Is your obsession with houseplants slowly draining your wallet? It doesn’t have to anymore—pricey greenhouses are no longer your only option for purchasing plants. Online retailers have been selling high-quality houseplants at record-low prices.

Expensive plants can't squash your indoor gardening dreams anymore—now, you can decorate with all of the houseplants your heart desires, guilt-free. Instead of scrounging for $40 to buy a small croton plant, pay less than half of that. We're thrilled that retailers like Etsy and Amazon are filling their inventory with more affordable houseplants (we're looking at you, Amazon plant store).

Check out the top bargains that have us clearing our shelves to make room for new green friends.
