New Houseplant Report Available

The consumer demand for houseplants has rapidly increased in recent years and is still growing. As retailers find more consumers coming through their doors looking for foliage plants and succulents, it’s important for them to be knowledgeable on what consumers are struggling with and asking about.

The GrowIt! 2020 Houseplant Report is designed to help the green industry better understand this trend. The report focuses on consumer data aggregated from the interactions of almost 900,000 consumers on the GrowIt! App, as well as the analysis of GrowIt!’s National Indoor Plant Week survey, which yielded over 10,000 responses.

TPIE has underwritten this report to make it free for everyone. Though TPIE was not involved in any of the collection of data, analysis of the report or expression of the trends, they feel that this information is important for all of those involved in the indoor plant industry.

Thinking through how a company might best leverage the information in this report to build their houseplant category, sell more plants or begin a program, all roads lead to TPIE. Every insight in this report can be amplified by attending TPIE, which takes place January 22-24, 2020, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

“Having consumer data specific to indoor plants is a welcome resource to our industry,” said Linda Adams, TPIE Show Manager. “From an insider’s perspective, we’ve always known the value of houseplants and promoted them based on their beauty and benefits, yet learning the specific plant-related preferences and concerns of houseplant buyers will help everyone serve the consumer better and sell more plants.”
