The houseplant hype is here to stay so any plant will do, but we have put together some of the top trends that are sure to get your friends talking and add something special to your houseplant collection. So if you want to stay up-to-date with the latest houseplant styles for 2023, try one or all of the ideas below. 

  1. Small plants

Small plants can make a big impact. They can save space, and many are easy to grow. Think of small terrariums, bonsai trees, and mini plants in cute pots. You'll find so much inspiration online, with many macro shots and social media photos of various ways to build small terrariums in tiny glass bottles. Grouping lots of small plants together can also look stunning. 

  1. Rare plants 

As houseplant collections grow, rare plants are becoming much more desired. The addition of a rare plant to a home can make a big statement about how essential houseplants are to the owner. Monstera deliciosa' Albo-Variegata’ is a particularly coveted houseplant with its big, luscious green leaves and white markings. Philodendron gloriosum is another rare (and costly!) houseplant which looks lovely in a large container and in photos!

  1. Air cleaning plants

Houseplants don't just look pretty; well-being is big on everyone's mind right now, so plants that don't just soften the room's look, but also clean the air of toxins, are one of the top trends. Some of the best plants that clean the air of toxins are, thankfully, some of the easiest to grow! Sansevieria, Spider Plant, and Aloe Vera are all popular plants for good reason, and can be a great choice.

  1. Large plants

Indoor-outdoor living is a big trend as everyone wants to connect better with nature. Many houseplant lovers are going big with their houseplants, and even indoor trees are becoming more popular, or at the very least, houseplants that are so big they look like a tree! Big plants are a big trend at the moment, so if you have the space, why not try one out! From the tall, large-leafed Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia), to the indoor Christmas tree, the Norfolk Island Pine, is more your style, or an elegant ficus

While trends come and go, houseplants overall are always a vital aspect of every home, so whichever you decide to grow, or however you display them, know that a houseplant never really goes out of fashion.
