In the last few years, a growing number of #plantparents have found that cultivating plants has helped them remain happier, healthier and more socially connected through online and in-person plant loving communities. If you’re interested in beginning or expanding your own plant therapy practice, here are some must-have plants and gardening trends for the year ahead.
Blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor gardens, potted trees are a beautiful way to incorporate biophilic design in both residential and commercial spaces. These larger-than-life green companions bring a touch of nature indoors. Numerous benefits make them an appealing choice for both seasoned plant lovers and beginners alike.
One of the key advantages of potted trees is their ability to transform any living space into a lush oasis. Their tall stature and leafy foliage create a sense of height and depth, adding visual interest to any room. Moreover, these green giants act as natural air purifiers, filtering out toxins and releasing fresh oxygen into the air, thereby improving indoor air quality. In open concept interiors, potted trees help separate and define spaces without blocking the view completely.
Caring for potted trees may seem daunting at first, but with the right knowledge and attention to their needs, they can be surprisingly low maintenance.
When it comes to choosing the most popular potted trees for your home in 2024, options abound. Mediterranean perennials such as olive, fig and lemon trees are trending, perhaps for the bright and optimistic citrus colors they add to a space.
Mother Nature offers a variety of unexpected leaf shapes and bold color combinations. While traditional greenery remains timeless, these colorful and eye-catching options add a vibrant and artistic touch. To embrace this trend, consider perennial monsteras, philodendron varieties such as the pink princess and the nearly black anthuriums that express a dark and mysterious allure. Begonia searches are seeing worldwide gains in popularity for their dramatic color and pattern options.
The eye immediately draws to these unique shapes, from displayed bonsai terrariums to fascinating cacti to unexpected succulents, where the more pronounced the shape, the better. Look for deeply pronounced grooves, ridges, and whimsical shapes. Different shapes can also be layered together in the same planter for even greater sculptural interest.
From plants with cascading tendrils that mimic flowing waterfalls, to those with leaves that resemble delicate lacework or intricate sculptures, there is an increasing demand for plants that double as living works of art. These captivating shapes not only add visual interest but also create a sense of harmony and balance within our living spaces.
Embrace the idea that, when it comes to plant life, more is more. Research has shown that filling home and commercial spaces with vivid greens will help people feel at ease, reduce stress, and boost their moods. Of course, plants can sit on tables and shelves, but they can also hang from ceilings, climb walls, and generally take over a space in the most beautiful and soothing ways. Forget trends for a moment, and stroll through your local greenhouse to see what speaks to you, keeping in mind your available space and amount of natural light. Like any design trend, being a #plantparent starts with filling your space with things you love.
Make it fun and easy to care for indoor and outdoor greenery, while adding another style element to your spaces by utilizing well-designed planters. The best planters are both decorative and functional, so look for products that combine clever design with sparks of joy.
