Started in October 2016, Boys with Plants is a popular plant-based Instagram account that is rapidly gaining popularity with more than 32k followers. By merging two of the most Instagrammable trends — plants and cute boys — the account has hit a soft spot among social media users. If you’ve been trying to go more green — plant trees, keep house plants — this might be the inspiration you need.

The account boasts of guys of all ages, from all ethnic backgrounds clicked around plants. While some of the pictures are a bit risque, most are simply men posing with plants or doing some gardening, or just being themselves amidst nature. That’s pretty much it.

The pictures are selected from submissions made through the hashtag #boyswithplants. The plants in display are also varied. From tropical plants to succulents, house plants to wild flowers, everything has been captured in the photos.

What’s really interesting is that the men are rarely the subject of the photos. If you notice carefully, they are secondary to the frame. It’s the plants that are getting all the attention. So, this isn’t just another platform for showing off sculpted torsos and/or chiselled shoulders. It’s all about going green!
