    1. A fiddle leaf fig because it's The Instagram Plant right now, and if there's one bandwagon you should jump on, it's the one with pretty foliage.

    Promising review: “Buying a live plant on the internet seemed like one of the most dangerous decisions I'd ever made, but it came beautifully and carefully swaddled. It's been several weeks and my fiddle leaf fig is growing handsomely in his new home. Together we enjoy indirect sunlight from a north facing window and listening to the NPR program Serial. We are very happy.” —E. Majeski

    Get it from Amazon for $17.50.

    2. A set of cute lil' succulents that even the laziest and most forgetful of gardeners will be able to keep alive.

    This company donates a portion of their proceeds to animal shelters!

    Promising review: “I decided to buy this set because I wanted to bring a little life into my workshop that didn't require too much attention. I was very shocked when I received them at how tiny they were, but during one of my trips to Lowes I was able to buy some succulent potting mix and some cheap pots and after transplanting these they grew SO fast. I am certain they will be ready for even larger pots soon. They were shipped securely and were extremely healthy as you can see from my photo. Since buying these my hobby has gone a little crazy and now I am buying cacti and other things but I highly recommend these for beginners. I even purchased a second set and potted them as a gift to a loved one to bring to the office.” —LCF

    Also, the planters aren't included, but you can get a set of four from Amazon for $17.99.

    3. A pair of mini parlor palms because every plant deserves to have a buddy.

    Promising review: “These arrived quickly and in perfect condition. They have a fair amount of shoots. Parlor palms are super easy plants to care for. They'll survive in darkish corners. Even in light they are slooow growers. It takes years for one to reach its full height (2-4 feet). These are ideal for terrariums, table tops, and small spaces. I think they're a beautiful, fresh, and clean looking houseplant.” —Oregonians

    Get them from Amazon for $10.

    4. A cat palm that'll purify your air and is also pet safe, so you won't have to worry about your cat plant hurting your cat pet.


    Promising review: “I don't usually write reviews but I had to because this plant is fantastic. This plant arrived in perfect condition. I've bought so many plants over the years and I've never had one without imperfection, until now. It was much larger than I expected but I'm not complaining. It immediately put me in a great mood, making my house feel tropical and the air seemed fresher. The packaging was top notch and it arrived safely. My kitten loves it too.” —anti4

    Get it from Walmart for $31.17.

    5. A philodendron with perfect heart shaped leaves, so you'll be reminded that your plant loves you whenever you look at it.

    Promising review: “Arrived healthy and relatively happy after a couple of days in a shipping box. A little water and some light perked it up — and since transferring into a planter, it's been happily producing new leaves and slowly extending its reach. Nice size plant, pest free, and arrived very quickly. It's now keeping me company at work and bringing a little freshness to my workspace.” —Roxanne R.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.

    6. A split-leaf monstera that'll live up to its name, not by being scary, but by growing monstrously big in just a few months.

    Promising review: “I received a small but very healthy plant that I lovingly named Philly Cheesesteak. Phil is doing wonderfully in my home and growing larger by the day. The leaves recently started to expand in width and splits are emerging on a few leaves. I've had this plant a little over five months now! Great plant!” —NaliniR

    Get it from Amazon for $11.90.

    7. An elegant orchid for confident, expert gardeners, or at the very least, someone who won't forget to water it.


    Get it from 1-800-Flowers for $34.99 (originally $49.99, available in two colors).

    8. A Chinese evergreen plant with the prettiest pink leaves to inspire your inner plant-loving Elle Woods.

    Home Depot

    Get it from the Home Depot for $17.98.

    9. A set of marimo moss balls that can either be a companion and tank cleaner for your fish, or just a pet on their own; they're that stinkin' cute.

    Promising review: “These are like little green tribbles — without the cooing and rampant reproduction! I got them for my betta. A couple of the little ones keep the water amazingly clean! I also teach biology, and I love the Japanese culture associated with these unusual algal spheres (they aren't actual moss, but relatives of their ancestors). They are fun just as pretty little pets to have on one's desk or other not-too-brightly lit place. And they routinely pack a couple extras in each container!” —Kathleen Francis

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $12.95.

    10. A pilea that'll sprout tons of lil' babies for you to give to friends and family (or just start a pilea army in your apartment, it's up to you).

    Promising review: “Couldn't be happier with this plant. It arrived sooner than expected and in great shape. I was worried because we are currently going through a heatwave that the plant would arrive wilted and in shock, but the seller knows what they are doing. It also came with instructions on how to care for the plant as well as plant food. I have looked high and low for this plant at local nurseries and plant shows but no one seems to have it. This is actually a gift for my friend who's been wanting one for a while now. After opening up the package and seeing it, I kind of want one for myself now. Super cute plant!” —AmazonCustomer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95.

