20+ People Who Started Bringing Plants Home and Couldn’t Stop

3 years ago

Cacti, ficuses, crocuses — these are probably the only names that come to mind for people who aren’t particularly keen on house plants. But people who’re seriously into floriculture know that there are also dracaenas, calatheas, ceropegia, and oxalis. But we should be careful when starting to breed these plants. Otherwise, there’s a serious risk of getting too involved in this exciting process and turning your apartment into an impassable jungle.

Yes, many members of the Bright Side team have their own green “pets.” But of course, we can’t compete with the people from our compilation.

“I bought this “tiny baby” today. My son cried, and my husband shouted, “Are you kidding me?!”
