1. Bloombox Club

British company Bloombox Club wants to help turn your home into a green oasis. We recommend their Philodendron Xanadu: its name means ‘Winterborn,’ and its arrow-shaped leaves give it a stately flourish.

Or for something a little smaller, we love the Philodendron Scandens, otherwise known as the “Green Sweetheart Plant.” Other suggestions include this atmosphere-setting String of Pearls and this small-but-mighty Areca Palm.

2. Royal Horticultural Society

RHS is the world’s leading gardening charity, striving to enrich communities through greenery and growth. If you want to support their wonderful organization and also take home an equally wonderful plant, why not select their Monstera Deliciosa? Named for the fact that its leaves resemble slices of swiss cheese, this is the perfect plant to give as a gift.
