Why are we seeing such a growing demand for indoor plants?
Well, these beauties are easy to look after and can transform any home or living space with ease.
Indoor plants are proven to make the room and the people living there, healthier and happier. The demand for more greenery in homes is driven in part by social media. There we see luscious green leaves and fantastic ferns attracting millennials and social media influencers, from far and wide.
Perhaps what’s so appealing about indoor plants is they are sturdy and don’t need much care to grow and blossom. Succulents, cacti and other indoor plants don’t require an abundance of water, sunlight or fertiliser to survive. Letting them thrive on their own, uninterrupted seems to be the best method for growth. This makes them the perfect plant for any busy-bee or contemporary family.
Another reason why the demand for indoor plants is increasing, is urbanisation. With 54 per cent of the world’s population now living in urban areas, there is less space for vegetation though a strong desire for flowers and shrubbery remains. People are saying goodbye to backyards and are welcoming indoor greenery.
If you don’t have a backyard or if you are looking to invigorate the style in your living spaces – try adding a vertical garden. Vertical gardens are the latest and greatest trend. These gardens allow for ample living space, only needing a blank wall or bare fence. Any vertical space that needs beautifying can successfully grow a range of edibles, annuals, even perennials with the care and expertise provided by Vertical Gardens Australia.
