Yes, plants have trends too. In addition to the latest colors of the season and the trend pieces for interior design, you may also be interested in the latest plant trends. And so that you don't have to click through the forums and Instagram pages yourself, we've researched for you and picked out the 8 newest and coolest plant trends:
sustainability in planting
In 2023, sustainability will be a top priority, zero waste is a trend that you should definitely be part of. Instead of the latest pots and vases, you could try upcycling and repurposing something you already have. When buying your plants, you could make sure that the plants are not imported, but may come from a local nursery and have also grown there. When it comes to caring for the plants, everything revolves around sustainability. When choosing fertilizer, you could also use organic fertilizer instead of artificial fertilizer. Our FARBIO® Nitrogen Bio-Boost can be used for all plants and naturally supports your plants with important nutrients.
Large plants indoors
In particular, the demand for greenery in public buildings and interiors has increased. Because these rooms are often spacious and have high ceilings, large plants will be in trend. If you have a lot of space in your apartment and especially high ceilings, you should think about a top-class houseplant. Such a plant as banyan tree and bird of paradise or trees for interiors are real eye-catchers and can serve as a statement piece for your interior design. In addition, they improve the indoor climate and definitely your mood!
Climbing and flowering plants alongside muted and earthy tones
In 2023, plants will not play second fiddle, but set the tone. The interior decoration will follow the greenery and not the other way around. Climbing plants take up the space they are entitled to and flowering plants determine the color scheme of your rooms. You benefit too, because your rooms will soon be like green oases that will ensure your relaxation. Only the care of your new houseplants will be a little more complicated. Because in order to do justice to the climbing green, climbing aids must be available, which could limit the accessibility of some book walls and shelves. If you want to bloom beautifully, you also have to be supplied with the right nutrients, gone are the days of the undemanding cactus, now you have to fertilize and repot from time to time!
Comeback of the bourgeois orchid
Known as a popular souvenir and unloved, complicated houseplant: the orchid. It will make a comeback in 2023. The graceful, fragile and subtle orchid will be particularly popular with lovers of clean, simple design. The flowers of the orchid, which are particularly delightful with white, light pink or cream-colored tones, look almost fake. There is hardly any green on them and their subtle presence is often overlooked. The trick when caring for the sensitive orchid is to water it from time to time and then wait for the soil to dry completely. It is important to have a pot with a hole and a saucer so that no waterlogging can form.
Heat-resistant plants for the balcony
Especially in view of the changing climate, our balcony plants are also faced with major challenges. No more hanging gardenia as it will give up completely after a few days of scorching heat and scorching asphalt. Plants that can withstand these adverse conditions include: dipladenia, oleander, rosemary, lavender and stonecrop.
Homegrown herbs and vegetables
"Urban Gardening" is the name of the trend that has existed for a long time but will become more and more important with the new environmental awareness. In the middle of the city there are already a few gardens in the inner courtyards and on the roofs of the large apartment buildings. These gardens in the city also improve air quality, lower the inner city climate, contribute to a better connection between consumers and food and are truly organic and sustainable. If you're concerned about the pollution of food with fine dust and exhaust gases: Scientists* have looked into exactly this topic and found that vegetables grown in cities are nowhere near as contaminated with toxins as conventionally planted vegetables from the supermarket .
Bee pastures for the city
We all know how important bees are to the survival of our ecosystem and the entire planet. As part of the "Urban Gardening" trend, our hard-working helpers should also feel comfortable. For their sake, you should plant flowering plants on your balcony or garden, which offer bees, bumblebees, butterflies and Co. plenty of pollen and nectar. This trend is a win-win situation, because you can enjoy the scent and the colorful flowers of the plants and the insects can also live in the city center despite the big city hell. Maybe the little guests inspire you so much that you could imagine letting a few subtenants move in with you. City beekeepers are always happy to have another place to put their beehives.
Planted exterior facades
A trend that will hopefully increase in the future. It offers everyone something to look at and has a demonstrably positive effect on the inner city climate. Another advantage is the noise-insulating effect of the green exterior facades and a heat-insulating effect for the buildings whose facades are green. Green roofs have been known for a long time, but in the future the plants should not only grow horizontally but also vertically. From mosses and ferns to bushes and trees, everything should be there and give city dwellers the feeling of having a bit of nature between concrete and asphalt.
