From money trees to fluffy ferns, cacti to bonsai, SoGlos rounds up some of the best places to pick up house plants in the region.

As well as helping to reduce stress and fatigue, purifying the air, sharpening focus and brightening up corners and shelves, plants make excellent additions to indoor spaces.
