I have the complete opposite of a green thumb…

I struggle with plants… I have even managed to kill succulents… I still can’t figure out what happened… maybe I over watered them…

This past year, I have been trying to up my plant game. I started with a couple of easy-care plants last summer and I am happy to report they are still alive!!! Woohoo!

I have to admit, plants in the home are sort of addictive and now I am trying to add plants and greenery in every room of the home.

With that, comes the need for lots of styles of planters and plant stands!

Ikea hacks are the best – they are simple, cheap and can be made to look as chic as you want. It goes for plant stands and hanging planters too!

Here is a collection of some of my favorite Ikea Plant hacks!

  1. So many great ideas! I’ve had houseplants for as long as I’ve had my own place. Fewer today but they are a necessity in a house (IMO) and displaying them beautifully is important.

    I love IKEA faux plants because then I can have greenery in the house but not worry about under-watering. Mine never get over-watered LOL
