Animals are the new kids, as there is a meme going around on internet that says so despite more people deciding to have no children. That will make plants new pets. They don’t put as much responsibility on one person like an animal or a child would, but at the same time it can bring joy to see their growth and change before somebody sees them.
The growing of plants is a big deal during the Pandemic, and many communities on the internet where people can share their tips or achievements. r/houseplant is a large community that caters to home plants on the internet and it has over 900k members. The photos of plants shared here were collected by Readingaro.
