Houseplants are back in a big way! It’s true what they say about everything “old is new again”. The last time people were crazy about this plant was back in the 70’s. This time around, however, there is a new affection for cactus, succulents, and air plants. If you don’t believe me just do a quick search on Pinterest, where according to Garden Media’s 2019 Plant Trends Report, searches for indoor plants are up 90% compared to previous years. And at the top of that search list is “succulents”.
At the recent International Floriculture Expo – the largest floral B2B trade show in North America – in Miami Beach, this trend was obvious by the increased number of plant-focused vendors.
And in response to all the buzz, around succulents and air plants in particular, the 1-800 Flowers retail location in Carle Place, NY held a Creative Workshop for their customers and friends. Each attendee made their own succulent garden and air plant drift wood sculpture.
