While we were making this issue, we added two peace lilies, an Aglaonema silver bay, and a particularly handsome snake plant to our New York office. From where I sit, they immediately improved the vibe in the space where our East Coast team (optionally) works. It has been years since, as a culture, we hit peak Monstera and the term plantfluencer first left a bitter, leafy taste in our mouths. But, accelerated by a pandemic, plant life now has deep roots in our feeds, our homes, and our brains. With a simple reason: Having some greenery around feels good.
