11 Crazy Cool House Plants Trending in 2016

No space is complete without a gorgeous, colorful house plant.

The stylish botanicals below are light years away from your mom’s fake ivy plant from the ’90s and way more cutting edge than your trusty old jade plant. Get ready to spruce up your indoor garden look in preparation for spring with one of these trending plants below.
