How much do we love indoor plants right now? Let me count the ways. Not only do our fave indoor plants make boring interiors shine, they require (close to) zero attention and they don’t break the bank, meaning you can buy all the succulents.
Because our Insta feed tells us that no stylish office, kitchen, living room or bedroom is complete without the inclusion of a fiddle leaf fig or rubber plant, we’ve tracked down where to buy the best indoor plants in Brisbane. Let the obsession continue.
The Saturday morning Rocklea Markets do a great trade in fresh produce, fresh bread and coffee, but did you know they are also killing it in the indoor plant game? Get in early to get the pick of the interesting cacti, pretty jade plants and fiddle leaf figs on offer from a range of vendors.
Mappins Nursery & Aquarium
Mappins Nursery & Aquarium, located conveniently close to the West End Markets, is the place to head for high quality indoor plants. Specialising in cacti and succulents, Mappins has some weird and wonderful options that will take your interiors game to the next level. If you’re game, the sculptural ‘Medusa’s Head’ cacti is a showstopper.
Brookfield Garden Centre
The Brookfield Garden Centre is one of the prettiest nurseries in Brisbane and offers a whole host of great indoor plants and gorgeous pots. But its biggest drawcard is that you can pair your plant shopping with brunch at the delicious Wild Canary café, less than 100 metres away.
When it comes to selecting indoor plants that cannot be killed even by the most amateur black thumb, Oxley Nursery has got you covered. From yellow leaf succulents to prosperity-bringing money plants (AKA jade plants) their drought-proof plant selection is on point.
Cottage Garden Nursery
Cottage Garden Nursery on Stanley Street in the Gabba is one of the cutest spots to shop for plants in town. With a beautiful selection of indoor plants, this could be the place to pick up your newest green baby with a variety of plants that can work inside. Once you’ve finished your shopping, reward yourself with a stop at cute café The Smug Fig next door.
The Oasis Nursery in Kelvin Grove is a green space to get absolutely lost in. Wander down the myriad of tranquil paths and who knows what you’ll come across. We love the amazing bonsai selection alongside the interesting variety of indoor plants.
This hip little Brisbane florist may not have the biggest selection of indoor plants on our list, but they make up for it in sheer coolness of plants. Cactus, succulents, and other photogenic foliage call this The Botanist home. Tucked into Bakery Lane, and right next door to I Heart Brownies, this is the ideal urban pit stop if you're looking for indoor plants in Brisbane.

On November 12, the Swift’s Sports Club in Ipswich will be home to the succulent and cacti sale of your dreams.
