When you’re ready for more adult responsibilities but not quite prepared for a pet, taking care of a plant is a happy medium. And for those new to independent living, hanging a few ferns or ficas around will add more greenery to your concrete box in the sky.
Sure, it makes sense to just head down to Rona or Home Depot and grab a few potted plants but not everyone has access to a vehicle. And can you imagine having to lug around a huge Kentia Palm on a crowded subway in 30-degree weather? Hard pass.
Here are some online retailers that will deliver plants right to your door so you don’t have to deal with the hassle.
No matter the shape or size, Plant Collective can deliver plants anywhere in Canada with a “14-day happiness guarantee.” There’s a huge sale on right now where you can get a snake plant or assorted ferns for 50% off.
As the saying goes, if you can’t go anywhere tropical, bring the tropics to you. Interior Plants based in Mississauga, Ontario offers home delivery for a small fee. Their tropical plants range anywhere between $5 and $150.
From the family farm nestled on 24 acres in South Surrey, B.C., WCG offers a variety of stunning flowers and plants for the home. Take, for instance, this collection of white orchids planted in a white ceramic dish for just $69.
