Once a kindergarten teacher, now your go-to guide for all things DIY. My passion for teaching didn't stop when I left the classroom - I merely switched from ABCs to DIYs. I've learned a lot from transforming my own home from scratch, and now I'm here to pass on that knowledge to you.
When we moved into our first home, I was an avid gardener in our yard but I stuck to faux plants inside minus a fiddle leaf fig or two. It felt very intimidating to think of keeping a plant alive indoors. Fast forward to now, just about every room in our home has a real houseplant. For the most part, they’re thriving. I’m still learning what does and doesn’t work in our home or where it our home houseplants work the best.
One of the best ways to learn is to try yourself. I’ve noticed when going to local home improvement stores, I see the same generic houseplants over and over. Which is okay but I’m wanting to branch out some. Today I’m sharing a list of small businesses that have curated beautiful online stores to deliver houseplants right to your front door. You get the opportunity to get your hands on new types of houseplants for your home while also supporting small businesses. And not to mention the prefect way to spread a little cheer if you want to send someone a surprise in the mail, or even as a housewarming gift.
First, can we stop for a moment and appreciate this creative name for this business. That’s what caught my eye but the owners, Kyle and Jason, had me sticking around with their gorgeous Instagram feed full of all of their stunning plants. Reviews rave about their packaging when shipping the plants. And if you’re local to the Orlando, FL area, they host pop up shops throughout Central Florida. Plant restock every Wednesday.
Nestled in the College Hill area of Cincinatti, OH, this plant shop brings design and houseplants together in a home. Megan, the owner, makes sure to offer a curated selection of houseplants while also providing plant care information to allow anyone and everyone to succeed with their plant care. Plants can be purchased through their website but be quick because they sell out quickly!

Prissylily Plants offers a wide range of houseplants and all through their Etsy shop. This is one of the few without a type of store front and offers shipping to the US and Canada. My Canada friends, this one is for you! There’s also an abundance of reviews on their Etsy shop with how healthy the plants are and how carefully packaged they arrive.
Forage Plants I based around the mission of bringing purpose into a home with plants versus just wanting a plant. They’re determined to show every person that there’s a plant for them (which I love). They have a few brick an mortar stores in Colorado and Kentucky. For those not in those areas, you can easily purchase plants to be delivered to your front door. Warning: it looks like they sell out quickly.

Grow Plant Shop offers a variety of houseplants that are perfect for the novice to the expert. Their goal is to get you comfortable with houseplants so you continue to grow as well.

Otherwise, take advantage of their expedited shipping where their plants arrive to your home carefully packaged.

The Sill is probably one of the more well known home delivery services when it comes to houseplants. And for good reason! Their plants start at $5 and one of the few that also offer flowering plants. Their plants are also available in an assortment of sizes depending on what you’re looking for. Their selection isn’t huge but they have some plants you’ll be grabbing for yourself or putting on your plant wishlist.
The mission of Urban Sprouts caught my attention immediately: Boutique plant shop specializing in helping new plant parents succeed.

Through PIEP’s website you can explore to see which houseplants they have available for shipping. You’ll be happily pleased that you’ll have plenty to choose from.

I love this concept of making it easier for people to find the perfect plant for their desk. This could be at home or in the office. The best part is, these are going to be hard-to-kill plants since your desk may not be next to a window. It’s all about having that better work space and you can have the plant shipped to your work to make it even easier.
If you try any of these ship to home plant services, you’ll have to let me know! I’ll be checking out each one personally starting at the top of the list. I wonder how many houseplants I can add to my home before Ryan realizes it. . . Until then, my friends, let’s keep in touch!
