5 neue Jobs in der Pflanzenszene - FARBIO® - Nachhaltige Bio-Flüssigdünger aus Hamburg

The topic of houseplants has never been bigger than it is right now. This can be seen in the new jobs that have developed from the plant boom in recent years. It now goes far beyond the well-known gardening, floristry and horticultural professions.

Plant advice

A plant doctor existed before, but often only for the garden if the hedge or lawn was causing problems. You can now also get advice on houseplants, often completely digitally via video call. But not only when your houseplants are failing are there people who will give you advice, but before you buy you can also get information about which plants actually suit you!

Plant artist

The plant community loves houseplants and everything that has to do with them! Of course also works of art with plants. Numerous talented artists now offer their prints, buttons and merch with plant designs on platforms like Etsy. Furthermore, plants have become popular photography subjects. Living plant art is also available for auction, such as creative terrariums. Artistic exhibitions where everything revolves around natural materials are also becoming increasingly popular.

Interior design with plants

Furnishing has always been an important topic, but with the boom in houseplants it has developed in a completely new direction. Numerous books about interior design with plants have been published in recent years. Instagram accounts that revolve around the green interior design style are also popular and numerous. There are also courses online that teach you how to properly decorate with plants and create rooms inspired by nature. Plant design is the art of beautifying interior spaces with a living design object: the plant. The goal is to create a living environment that radiates harmony and promotes health.


There are now many great accounts about plants on Instagram, YouTube, Tiktok and podcast platforms. Tips & tricks, beautiful photographs and funny memes as well as videos are mainly shared. One could almost say that the plant scene has only grown so large because of the people who shared their love of plants. There are now even plantfluencers who publish their own books and do innovative collaborations with large companies!

Sell ​​plant cuttings & accessories

Because most houseplants are easy to propagate, there are many plant fans who sell their cuttings. You can often get your hands on some home-grown treasures on platforms like eBay Classifieds or Jodel. Given the high prices that some rarities command, we're not surprised that selling cuttings can be a lucrative business for plant professionals. It is also trendy to mix soil substrates yourself and sell them to other plant fans.
