The Cheapest Places to Buy Plants Online




Many trends make having plants part of home décor possible.

Buying plants is a great way of incorporating outdoor style with the indoors.

Hanging air plants or Tillandsia is very popular for those seeking a minimal yet impactful décor style.

There are also the ever-so-popular terrariums, which are typically in glass bowls, similar to a fishbowl.

This simple yet stylish approach to incorporating plants and a touch of green into one’s home is not only possible but affordable.

Depending on where you go, you can spend anywhere from $10 to $100; it all comes down to what you are looking for and how much you are willing to pay.

Here are five places where you can find cheap and affordable plants.

Shop at Amazon, and you can find pretty much anything and everything.

When it comes to finding cheap and affordable plants, it’s no different.

Amazon offers an array of cheap plants that look just as good as the real thing.

Depending on how much space you have and your budget, you can find plants that come with a shelf to stand on or pots for hanging.

Some plants are designed specifically for hanging which can take up a lot of wall space in general; again, this is going to depend on how much room you are willing to dedicate to your plant.

A few types of plants that you can find on Amazon include:

  • Mini Eucalyptus
  • Air Planters
  • Terrariums
  • Money Tree
  • Aloe Vera

Despite many of the plants on Amazon often being fake, you can find some suppliers on Amazon that ship real plants.

At the end of the day, there are an array of types of plants that come in different sizes and price points, which means that no matter your budget or style, there is a plant on Amazon to suit your needs.

Whether you are a newbie green thumb enthusiast or if you are looking to add some green to your home, Amazon has it all.
