2020 House Plant Trends

House Plants have been growing in popularity in the last few years. With terms like “plant parent” or “crazy plant lady” making the rounds on Social Media, it’s becoming clear that House Plants is a hot trend for 2020.

Colorful Foliage

Adding pops of color in decor is nothing new, but the popularity of House Plants has put a spin on everyday decorating. Using plants with colorful foliage, interesting leaf patterns or striking variegation is a great way to add color and texture to your home while taking advantage of the health benefits of house plants.

Croton foliage

Plants like Crotons, Chinese Evergreens, and Calathea are gaining popularity because of their interesting colors and leaf patterns.

The Strange and Unusual

Coveting the unique and different is a top trend for plant parents. Social Media is full of rare and unusual houseplants that are must-haves to plant owners everywhere. Plants like the Raven ZZ, Whale’s Fin Sansevieria, and Variegated Monstera are showing up on the internet as some of the most sought after, yet hard-to-find house plants of 2020.

Variegated Monstera

Most of these plants are propagated from clippings and take years to grow, making them a rare find indeed. Very few growers have these plants available, making them even harder to get into retail stores.

Houseplants as Decor and Home Aesthetics

Forget the bookshelves, wall paintings, and knick-knacks, think plants instead. Adding accent plants to shelves, cabinets and corners or using plants as the focal point in your living spaces is gaining in popularity. Showing off a prized plant,  or your entire collection has been a trend for plant lovers in the last few years. Having entire shelves, and even rooms dedicated to plant babies is becoming more and more common. Pairing plants with unique hangers and plant stands or tables is a great way to enhance your home’s decor while showing off your plants.

Plant Communities

Cultivating house plants has become a social activity over the last few years. Plant parents are creating care groups and entire events centered around house plants. Apps like Grow It and Garden Tags are designed for people to share their love of plants with each and provide care tips.

Caring for Something

Unlike past generations, Millenials are waiting longer to live on their own and are choosing to rent over homeownership. In turn, they are waiting longer to start families, but are still looking to fill the need for caregiving. Many are turning to plants.

Plant Care

From urban living couples to young singles, to empty nesters, caring for plants gives a feeling of accomplishment without the work or commitment of a pet. Watching your plant sprout a new stem, reviving it when it isn’t doing well, or treating ailments make for proud plant parents no matter the age. Mix that with their array of health benefits, and it’s easy to see why House Plants are hot this year.
