#ExoticTropicals: Cynthia considers a Phalaenopsis orchid for her home, surrounded by an oasis of options including Variegated Dracaena, Sansevieria, Splitleaf Philodendron.
Today’s savvy 20-somethings solve that dilemma at North Haven Gardens, which makes indoor plant care the hot new thing.
Filling apartments with succulents and low-maintenance plant collections in vintage containers is no passing fad; plant care provides physical and mental benefits in addition to beautifying one’s residence.
“Over the last couple of years, mid-century genera such as fiddle leaf fig, dragon tree and the elusive variegated monstera have seen a resurgence in popularity,” says Cynthia Koogler, owner of neighborhood Flower Child Plants and caretaker of North Haven Gardens’ ornamental beds.
