As an increasing number of millennials are sprouting green fingers, obsessing over houseplants is no longer a thing of our parent's generation.

If you're looking to spruce up your space with some green, here are some six modern plant shops to check out.

1. Tumbleweed Plants

The cosy, trendy shop offers a wide selection of houseplants, led by their knowledge of interior design.

Besides plants, they also have a wide range of planters, hanging pots, plant stands and gardening tools such as fertiliser (S$15) and Potting Mix (S$8 that are available on their online store.

For the plants itself, however, you'll have to drop by their physical space in Tiong Bahru.
