Venus Fly Trap

Iowa, Kentucky, Minnesota, Oregon & South Dakota

All over the map, the Venus fly trap is the number-one intrigue of five states, three of which sit densely together in northern territory. Perhaps something’s in the air in Minnesota, Iowa and South Dakota causing the people to nurture the most carnivorous of the houseplants. (Should we be worried?)

District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, New Jersey, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, Utah, Virginia & West Virginia

The third most popular houseplant in the States, the monstera plant lives on in 10 states. With large, tropical leaves, this plant brings beachy essence – so it’s no wonder all the states that prefer it line the coast.

Florida & Hawaii

Florida and Hawaii will have you know that orchids are the best houseplants! For two states that are famous for their vacation destinations, a preference for this floral plant proves that aesthetics don’t stop once you come home.

Devil's Ivy

Alaska, Nevada & Wyoming

Three states that have seemingly little in common come together to form the best kind of alliance: the houseplant alliance! If the residents of Alaska, Nevada and Wyoming are at all reflective of their houseplant choice, then it’s safe to say these are a laidback and easy-to-care-for people!

Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Washington & Wisconsin
