Instagram is a black hole of lovely things—from travel photos and posh OOTDs, to mouthwatering food shots and captivating vignettes. Aside from these things that make us double tap, plant photos are also top contenders for having the most number of likes. Who wouldn’t be stopped by these refreshing snaps, anyway? Many homeowners have mastered the skill of using these potted wonders as part of their décor and a number of stores offering various plants and planters have gained a strong following online, too. Since we’re always on the lookout for shops that can help you achieve your best home yet, you may want to give Happy Plant a follow. Trust us, you’ll fall in love with this indoor plant expert as well.


From plant vignettes to stunning green picks, Happy Plant’s feed is brimming with inspiration, ideas, and of course—plants that you’ll love to add to your space. Would you believe that this tiny green endeavor began only last May? “It all began with the pursuit of reviving our garden at home. It was always groomed and landscaped when we were younger, until a few years ago. Our family just didn’t have the time to have it maintained anymore. Seeing the top soil erosion, dirt, and the plants struggling to survive made me sad. I decided to try my hand at landscaping our garden. I would do sections over the weekend, until it started to come together. Getting your hands dirty, touching the plants and the soil are the only ways to do it. It took a lot of time and patience,” recalls Stephanie Dan, the young lady behind Happy Plant.


After seeing how her own space bloomed, Stephanie made it her mission to spread the word about the benefits of indoor plants and how it can improve not just a space, but one’s overall well-being as well. The passionate plant lady shares that plants don’t just have air purifying properties; there are plants that can boost our health, help improve our mood, and even aid in our healing. If you need help concentrating or getting some work done, the right set of greens can come to the rescue. "Two Norwegian studies found that workers’ productivity, creativity, and quality of work are greatly enhanced by the presence of plants,” shares Stephanie. No wonder we can see a potted plant almost everywhere—from malls and clinics, to schools and even tiny houses.

RL Tip: Most indoor plants can thrive in low light. Don’t be afraid to ask the experts for tips on how to best care for your potted wonder. Ask about the best watering technique and when to place each under direct sunlight. Plant care involves doing research, a lot of patience, and tender loving care.
