10 Houseplant Lovers to Follow on Instagram

March 19, 2018

Instagram offers a rich vein of inspiration for houseplant lovers, from fellow enthusiasts around the world. Here are my top 10 houseplant accounts to follow, from Cairo to Canada.

Warsaw, Poland

 Beata and Remek live in a teeny tiny apartment but they don&#8\2\17;t let this stop them building an extensive houseplant collection.

They also photograph other houseplant lovers in their city.

Look out for… they’ve even created a Spotify playlist for their plants.

Cairo, Egypt

  Still life, with prayer plant.

Veterinarian Mohamed Osman’s life changed a year ago when he suffered from a heart attack aged 35: During his recuperation he began filling his home with plants, and he hasn’t looked back since. Now every conceivable surface of his home is filled with greenery, including Calatheas, Marantas, Monsteras, and Pothos.

Look out for… his mighty Monstera deliciosa.

Helsinki, Finland

 Minimalism is definitely not the vibe of this plant-packed account, which will make you wonder why you stopped at only a few dozen plants.

When you first get a glimpse of this account, you won’t know what to lust after first. Check out her incredible cactus planter made out of a vintage television set and her enormous spider plant.

Look out for… the cactus-covered dining table.

Montreal, Canada

@jrlefrancois

Jonathan Lefrançois has a cat named Grysou so he tries to position his plants out of reach of paws with some creative hanging methods.

Oh, and he has a ridiculously large but wonderful watering can. Lefrançois has a great eye for displaying greenery, so it’s no surprise that in his day job he’s in the visual arts, working as a graphic designer (@pulpandpixel).

Look out for… his stunning if weird-looking Euphorbia lactea ‘Cristata’.

Colchester, United Kingdom

@tribeandus

 Kate and Craig&#8\2\17;s collection of cacti and succulents is awe-inspiring, and handily enough as photographers they are pretty efficient at producing the most gorgeous shots of them too. It helps that their children, Marcie, Bodhi, and Rowe, are utterly adorable.

Look out for… some stunning specimens of the trailing succulent Hoya linearis.

Bogotá, Colombia

Jan from the Czech Republic has lots of great ideas for plant display: Check out his grid against the wall for a space-saving arrangement.

He doesn’t take himself too seriously, though.

Look out for … his large and lush watermelon Peperomia.

Christchurch, New Zealand

@vivvie_the_gardener

Above: Vivvie grew up in the UK and spent eight years traveling the world performing in a classical jazz ballet before moving to New Zealand.

She’s got a thing for basketry, so lots of her containers are made from the stuff.

Look out for… the awesome, huge bird’s nest fern in her bathroom.

Depok, Indonesia

@yovanika49

Despite the language barrier, this account speaks eloquently through pictures alone, showing off a stunning collection of plants in rude health, particularly Episcias and and Coleus.

The Instagram image of a hand holding a beautiful houseplant against a wall is a common trope, but this account does it well through a combination of rare and unusual specimens and good photography.

Aden, a graphic designer, has a gorgeous, photogenic white cat named Tilda.

Look out for… Aden’s Farfugiums. If you haven’t heard of them, you’ll soon want one.

Rotterdam, the Netherlands

&#8\2\20;I love spending time in my laundry room, the plants make it a lovely place to stay,&#8\2\2\1; says Angela Rapisarda.

The first thing that drew me to Angela Rapisarda’s account was not her wonderful plant collection, but the carved wooden door that provides the backdrop to many of her photos. She has a collection of giant Coleus I’d like to steal, and some delectable Begonias.

Look out for… Angela’s Alocasia ‘Red Secret’.
