Recently, millennials have been passionate about owning indoor plants, which makes a lot of sense because we haven’t been able to be around nature due to Covid-19 keeping us indoors. So why not bring nature to us? Staying at home has also had a negative impact on the mental health of many millennials, resulting in the rising popularity of indoor plants. This is due to the fact that caring for and surrounding ourselves with plants can be very therapeutic and definitely helps with anxiety. Whether it’s a Cactus, Bamboo, or Alocasia, it’ll surely brighten up your homes and help you reconnect with nature, which is why indoor plants have become so well-liked amidst millennials.
Part of the reason houseplants are trendy to own is that millennials and Gen Z are continuously posting hashtags about their own plants all over social media. The more the trend grows the more small indoor plant businesses start to open up online, which means more people will purchase new plants. Social media also brings people that are interested in plants together and enables them to share their thoughts and ideas with one another. For those that have just begun, or are thinking about starting to collect their very own indoor plants may find this useful, as they can reach out to many experienced plant parents for tips and advice on how to care for their plants and what plants are the most suitable for them.
