Home ownership is a bit like a funny joke from the 1970’s, it was super common and widespread back then and seemed like everyone would get it but fast forward to the present day and pretty well no one has any fucking clue what you’re talking about.
It’s not as if owning a house is some achievable goal either, we’re constantly told to cut down on expenses and save for a house yet we’re being told this by the people who could put down a $5K down payment and rush off and buy a mansion.
With new research coming from Realestate.com.au, it looks like over 20% of young Australians have resigned to the fact that they’ll never own a house and have turned towards house plants to fill that void.
Some of our favourite green friends are apparently String of Pearls, Devil’s Ivy, Succulents, Aloe Vera, Swiss Cheese, Jade, Cactus and Hanging Plants.
Not only have Google searches for house plants risen drastically in Australia over the last eight years, their popularity has exploded in other parts of the world such as America and Holland as well.
Perhaps the house plant revolution is just a ploy from evironmentalists to repair the O-zone layer? Whatever the reason, we aren’t complaining.
