Trend Alert: Indoor Plants

­­­­­­We’ve been swooning over the indoor plant trend. From hanging planters and terrariums to baskets and oversized pots, we can’t get enough! Whether you’re ready to jump all in with a full plant wall or you just want a great accent plant, there’s a way for everyone to take part in the green goodness.

Having a variety of vessels for plants in store is a great way to provide your customers the opportunity to embrace this trend. Pick a few coordinating pots, planters, baskets, or terrariums that can live together in your display and you’ll help your customers envision them together. Having multiple materials, sizes, and colors is a great way for people to personalize their home.

There’s no debate about the benefits of indoor plants – They purify the air, reduce stress, increase focus, and can improve overall health! But what if you don’t quite have a green thumb? What if your store/home doesn’t have great natural light? What if you just don’t want to look after live plants? Don’t worry! You can still achieve the look you want with faux and preserved botanicals! This season, we have introduced a wide variety of stems, trees, and florals to choose from! They look and feel extremely real, some of you were even deceived in the showroom!

How have you brought this trend into your stores and homes? We’d love to see! Tag us with the hashtag #creativelyyours to show off your indoor greenery!

Inspired Spring Décor and Tips

Indoor plants are proven to not only improve air quality, but also help reduce stress, improve health, sharpen focus, and create an overall feeling of well-being. We think those benefits are too good to pass up, which is why you can find homes for plants in nearly all of our collections with enough style variety to match any décor!

Decorative trays may not be the first item you think of when it comes to indoor plants, but they can be perfect to mix things up from a standard pot or cachepot. Choose a ceramic, terra-cotta, or metal tray, filled with sand and rocks to make a shallow succulent garden or use a tray to hold a few different coordinating or matching pots to keep all of your plants together.

Looking for a clean, modern plant display? Terrariums are a chic way to display air plants, moss, or African violets.

A pot or planter is your plant’s best accessory! Having a variety of options for the littlest of plants to homes for large indoor plants is great for ensuring that anyone who visits your store can find a pot that suits their space. Sets of pots with varying sizes can be broken up to sell individually, but also look great in the home all living together.

Speaking of displays, how do you display items like these? Tiered shelves, carts, and tables are fantastic pieces for displaying pots and planters! If you have a green thumb, add a few of your favorite plants to reap the benefits of indoor plants in your store or add a few faux plants for an approach that requires less maintenance

Take It Inside: Fall and Winter Gardening

 

You may miss the sun’s warmth on your face when Fall’s cool weather arrives, but there’s no reason you’ve got to put your gardening gloves away as the seasons change. Put your hands to use and take your gardening activities indoors.

Have you tried your hand at forcing bulbs? An easy process, winter and spring flowering bulbs like amaryllis, paperwhite narcissus, and hyacinths can brighten living spaces when the view outdoors is dreary and brown.

Shallow pots work very well, but pots of varying depths can be used; you’ll simply need a little more filler. Add enough pebbles or gravel to hold the bulbs in place. (If it’s a deeper pot, you can even fill it in with bubble wrap and then place your stones on top!) You don’t want to cover them, but do load up your vessel with bulbs – think about the payoff of a myriad of blooms!

Once your bulbs are in place, add enough water to reach the base of the bulbs, just shy of touching them. Put your planter in a sunny spot, and watch how quickly roots will take – that will usually happen in just a day or two. In another month’s time, you’ll have gorgeous blooms bursting forth!

 

 

 

If you’re lucky enough to live in a warm climate where tropicals thrive, but need to bring your plants inside once the temperature dips, you can show off larger specimens in statement planters. And we’ve got some great ones! These vessels look as great with twigs and branches in them as they do with live plants.

And don’t forget some other basic necessities if you’re going to keep the dirt off you and off your floors, and things that help keep your planting area organized.
