There’s something mesmerising about a perfectly placed houseplant.

Whether they’re trailing from the edge of a shelf, positioned in the corner of a room or lining the edge of a desk, bringing plants into your home is a great way to brighten up any room, especially if you’re living in rented accommodation or live in a small flat.

As a result, more and more of us are taking to our Instagram feeds to find styling inspiration and advice on how to take care of our leafy friends – and that’s where ‘plantfluencers’ come in.
