No matter what your gardening skill, there truly is a houseplant for everyone.

Whether you’re a fan of the humble Swiss Cheese Plant or prefer the likes of a Boston Fern, a houseplant can spruce up any living space. And they’re not just visually delightful: houseplants could even help us to battle the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder and boost our wellbeing.

Just scroll through the hashtags #plantsofinstagram or #houseplants and you’ll see what we’re talking about: thanks to their visually appealing nature, houseplants have found their home on the social media platform.
