There are two types of people; those who prefer flowers and those who lean towards long-lasting green plants. However, liking something for its appeal is one thing, and deciding to care for one is a totally different story. Choosing to get a plant (or more) is just like adopting a puppy or having a baby; it’s a responsibility, and it’s definitely not just watering.

For those wanting to use up their tedious quarantine hours learning about the hobby they’ve been putting on hold, read on. We did some digging on Instagram and got you some accounts that will not just bring greenspiration to your feed but will also educate you, and give you everything you need to know.

One of our absolute favourite accounts is hands down Plant Cult.

Not to mention that Plant Cult also sells those babies; it has everything from bonsais to cacti, all packaged in minimalistic, high-quality pots.
