Sure, there's something delightful about going to your local nursery, perusing all the lush, green plants and flowers to choose from—it really can't be beat. But sometimes you just want to fill your home with plants and don't have time to shop for them in person, or easy transportation to bring all your new plant friends back with you. That's where the internet comes in, because no, you don't have to buy your plants in person, and yes, there are tons of online resources to not only help you find the right plants for you, but to also have them delivered directly to your door.
Prospective plant parents and houseplant pros, these are some of the best places out there to buy plants online from the old, reliable staples to a few stores that might surprise you (some are even majorly budget-friendly!). Whether you're looking for a handful of air plants or a giant fiddle leaf fig tree, you're sure to find them at one of these stores, without ever leaving your house.
