Like fashion versus the clothing itself, trends come and go but the plant remains. So, when it’s time to fill your shop, which plants do you choose? Do you go on safe with the white Phalaenopsis and pink Kalanchoe or do you choose a hip assortment according to the trends of the moment? It’s always good to have a basic assortment of plants in your store. They are often timeless, and, with the right accessories, you can still make them stand out.
But why not try out a few of the latest trends? Think of a beautiful pink Caladium or an Alocasia Zebrina–perfect for the Bohemian trend you see so often nowadays. Put them in a simple terracotta pot and you suddenly have a showcase. How about a peach begonia? Ideal for any warm farmhouse interior, a beautiful brown pot does wonders.
