Looking to add more plants to your urban jungle? Before you go to your usual faves, take note of these emerging plant trends you'll want to add to the collection.
It's never been more trendy to incorporate plants into your home decor and with such beautiful options out there, your dream of turning your humble abode into a jungle oasis has never been easier. But before you get starting on your #planttherapy goals, take note of these surprising indoor plant trends.
POPS OF COLOUR
While we love a bit (or a lot) of greenery, expect to see plants with a bit of colour branching their way into many homes this year. Our favourite? This oyster plant (Tradescantia spathacea variegata), which pays tribute to the millennial pink colour trend.
PATTERNED & VIBRANT FOLIAGE
Pinterest knows best and according to their trend report for 2018, patterned plants are going to be huge this year, with saves for patterned plants up over 500 percent. A rattlesnake plant (Calathea lancifolia) is a gorgeous option that will add a tropical feel to any space—and it's non-toxic to both dogs and cats.
If you're a notorious plant-killer (guilty), then underwater plants may be the best alternative and super trendy option for 2018. Make your own DIY indoor water plant using a sword plant, a popular freshwater aquarium plant known for its lush green leaves and strong roots.
DWARF FRUIT TREES
Want to be able to pick a fresh lemon from the comforts of your living room? You can have that luxury with citrus trees like the Meyer lemon tree. Enjoy their beautiful greenery all summer long and expect them to bloom in the winter, a lovely treat for those cold, gloomy days when you need a bright pick-me-up.
