Twenty Must Follow Plant Instagrammers

This is our top 20 must-follow Instagram plant accounts list for lovers of houseplants and Instagram.  If you're a lover of plants and social media like we are, the two meet on Instagram where a community of plant lovers share their passion, one post at a time. The social media site is full of accounts that are dedicated to houseplant lust and the unending feed of photographs are attracting followers by the thousands. We spent some time looking through #hashtags, the favorite way to categorize posts, to identify some of our favorites to share with our customers, who like us, love a great picture of a beautiful plant to bring joy to their day. The only thing better is the real thing (which we can help you with).

First, give us a follow @greenflorals!

We use hashtags to share our work (there are some very creative ones) like #plantaddict, #plantporn, #plantsofinstagram as well as more mundane tags like #sandiegoplantshop, #sandiegoplants, #sandiegofloraldesigner, #sandiegohomeandgarden, #sandiegoliving, #sandiegoevents, and #sandiegoweddingflorist. We post our San Diego event and wedding pictures here too. When you want a break from social media and you're ready for a taste of the real thing, we invite you to come to browse our Hillcrest floral and plant store. If you're just too busy to get away, take a peek at our website to find that perfect plant for your home, office, or patio and remember, we deliver.

Here are some of the best plant-focused accounts we think you will enjoy following on Instagram.

What a difference an oversized mirror can make in a space. Like using homemade special effects a mirror bounces light, makes the room look double the size and even cheats the eye into believing you might have more plant babies than you really do. #homemade #specialeffects #designtips #MOMme | pic via @celine.sathal _________________________ #mirror #mirrorpic #livingroomstyle #apartmentdecor #apartmentliving #apartmenttherapy #apartmentstyle #plantstyling #plantdecor #plantbabies #houseplants #indoorjungle #indoorplants #cheatsheet #plantjungle #plantspiration #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantsplantsplants #indoorgardening #plantdecor #plantstyling #decoratingwithplants #iloveplants #planthoarder #plantdesign #plantsofinstagram #planthouse #homedecorating
