Which potted plants are mostly found in German households?
Houseplants, or potted plants, play an important role when it comes to indoor climate and homely atmosphere. How do you think Germans spend a lot of money on indoor plants? According to statistics, the sum is about 50 million euros annually, which actually corresponds to only 6.50 euros per capita.
That's really not much, but let's put the numbers aside and let's see what potted flowers we Germans buy the most.
Among them you will find 28 plant species that most often decorate our apartments. You probably also have one or more of them.
The most popular indoor plants - you can find them in the following list
The houseplants, no matter green or flowering, definitely have a positive effect on the ambience in which we find ourselves and immediately on us. In a green space you feel more relaxed and quiet. In fact, the plants reduce stress and filter air pollutants at the same time. That's nothing new for you, is it? There are many reasons to invest time and money in indoor plants. Of course I do not need to convince you. Sometimes you just do not know how to cherish and nurture potted plants and that's why you do not buy any. But there are also those plants that are robust and do not need great care. Look for a potted flower from the one shown below and let yourself know what kind of care this needs. If you have the right location for this home, it needs more or less light, etc. This may be your new hobby, who knows ... We hope you enjoy it! And now look at Germany's most popular houseplants.
