Favourites: Apart from the Monstera and Pilea which are everyone’s favourite because they are so fun to grow, my new favourite plant is the Strelitzia nicolai (Giant Bird of Paradise) because it’s such a statement plant that gives my flat an ultra-tropical, jungle look.

Green-artisan / songwriter

Favourites: Indoor plants are my favourites. I grew up between my mother’s and my grandmother’s house and, though they were very different environments, lush plants were a fixture in both places. If I had to name a favourite one, this would be my Ficus lyrata! I like its hard yet fragile leaves, as mysterious as the sound of the instrument the plant derives its name from.

Plant Broker

Favourites: Aroids, Epiphytes & Caudiciforms… Oh my! I LOVE plants that have developed specialized adaptations to allow them to thrive in precarious situations – whether those are aerial roots to provide anchorage of a plant in the treetops, swollen caudices to store water for arid-climate plants or unique trichomes that allow uptake of water through the leaves of the plant.
