Did you know that the Egyptians made the first flower pot in the 1700s to carry plants securely from one location to another? Thereafter, several civilizations adopted the same method, but it was only the Victorian era that introduced the concept of house plants. Fast forward to the 21st century, and we not only love our indoor plants, but we’ve also seen a rise in plant moms, plantfluencers and urban gardening enthusiasts.