    11. A trio of aloe plants because the best things in life come in threes, and also can help soothe your skin after a sunburn.

    Promising review: “This is 100% true... I literally tried to replant a weed in my yard and killed it. I think I might be the world's first serial plant killer. People come to my house and laugh at the flowers out front so I was more than apprehensive about buying these. When they arrived I was literally calling family members asking 'what do I do' before I attempted to repot them. They were packaged perfectly and looked great when they came out of the box. I said a prayer and finally plucked up the nerve to repot them. I'm proud and shocked to report they are absolutely thriving!! :) I am blown away. When I move I will be buying more to plant in my yard.” —Lisa W

    Get the set of three from Amazon for $28.

    12. A snake plant that's super hardy and is NASA certified to clean the air in your house. Just don't tell your partner's mom that another name for this plant is Mother-in-Law's Tongue!

    Promising review: “These arrived in excellent condition. Very impressed with packaging! As I am of the plants themselves. Undamaged, no wilting or yellowing. Potted them the same day and they are thriving. It has only been two weeks maybe and I have a baby shooting up. Very happy with my purchase.” —theresa gould

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

    13. A burgundy rubber plant with uniquely colored leaves that'll impress your houseguests and Insta followers alike.

    Promising review: “The plant arrived five days early and I could not be more impressed! It arrived packaged in a tall box and was cushioned by foam peanuts. Although some leaves were bent, the plant opened itself up nicely after some time. The plant pot was wrapped in plastic and the soil was moist (repotted in the pictures). You can tell that the nursery took a lot of care to ensure the plant would not only make it through its journey but thrive once getting to its destination. This rubber tree arrived in stunning condition and is a terrific addition to my collection!” —Tisoy

    Get it from Amazon for $16.

    14. A bird's nest fern that loves low light and only needs to be watered once a week, which makes it practically the perfect office plant.

    The Sill

    The Sill guarantees their plants for a year after purchase, so you won't need to worry about your plant buddy dying on you.

    Get it from The Sill for $58.

    15. A set of air plants so low-maintenance they literally survive on air! (Okay, not really, you still have to soak them in water occasionally, but that's still a lot less work than other plants.)

    Promising review: “These are great! They arrived much more quickly than anticipated. Each air plant was individually packaged in a recyclable paper bag and labeled accordingly, and they cared to additionally take the time to include a care sheet. I am exceptionally happy, very professional — thank you!!” —lo0ovebug

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $10.95.

    16. A sweet mint plant that won't just look cute on your windowsill, it'll also provide flavorings and garnishes for any number of dishes, and can even prevent pests.

    Walmart, Vandiver L Chaplin (van Chaplin Photography) / Walmart

    Promising review: “I purchased this mint last year and it's still going strong now in two different pots. It has a really nice sweet mint flavor that is great to use for tea, smoothies, fruit garnish, chopped in salads, and I've even used it as a green in soups. The large, crinkly, leaves make it easy to chop. My original plant sent out shoots that took root in another pot, so now I have two. I'm pretty sure it could take over an entire garden if allowed to do so. A medium to large pot works nicely. The leaves died off in the winter, but it all regrew in the spring.” —aLightningbug

    Get it from Walmart for $4.98.

    17. A Lunarly subscription so you can get a new plant delivered to your door most months, as well as some fun goodies and tools to help you set ~good intentions~ for the month ahead.


    Some months include a candle instead of a plant, but the fun extras (like lip balm, bath bombs, incense, and journals) come no matter what.

    Get a subscription from Lunarly for $40 a month.

    18. A Venus flytrap, because it's never not awesome to watch those guys eat flies.

    Promising review: “Got this for my husband for his birthday. It's been almost two months and it has thrived. I think his favorite part is feeding bugs to the plant. We watch all the videos on the seller's website, they are very helpful. We also purchased needle-nose tweezers, a spray bottle, and plastic bowl to hold the water. He feeds the plant small crickets and spiders that get into the house. :)” —blue-skies

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $21.39.

    19. Or a cape sundew for all the carnivorous plant hipsters who are so over Venus flytraps. Plus, this helpful guy will eliminate any fruit flies that are hanging around.

    Promising review: “My African violets had an infestation of fungal gnats which are not harmful, just annoying. Rather than resort to chemicals, I read about predatory plants and decided to try one. The sundew was chosen based on 'cute' and its love of gnats. Within two days of placing this plant near the violets, it was hard at work snagging gnats. The more gnats, the prettier the plant and the more distilled water it requires. Follow directions and those pesky gnats will disappear.” —Zappo Sister

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    20. A set of bamboo stalks that'll still grow really well in low light, and may even bring some luck to your environment.

