You know, like #trendy, #bohemian, #coolvibes, #killinthegame type style. So how can you and your plants reach such elevated style status? It’s all about mixing, matching, feeling out your space, and not being afraid to make a change!

There are a million different ways to mix and match your plants and pots to create varying looks and feels. We’ve got a few personal preferences ourselves, so keep reading for some of our favorite tips and tricks.

Diversify and Groupify

  • Try combining various sizes of plants, materials, and textures to create interesting and diverse looks in your space. As far as colors go we recommend starting with neutrals for your plant pots and then throwing in a few patterned pieces to keep things interesting. This set of ceramic succulent pots offers a great mix of neutrals and color as well as dual textures for a fresh look.

  • Group some of your plants together to create an eye-catching statement. Not only is this visually pleasing, but it can be a great boost for your plants too. When you group your plants, it can create a mini-microclimate, helping out plants that like humidity, such as bromeliads, cast iron plants, ferns, and philodendrons.

Style for Every Size

  • If you’ve got a tall plant with large foliage like the ever-classy fiddle-leaf fig, try putting it in a woven basket for an ultra-trendy look. Putting your plant into a woven basket like this gorgeous seagrass belly basket also makes it really easy to flexibly repot later on if you feel a change coming on. And that’s what we call a major plant hack.

  • For medium sized plants, try keeping things minimal with concrete or metallic planters to let the foliage be the center of attention. These clay planter pots or this rose gold pot are perfect for letting your plants shine.
  • Make the presence of little plants seem big with pots that add pops of color to your space. Look out for pots that match accessories in your space such as pillows, blankets, or wall art to help tie everything together. 
  • At the end of the day your style is yours, so don’t be afraid to experiment and try out different plant/pot combinations!
