More and more people are deciding to not have kids or to have them later in life and there is actually a meme going around the internet saying that pets are the new kids. That would make plants the new pets. They don’t put so much responsibility on one’s shoulders like a dog or a child would, but at the same time, it can bring as much joy to see them grow, flower and change before the owner’s eyes.
Growing plants is a big thing, especially during the pandemic and there are many communities on the internet where owners just show off their achievements or share caring tips. One of the biggest communities dedicated to home plants on Reddit is called r/houseplants and now it has just over 900k members. Bored Panda collected the most impressive photos of plants people shared here for you to enjoy.
