Today, I read in May’s Elle Decoration, Cactus is “a plant of the moment”. Wonder why are cacti so on-trend now?

They are an easy-maintenance option for those who constantly forget to water their plants- they are easy to grow, and don’t require regular watering. They need a lot of sun though, so they’re perfect for a window sill. They come in different shapes and sizes, so you can actually create an interesting window sill display, varying the sizes and styles of both cacti and pots:

If you’re up for something a bit more challenging, why not try to plant some flowers and bring a bit more outdoors in? Modern living can be very busy and fast-paced, so a bit of greenery and nature inside will surely have a relaxing and calming effect on you.

I absolutely love these small terracotta planters, as you can paint them or leave them as they are-they look cute either way. You can find them in different sizes in Homebase
