Cacti and succulents for the home is an interior design trend that has been going on for years now, especially since they are some of the most popular and charismatic plants that appear in private collections around the world. This rise in popularity was further fueled by the revival of mid-century design elements in home furnishings and accessories, so architectural plants (like cactus) are embraced once again.

The best part? Cacti and succulents are one of the most low-maintenance of all indoor plants, with the ability to survive in all types of habitats; especially, in arid or semi-arid parts of the world.

These plants also suit a variety of interior design styles, from minimalistic, contemporary interiors to more rustic styles like the jungalow trend. When designing your interiors, you can choose to pair them with either natural and woven elements or mix them with monochromatic, metallics, bold, or neutral colour schemes — it’s all up to one’s preference.

Alternatively, cacti and succulents are also making their way out of indoor spaces and into home gardens or balconies, resulting in an edgy and architecturally-driven twist to the traditional home garden.
