From avocados, dachshunds and French bulldogs to green tea, selfies and social media – the unique obsessions of the millennial generation have been well-documented in recent years. Millennials have been even credited with the sudden increase in popularity of house plants. A possible explanation for this is that a large proportion of millennials rent rather than own their homes, which often means they are not allowed to redecorate or keep pets in the property. For those living in small urban properties, with little or no outside space, having plants in the home is one way of bringing the outside in.
This latest obsession with plant-raising has not only taken over millennial homes but also offices and creative spaces. Aside from sharing photos on social media of indoor plants and ‘green’ workspaces, there are proven benefits to having more plants around the office.
