I’ve had a torrid love affair with plants my whole life. Can’t explain it but sometimes when I walk pass a nursery I see them waving to me as if to say “hello, friend!”. Do I sound crazy yet? Well, well, well. I blame it on these Instagram accounts who have been feeding my obsession.
Before this, plants, flowers and botanicals were a private passion. Something I kept to myself as I went hunting all over KL for a fiddle leaf fig. Today, you can’t walk into a cafe without bumping into a jungle of them. Maybe it’s the surge of construction and concrete all around us that’s caused this reaction, making us run towards the nearest green living thing and hug it. I’m just relieved I’m not the only crazy plant person around.
In fact, these eight Instagram accounts show me how I gotta up my game. They’re full of inspiration for your own garden sanctuary. Just one small warning: serious plant envy ahead.
1. for Fans Of Millennial Pink
The mood: Blue skies, pink walls and cool-as-cucumber plants.
To be clear, Plants On Pink do not discriminate against other pinks: flamingo, millennial and blush all serve as pretty backgrounds to the main stars of the feed, the plants.
Second star of the feed is the outdoor setting (and we know how much more photogenic we look when the sun is out).
In fact, the plants here all seem to know their angles really well – all that’s missing is their sunnies.
