10 of the Most Instagrammable Houseplants

For this article, we decided to take a look at the most Instagrammable plants out there, and while this list might not surprise you, it can still help you decide which plant obtains the right to appear on your Instagram page. 

Without further ado, here’s our list of plants that will spruce up your Instagram page. 

1. Succulents

The first thing that comes to mind when talking about Instagram-worthy plants is succulents. And for good reasons. There are so many varieties out there, it’s almost impossible to choose one or not to find one that you love. 

There are over 11 million posts under the succulents tag on Instagram, so that says something about its popularity. Of course, to that number you can add the Instagram posts under the scientific name of a succulent – echeveria has over 1.5 million posts. 

2. Cacti

Cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti, the reason why we decided to put them in second place. Just like succulents, they come in a lot of shapes and colors. 

There are over 3.6 million posts under the cacti tag, but then again, you can add the number of Instagram posts under the scientific name. 

3. Hoya

Hoya is a genus of over 200 species. Hoya leaves are absolutely amazing and come in different sizes and shapes. What makes this genus Instagrammable, in our opinion, is their flowers, as all of them are shaped like a star with five corners. 

There are over 1.3 million posts under the hoya tag on Instagram, but the most popular picks are definitely the variegated varieties. 

4. Monstera Deliciosa 

When it comes to Instagrammable plants, Monstera is a must-have. Its big leaves are simply irresistible, especially when they are variegated. 

And let’s be honest now, who can say no to a big leaf? 

5. Air plants 

If you don’t have enough space for more plants, but you want to get more plants (been there), you can always opt for Tillandsias, commonly known as air plants. They can be placed almost anywhere and don’t require a lot of care. 

If you’re looking for creative ways to display your air plants, you’re in luck, because we’ve created an article exactly about that. Check it out! 

6. Pothos

Just like Monstera, Pothos is another must-have. It’s hard not to fall in love with its beautiful leaves, especially when we are talking about the Neon or Marble Queen varieties. 

7. Bird of paradise

Bird of paradise is definitely a catch. With it’s huge leaves and white or orange flowers that resemble a bird in flight, this plant is stunning enough to compel you to post it on Instagram (multiple times). 

Since it requires a bit more sun to bloom and flower, Bird of paradise has to be placed in a sunny spot and that will definitely enhance your pictures, especially during the golden hour. 

8. Snake Plants

Snake plants are another popular choice when it comes to houseplants. They are extremely easy to care for and don’t require a lot of attention. In fact, a lot of attention might kill them. 

Since they come in different shapes and forms, it’s impossible not to find the right one for your Instagram aesthetics. 

9. Fiddle Leaf Fig 

Fiddle leaf fig is the kind of plant you can offer as a gift to your best gardening friend. It is a bit pretentious and requires more attention, but it’s definitely worth it, since it can outgrow your house if it’s happy. 

Do you know what that means? Yes, more pictures for your Instagram! 

10. Pink Princess 

Let’s be honest on this one. Even the name, Pink Princess, sounds Instagram-worthy. Even if its leaves are not completely pink, the pink-green combo looks stunning. 

If you are not convinced by Philodendron Pink Princess, you can always opt for another philodendron variety, as they all look amazing and are quite easy to care for. 


Of course, there are so many plants that look stunning, so we can definitely say that any plant you choose for your Instagram page is the right one. If you feel like a plant should definitely be on this list, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’ll gladly add it!
