How do I buy the right houseplant online in 2024?

Choosing the right plant for you can be overwhelming, especially with so many beautiful plants to choose from! Don’t worry, in this blog we will share our tips to choose the best plant from a webshop!

Plant characteristics

Before looking at all the beautiful houseplants that are out there, you should consider a few factors. Houseplants have all kinds of different needs, which need to fit in your skill set and the time you want to spend on your new houseplant. We can imagine that you don’t always have all the time of the world to provide for your plant, that is you should consider the following aspects:


Where will you be placing your new green friend? Is that place provided with lots of light, or is it a bit of a darker corner in your house? Most plants will thrive in bright indirect light, so if you have to offer, on that aspect there is lots of choice. If you have a darker corner to brighten up with a plant, your choice is a little bit more limited. You might want to look into shadow plants. No plant can survive without any light, but shadow plants can tolerate low light conditions very well.

Care requirement

Are you a super experienced PLNTSparent with green thumbs, or are you still learning how to put those green thumbs to work? As an experienced PLNTSparents you don’t have any difficulty with caring for different types of needs, so the choice is actually almost endless. If you are less experienced you might want to go for an easy going plant that is pretty forgiving when you forget to water it once in a while. You might want to look into easy houseplant, which include Philodendron Micans Lime, Dischidia ovata or the Monkey Mask (Monstera Adansonii). Of course there are many other houseplant, but keep in mind that they have to be able to grow within the light condition that you have to offer, like we just spoken of.


Also pretty important, how much would you like to spend on houseplants? You have houseplants in all kinds of price ranges, you can buy a cheap houseplant or a very rare houseplant. It doesn’t matter what your budget is, we promise that there are more than enough fun options to choose from!
