What are your #plantgoals this autumn?

New season, great plans, green plants

You don’t have to wait for the New Year to have good resolutions. In fact it's better to spread them across the year. The new season is a good time for some contemplation, and that will produce new plans and goals. So we’re posing the question: what are your #plantgoals for this autumn?

More, more, more greenery

More Greenery is obviously fantastic #plantgoal. An achievable goal that is guaranteed to make you feel better - which are two important criteria for a good resolution. Mix Tillandsias with flowering orchids, buy a hanging plant, an air-purifying plant, or take a look at our houseplant summary for some inspiration. Leaf through a plant book to discover a new favourite, or do the test to find out which plant suits you best in order to achieve your #plantgoal effortlessly.

Green redesign

Your home is already an indoor urban jungle. Great! Time for #plantgoal Green Redesign. Because you bought a plant, then another one and now they’re everywhere. Do something you occasionally do you with your furniture as well - move them around. Group them so that you have calming green zones in your room. Thereby choose pots that complement one another, and play with height a bit. Place plants on a stool, buy a (vintage) plant stand or hang them up. Final tip: put different varieties from one plant family together, such as Calathea.

Healthy plants

When you move your plants around, you do need to check that they’re in a good spot. Most plants do not enjoy being next to a heater or in a draught. Also check that they’re not in a spot that is too light or too dark. And there you are working on #plantgoal Healthy Plants without even realising it. Brown leaves, dry soil or bugs? Prune, feed, fight to help your plant become a  #fitplant. That’s the plant’s good resolution.

Greenery galore

In the bathroom, in the office or in the kitchen: plants bring life to spaces. Greenery Galore is therefore an essential #plantgoal for this autumn. 

A plant for everyone

The #plantgoal A Plant For Everyone will make your friends and family happy and the world a bit greener. Give a plant as a gift for all birthdays, parties and dinners this autumn. A missionary plant - also known as the pancake plant - for someone with a sweet tooth, a big ficus for a big new house, and a cactus for a casual plant lover (or someone who’s a bit prickly). Autumn has never been so green.
