Part of what makes Seattle a beautiful place to live is the abundance of greenery, but we can’t be out in it all the time. So you might be thinking of how to bring all that gorgeous foliage inside, or how to increase your current indoor forest. While a little leafy friend is always a good idea, houseplants are having a real moment right now, because nothing brightens up a place like a little plant life.
Fortunately, Seattle is full of establishments that specialize in exactly this kind of thing, from houseplant-specific stores to nurseries with a full selection of greenery (some that you might even be able to bring inside in a pot). All are staffed by locals that can give you guidance on what plants you’re going to want—especially key in a locale known for a weird relationship with sun—and what’s realistic for you, maintenance wise. (It’s also probably good to check if there are any interactions with any four-legged roomies you might have, but the ASPCA is a fine resource for that.)
