There is always a room for one more plant pot.

The secret to creating a successful plant shelf, whether you are an experienced gardener or just getting started on this journey, lies in finding a balance between aesthetics and functionality.

Think about how much sunlight the plant will need, how much space will be required for its growth as well as what colors and texture would fit with the rest of your room.

You can create dynamic and visually appealing displays simply by mixing different varieties of plants together.

A few selected floating shelves can make quite an impressive statement for those who prefer minimalist approach.

When the look is kept clean and uncluttered by having sleek modern pots with sculptural plants such as succulents or cacti.

Similarly, if you love things to be more on the eclectic side then go ahead try using some vintage styled shelving units combined with trailing vines some bushy ferns and other flowering plants mixed up.

This creates depth of field allowing one’s personality to shine through.

Don’t forget vertical space.

To maximize greenery without taking up too much floor area use wall-mounted pots, hanging racks or tiered stands for potted plants.

They work perfectly in small apartments where floor space may be limited.

Lastly, the best plant shelf ideas should embody your personal style while suiting the needs of your indoor garden.

Feel free to experiment with different arrangements until you find what works best for you.

But most importantly just have fun.

Caring for plants is a rewarding experience because it gives one a sense of fulfillment as well as bringing nature closer through one’s own efforts on a daily basis.
