15 Ways to Show Off Your Plants

Keeping indoor plants is a beautiful hobby — from succulents to ferns to fiddle leaf figs, there are scads to choose from. Putting a live plant or two in your home adds a sense of permanence to any space, no matter how big or small. Whether you’re a brown thumb trying to turn over a new leaf or you’re a plant pro, we’ve got 15 potted plant arrangements that’ll have you nurturing your green thumb in no time.

1. Pretty Pots: While pretty pots might not actually make your plants any greener, it’ll be harder to forget to water them with such an eye-catching piece. If you don’t want to splurge on a planter, you can definitely DIY one. (via Studio Home)
