especially when it’s paired with a pretty plant stand or other accessory. And no feeling is quite like that of getting ahold of a new plant before it shows up all over Instagram and Pinterest.
Get ahead of the indoor plant curve with one of these expert-approved picks, which are sure to be sprouting and blooming all over the place by the end of the year. Order one of these trending best indoor plants online or seek them out at your local garden center; wherever you get it, once you bring that plant home, you’ll feel like it was exactly what your plant-scape was missing.
