Time-strapped decorators likely buy their couches, mattresses, and even paint online, so why not houseplants, too? Plants add a burst of both color and liveliness to a space, and can even impart a calming, anxiety-reducing effect to the people within it. The rising popularity of plant ownership in recent years seems to signal a desire for connection to the home that doesn't require the same level of daily care that a pet does.
