What Your Favorite Houseplant Says About You


We’re not saying that potted plants are the new horoscope, but as the saying goes, “the way you do anything is the way you do everything.” Does your choice in houseplant reflect a bigger part of your personality? Read on to find out (or at least laugh at yourself a bit).

1. Ficus

 You stick to what you know. You buy the same shade of lipstick each time you finish a tube, will always watch just one more episode of Seinfeld, and know that if it ain’t broke, you don’t fix it.

2. Begonia

 You’re a romantic, and fully prescribe to the idea that nothing is complete (not a room, not an outfit) without a pop of color.

3. Monstera

 You enjoy a dramatic entrance, and own more leopard print than any of your friends.

4. Succulent

 You’re not a regular mom, you’re a cool mom. You always have your finger on the Pinterest app, and like to know what the kids are into these days (plus, you heard you can’t kill these, and that sealed the deal).

5. Sedum

 You’re a blogger, or you’re obsessed with blogs (likely both). You still secretly love the flower-like succulents a bit more than this trailing burro’s tail, but you just have to distinguish your brand a bit more, you know?

6. Aloe

 On the surface, you might appear prickly and standoffish, but once people get to know you, they appreciate the calming, soothing personality at your core.

7. Fern

 Your favorite TV show is Downton Abbey (and you really hope PBS commits to a series about the Victorian era next). You loved The Secret Garden as a kid, and always hoped you’d have one of your own one day.

8. Lemon Tree

 You splurged on a trip to Italy for your honeymoon and haven’t gotten the citrus tree-lined paths out of your head. There were lemons as big as your head, people!

9. Topiary

 Your junk drawer is divided with mini bins, categorized by item, and, frankly, junk-free. You’ve mastered the art of polished nails that stay chip-free for a week. And you don’t go anywhere without your trusty day planner.

10. Fake

 You live by the mantra “perfect is the enemy of the good enough.” You often fall in love with things simply just because they’re pretty (like that elegant bottle of perfume you never actually wear), and you are not ashamed. And you’re just really busy, OK?
