Indoor Plants are back in style …
Did they ever really go out of fashion?
Not for some, but it seems that COVID-19 is being attributed to a resurgence of popularity for the humble houseplant.
Starved of photo-opportunities with friends and family during Lockdown, Millennials across the globe started sharing pics of themselves with their favourite houseplant and the trend shows no sign of slowing down.
Online plant purchases have skyrocketed over the past twelve months, and the many benefits of tending to plants have been recognised and embraced by a whole new generation of gardeners.
If you are a tenants, indoor plants are a fantastic way of enhancing your personal space and create some Insta-worthy pics.
Without wanting to sound like a wet rag, you will need to be mindful of the property as well as your plants when creating your own tropical oasis. Its important to watch that climbing plants are not attaching to walls and damaging paintwork, pots are not staining the flooring and humidifiers are not creating excessive moisture which may lead to mould. Yikes!
In our experience all those plant lovers out there normally take all the necessary precautions and it is rare we have to address any issues around plants. However if you are a recent plant lover convert – look out for the risks!
If you are looking for a little bit of inspiration yourself, you can’t go past Craig Miller-Randle’s Instagram feed @craigmilran). He is a presenter of “The Great Indoors” on ABC TV and the photos he shares of his home in Melbourne are just amazing.
We would love to see your indoor plants! Why not share with us on Insta @rightside.io or Facebook @rightsideagency
