  • The Monstera was by far the most popular house plant on Instagram with 2,715,731 tagged photos 

  • Super healthy Snake Plants are the fourth most popular houseplant on Instagram

It will come as no surprise to avid plant collectors (or anyone who has been on Instagram in the last year) to learn that the majestic Monstera has come out on top. These iconic plants are known for improving the quality of the air and inducing feelings of calm.

Midway down the table is another famous plant, the Snake Plant. These popular plants can absorb cancer-causing pollutants, including CO2, benzene, formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene.

On the smaller side Peace Lilies and Spider Plants have been brightening up our home offices and keeping our brains active with their air-purifying properties which can help you stay alert and focused.

Chinese Money Plant

The unique-looking Chinese Money Plant has yet to break through into mainstream Insta fame, but this eye-catching green beauty is well known for purifying the air and is also thought to attract wealth and prosperity.

Health and wellbeing experts have predicted that the Chinese Money Plant is set to be the ‘next big thing’ in houseplants, saying:

“The Chinese Money Plant has seen an 83% uplift in google searches since August! Not only is it well known for purifying the air, the fact that it’s so easy to take cuttings from means you can have one in every room! The tradition is to place a coin in the soil with your Chinese money plant, and it’ll spontaneously start to attract wealth.”


We’ll be buying a few - that’s for sure!
