There’s no shortage of plant-obsessed accounts to follow on Instagram. The hashtag #plantsofinstagram alone produces more than 1 million posts, most of which come straight from the hands of plant parents across the globe.
And if you’re anything like us, you depend on Instagram posts to help inspire and inform all of your gardening endeavors. So to ensure that your feed is always filled with helpful plant info, we rounded up 10 of the coolest plant accounts to follow on IG. Read ahead for a few of our favorite plant-friendly accounts on the ‘gram.
The Jungalow — @thejungalow
If you’re a fan of design-savvy plant-filled homes, @thejungalow is the Instagram feed you’ve been searching for. Brimming with colorful, boho-style interiors decked out in—you guessed it!—houseplants, @thejungalow is the stuff a plant parent’s dreams are made of.
I Plant Even — @iplanteven
Okay, we might be a little biased but we must say: @iplanteven, aka Apartment Therapy’s new plant-centric IG account is pretty incredible. In addition to posts of plant-filled spaces from readers and AT home tours, @iplanteven also regularly hosts open Q&A forums with other plant experts (like @thesill) to school followers on the art of indoor gardening.
Homestead Brooklyn — @homesteadbrooklyn
With the help of a watering system she hacked herself, plant mom Summer Rayne Oakes tends to nearly 700 houseplants inside her small Brooklyn apartment. Her IG account, @homesteadbrooklyn is a testament to her DIY gardening endeavors, complete with how-to videos, pretty pics, and her pet rescue chicken, Kippee.
Plants on Pink — @plantsonpink
Few things scream “millennial” like houseplants and millennial pink—so it was only a matter of time until the two joined forces on the ‘gram. Case in point: @plantsonpink, the brainchild of photographer Lotte Van Baalen, who documents her images of leafy plants against pale pink backgrounds to the delight of 18-34 year olds everywhere.
Houseplant Journal — @houseplantjournal
Make no mistake about it: engineer Darryl Cheng is a master plant parent. His IG account, @houseplantjournal, is an ode to all things gardening, complete with educational watering videos and all kinds of clever how-to’s to help aid your own home gardening efforts.
Cactus Magazine — @cactusmagazine
Urban Farmstead — @urbanfarmstead
Not all plant parent’s work indoors. Take for instance California-based gardener Kyle Hagerty, who dutifully documents his daily outdoor farming adventures on @urbanfarmstead, while simultaneously schooling followers on the ins-and-outs of successful gardening.
Houseplant Club — @houseplantclub
Searching for the perfect houseplant club to join on IG? Look no further than @houseplantclub, an online community for houseplant enthusiasts. Overflowing with plant-centric (and totally drool-worthy) design pics from plant parents and boutiques around the world, this is definitely one club we’re proud to be a part of.
Greenery NYC — @greenerynyc
Indoor urban landscaper Rebecca Bullene is doing her best to change the world, one plant at a time.

Justina Blakeney — @justinablakeney
We’re such big fans of plant parent Justina Blakeney’s design feed @thejungalow that it only felt right to include her personal IG account, @justinablakeney, on our list, too. Filled with behind-the-scenes pics from editorial shoots, plant shopping trips, and her other plant-minded adventures, Blakeney’s feed is an authentic look at the life of a real plant enthusiast.
