The Surprising Place Where You Can Find Budget-Friendly Plants and Stylish Planters
Besides being home to (yep!) all things modern, AllModern also has a surprisingly large selection of plants, trees, and very cute planters to add some greenery to your space. They even have a lot of high quality faux options if your thumb isn’t so green or you want to mix some faux plants in with your live plant buddies. AllModern’s plants and plant accessories are all pretty well priced to begin with, and some are even on sale right now—here are our favorites to get you started!
White Bird of Paradise Plant in Basket
Like many of AllModern’s live plants, this Bird of Paradise comes all ready to go in its own planter. Birds of Paradise plants add a touch of the tropics to your space, developing their iconic bird-shaped blooms if placed in full sunlight. They’re also well-suited to migrate to a balcony or backyard for the summer months and spend the winter in a sunny spot indoors.

Snake Plant in Basket
A snake plant (also known as “mother-in-law’s tongue”… but that gets awkward if your actual mother-in-law comes to visit) is one of the easiest indoor plants to take care of. As AllModern puts it, snake plants “thrive on neglect”, so this is a great choice for first-time plant parents or as a maintenance-free housewarming gift.

Revival Ceramics The Four With Rosewood Plinth
“Plinth” is a fancy name for a pedestal, like one you’d see supporting a marble bust or other sculpture. This planter also deserves that fancy name, thanks to its solid rosewood base which supports a matte ceramic stoneware pot. Consider this a luxurious penthouse for plants.

Faux Succulent Plant in Pot
I have a friend who was once given a faux succulent as a gift and proceeded to water it for over a year before a co-worker politely informed him that it was actually fake. To be fair, faux succulents like the ones in this little garden look convincingly real, so it’s an honest mistake! Even though it requires no watering, you could give this garden a mist every once in awhile if that makes you feel like a better plant parent (and to ward off dust).
