I never thought I’d be into gardening and planting and here I am as an adult following in my parents’ footsteps. If going to a garden nursery or some place like Home Depot is hard to get to, I have a solution! Did you know you can buy plants on Amazon?! There’s an Amazon Plant Store section. I know, they basically sell anything and everything haha.
Overall, I find having plants in your home and garden to be very therapeutic. I look forward to watering my plants every morning and maintaining them i.e. deadheading, pruning, trimming. It’s such a calming process. Plus, they are very aesthetically pleasing and it’s refreshing to have some greenery in and around your home.
More recently I’ve been dabbling with the idea of adding indoor plants to our home. Most of our plants are outdoors, and I’ve heard so many benefits of indoor plants. For instance, indoor plants are great air purifiers. They help maintain the fresh air, reduce carbon dioxide levels, reduce certain pollutants, and keep the air temperature down.
Today’s post is all about cute plants on Amazon. I shared a mixture of indoor plants and outdoor plants. A lot of the outdoor plants I am recommending are the ones currently in my garden. And by garden, I mean a little urban garden on my balcony haha. If this is your first time working with plants, I highly recommend you check out my post on garden tool essentials. It has everything you need to plant and care for your plants.

How Plants are Shipped From Amazon
I’m sure it is weird to think about plants being shipped to your home versus going out to buy them. However, most of them are part of Amazon prime and they will get it out to you and hopefully arrive to your doorstep in two days. Which is great for people who don’t have a car! I know living in the city I don’t drive (eek it has been 8 years-ish since I drove a car) and sometimes my husband is not around to drive. Whenever I buy plants, I love to buy multiple of them, so walking or public transportation is a pain.
Most of the sellers on the Amazon plant shop are reputable sellers. They ensure that your plant is packaged well. They’re normally shipped in a box and some other packaging items to protect them. I highly recommend watering your plant as soon as you get it. You want to make sure they are well hydrated and expose them to sunlight (if your plant requires sunlight).
And remember, here are the benefits of gardening and having plants in your home.
It’s great for the mind and soul. Something about the extra greenery and vibrancy of the blooms puts the mind at ease. I know each morning when I go water our outdoor plants and do some light maintenance, I find it to be very calming.
Great For the Health
A lot of plants are air purifiers. They help circulate oxygen, provide clean air to breathe, and fight off pollutants.
They add curb appeal to the exterior of your home, add some charm to your outdoor space, and vibrancy indoors and outdoors. The splash of greenery really makes a difference.
There are studies that show that plants can help increase your mood. Which makes sense because every time I’m by some plants and flowers I just feel better.
They help reduce stress, fatigue, and increase concentration. Now it makes sense why my old co-worker always had an indoor plant in the office. Since we are all working from home due to coronavirus, hopefully this helps us with our productivity!
So what about you? Are you into having plants in and around your home? Have you started gardening? I’d love to hear your thoughts and if you have a favorite plant, please share! Also, if you have any recommendations for any cut-flowers that are great in a pot that would be awesome. Unfortunately, living in a city we don’t get that much green space. So Tre and I rely on potting our outdoor plants.
