Irresistible Baby Houseplants That Will Change Your Life

January 30, 2019

Baby photos are irresistible. And no less so when the babies are houseplants. Netherlands-based online shop Baby Plants delivers (by stork?) throughout the European Union.

Warning: If you are one of those people who can’t visit a litter of puppies without bringing one home, you probably should not look at the shop’s photo of an itty bitty fiddle-leaf fig tree because the tropical plant is temporarily sold out. (We put the baby fiddle-leaf fig tree way down at the bottom of the post so you can avoid the heartbreak of seeing how adorable it is.)