    Promising review: “I bought these to make an arrangement in a large vase using some river rocks. This was two years ago. My plant is as healthy as can be and it looks absolutely beautiful. My living room is relatively low light, but the hearty lil thing is still going strong. I think even my plant killer friends could keep this alive (they have even killed air plants and succulents). It’s about three feet high now and the roots made a lovely display going down through the rocks in the vase. Can’t say enough about how great a purchase this was!” —JinnyBee

    Get ten stalks from Amazon for $18.50.

    21. A set of assorted cactus buddies for everyone that's on Team Cacti 'Til I Die.

    Promising review: “Awesome products! They came packaged perfectly! We live in a very cold climate and they even included heaters in the box. They were in perfect shape when they arrived, and I could not love them more! Very impressed!” —Heidi

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $19.

    22. A peace lily that'll maybe finally bring some tranquility into your home — it's also another great easy to care for, low-light tolerant option.

    Promising review: “I was amazed at how much foliage a six inch potted plant could produce! I will probably re-pot soon to give it more breathing/growing room. I had a difficult time deciding where to put it, as it looked amazing everywhere I tried it. I also love that it is detoxifying my indoor air. This was ordered for me as a birthday gift and it was my favorite. It's only been one week and I like the air in my bedroom much better than the rest of the house. I highly recommend this plant. Also, This plant is very dramatic when it needs water, all of the leaves fall as if the plant is dead, only to revive again within a day.” —Adamn

    Get it from Amazon for $16.

    23. A zebra plant with a unique variegated pattern reminiscent of its namesake to add a dash of cool to your living space.

    Promising review: “Beautiful! I wanted this succulent for over a year and looked everywhere locally but without success. I finally decided to purchase this online and am so happy that I did! It is so lovely! I have begun purchasing flowers/trees from Amazon more frequently and have so far never been disappointed. I love the exotic varieties available and have been impressed with the shipping and health of the plants.” —DeSunshine

    Get it from Amazon for $15.48.

    24. A white bird of paradise to bring a little bit of tropical flair to your home, whether you live in Miami or Boston.


    Promising review: “This BoP plant was beyond what I was expecting. It arrived early, it was packaged very well, no damages, box was labeled 'Live Plant.' The plant is large and beautiful, and the price was amazing. I have had the plant a little over a week and a new leave has appeared. So far so good. Very pleased!” —CLee8129

    Get it from Walmart for $35.31.

    25. A jade plant that's a great option for someone who wants the ease of a succulent or a cactus, without the possibility of getting poked.

    Promising review: “I may have to order a few more of these! This little lovely is doing so well, and it sits on my desk at work. It arrived packaged very well and healthy. No broken stems or brown leaves. This is an ideal plant for those without a green thumb. I don't know how many times I've forgotten to water it and it still manages to thrive. I think the key is to not over water it! So it's very forgiving.” —Chandra

    Get it from Amazon for $5.91.

    26. A prayer plant with leaves that actually close up at night, so you'll be treated to a little slo-mo show every evening.

    Promising review: “Probably one of my all time favorite plants!! So beautiful and I love that it ‘prays’ at night. I have found that these really like to be grouped with other plants and kept in areas of high humidity. I have mine in the bathroom with other plants and also sitting in a tray or rocks with water. It has grown tons of new leaves and has even flowered. Love this plant and highly recommend it.” —Courtney Rao

    Get it from Amazon for $15.54.

    27. An umbrella plant to shield you from all of life's rains — okay, not really, but it'll for sure look nice on a side table or in a window.

    Home Depot

    Get it from the Home Depot for $18.98.

    28. A corn plant that won't actually grow corn (sorry) but it will purify the air and look dang good in your living room.


    Promising review: “I was very wary of online live plant shopping with home delivery. But it worked! It survived fine being in the carton over the long holiday weekend. I am pleased with my purchase even though I had spilled dirt all over the place when I opened the carton. Dirt cleaned up. Dropped plant into a pretty planter and it looks great. Since I am disabled and can't go pick one up at stores, this was a welcomed alternative. Thanks!” —retfunky

    Get it from Walmart for $25.54.

    29. A sago palm bonsai with a cute lil' pineapple shaped base that doesn't require as much attention as most bonsai, but will still last forever in your home.


    Promising review: “Purchased this for my husband who just lost his 20 year old sago palm to old age. I feel very confident this bonsai will thrive for years to come! It is beautiful and was packaged very tightly and soundly to protect from damage. The blue potting container is lovely. Some of the quills on the plant are bent from packing but that’s expected. Delivered in the rain inside a plastic protector bag and was relatively untouched by the water. I plan to buy more bonsais from this seller in the future, thank you for a beautiful product! A care sheet was also included in the box with the bonsai.” —Christine Silver

    Get it from Amazon for $27.81.

    Sir David Attenborough gets it.
