In case you haven't noticed, we're a bit
obsessed with plants here at Refinery29. To us, adding a touch of nature is one of the easiest ways to brighten up a room. We're firm believers that a bit of leafy shrub will help trick the eye into thinking that a space is much bigger than it actually is. Plus, green is such a soothing color.
You don't necessarily have to hit up your nearest florist or plant nursery to curate a rad indoor forest: In our never ending quest to develop a green thumb, a few excellent online plant shops have landed on our radar. Click ahead for seven stylish emporiums that will deliver the trendiest greenery to your doorstep. Now it's up to you to figure out how to
keep them alive.

The Sill We just can't get enough of The Sill's trendy aesthetic. The startup's highly Instagrammable brick-and-mortar store on the Lower East Side offers an Instagram-worthy curation of succulents, ferns, and aloe vera, and the website is equally packed with leafy goodness. Another major feature we keep coming back for? The site has a wide selection of cute planters in a variety of colors.

Geo-Fleur We've been eyeing this London-based indoor plant brand's collection of chic perennials — ranging from asparagus ferns to rare " Swiss cheese plants" — for some time now. Fortunately, we've found a workaround to get these plants stateside: The brand is stocked at Trouva, an online boutique that ships to the U.S. for $16.76.
