We’ve been longtime fans of this Portland-based plant emporium, and we recommend their online plant selection for those who don’t live within reach of the Pistils Nursery brick and mortar experience. Shop for standard houseplants, mounted staghorn ferns, kokedama kits, and more quirky-yet-stylish indoor plant-based decor. Speaking of stylish, their planter selection is on point, too.
With plant collections specifically curated for urban dwellers, Horti primarily serves the NYC area but also extends their service beyond the Big Apple and offsets the shipping cost by packaging empty pots with dehydrated (in other words, lighter) soil. Choose a monthly subscription of plants that are pet-friendly, perfect for newbies, targeted to a plant “hoarder” (ahem, we prefer the term “collector”), or includes “naked plants” (just the greenery, ma’am!). No matter what plan you choose, you can bet on some nice-looking live additions to your home.
It’s only natural that the mega-online retailer had its own dedicated houseplant storefront. We’re impressed with their selection, too–it doesn’t just include the usual suspects you typically see sprinkled around offices (not that there’s anything wrong with those). Find air plant collections, funky ferns, boldly patterned prayer plants, and a lot more. The one drawback is a lack of curation, so beginning plant owners might feel a bit overwhelmed with the shopping experience.
