People Are Taking Epic 'Family Portraits' With Their Plants That Have Us Green With Envy

Plant people are the modern day "crazy cat ladies" of yesteryear. I don't mean this in a demeaning way at all, it's just a fact of life. If you've ever got down to chatting with a plant person, you'll know that they refer to their plants as their "plant babies." And if you've ever had the chance to own plants, you'll know why. My mother decided to take it upon herself to give my pothos a haircut, and yes, it did bring me to tears.

Not only does caring for plants bring a buried parenting instinct out that you never thought you'd have, but they're also extremely difficult to not fill your space with, which is why there is a trend going around social media platforms that sees people taking epic family portraits with their plant collection.

Some people collect teacups, coins, and shot glasses, while others collect plants.

And yes, you do become a plant parent once you start owning plants. They need your careful attention, just like a child does.

Obviously, this means that your plant collection becomes one big happy family.

Like most families, this means a family portrait is in order, which is exactly what's happening on social media.
