Succulents and air plants are the darlings of the botanical world at the moment, and now there's a shop specializing in the trendy greenery on Queen St. E.

Succuterra, which started out as an online venture, has become a full-fledged brick-and-mortar boutique stocking succulents, terrariums, cacti and more stylish, Instagram-ready plants. 

Owners Jay Li and Lauren McPherson source and hand-pick the plants that are displayed on cinder blocks and in rustic wooden boxes. At Succuterra you can pick and choose a stand-alone decor piece or take home a variety pack to arrange as a bundle. The shop offers discounts on bulk buys.

Whether your small space won't allow for a full garden or you're looking to add a touch of green to your home, succulents and air plants are an easy way to bring your home to life. Low maintenance and virtually foolproof, these tiny houseplant alternatives come in a wide range of shapes and sizes and require very little care in the way of watering and pruning, making them ideal even for the clumsiest green thumbs.

Succuterra ships coast to coast to all provinces across Canada, and all of its plants come with a 14-day happiness guarantee allowing you to return if you're not content with its condition.

Succuterra is located at 1596 Queen St. E or go check them out online at
