The 10 Houseplants That Redditors Can’t Stop Talking About
And with so much activity happening in the community (and so many of us at home these days), it got us thinking: what are the houseplants Redditors can’t stop talking about? With the help of the Reddit team, we gathered the top 10 most-discussed plants by mention so far in 2020, plus related posts that stand as proof of the recent buzz.
We could stare at this curling, rose-like monstera leaf all day — and the others who stumbled upon this photo agree.
The monstera plant has grown in popularity over the years, establishing the reputation as a top Instagrammable plant. Monsteras prefer high humidity and indirect lighting, and you should water the top quarter-to-third if the soil feels dry. While this houseplant isn’t the easiest to take care of, the impressive split leaves are worth the labor alone.
3. Cactus (dino-style)
We like this adorable cactus even more after we found out the “planter” is actually from Target — and was only $5!
Wow, talk about a great roadside find! Glad this big boy found a seemingly good new home (and was able to fit in the back of the Corolla — phew).
A philodendron is another houseplant that’s hard to kill, which might be a reason why it’s so popular. They can thrive in low-light conditions, although they’ve been proven to grow fastest in medium or indirect light. Philodendron can flourish in either soil or just water, and you know it needs water when its leaves start to appear wilted.
Warning: this Calathea timelapse is incredibly fun to watch and may lead to several replays. The movement that occurred under six hours is quite impressive!
There are hundreds of types of hoya plants, even an adorable heart-shaped one. They thrive in bright, indirect light and require enough water that keeps its soil moist but not wet. This is another plant that is easy to propagate: all you have to do is take a leaf or two with the stems and pin to a container of damp potting soil.
Maybe we should all paint mantras on our potters, because it looks like it’s working *pray emoji*.
Try to not go “aww” when you see this tiny snake plant sprouting up. We dare you.
10. ZZ (Zamioculcas Zamiifolia)
This houseplant originates from eastern Africa, and it can survive drought and low-light conditions. ZZ plants do best in bright to moderate sunlight that is indirect, and in the case of watering, less is more (the most common way to kill a ZZ plant is overwatering).
