Love Plants? Here are 9 of the Best Places to Buy Houseplants Online
Fresh plants delivered straight to your door!
Houseplants are an easy way to spruce up your home – and ordering them online from reputable companies means life just got a whole lot easier! Check out the best online places to score healthy, live houseplants delivered right to your doorstep!
Hip Tips: There are a couple of things I’d recommend before ordering your plants:
Be prepared: Unless otherwise specified, many companies ship plants in nursery containers (like you’ll find at gardening centers), so be prepared to replant them with fresh soil and a well-draining planter once they arrive.
Research them: Consider the plants you’re buying and the amount (and type) of care they’ll require. Some plants need windows with certain directional light, some need more (or less) water, and yet others follow a specified fertilizer regimen.
Take care: Since online houseplants may not arrive with care instructions, you can mark a popsicle stick with when to fertilize, how often to water, how much light they need, etc. Then just stick it in the soil!
