According to the results, some of the most popular houseplants are cacti, orchids, aloe vera, basil, spider plants and peace lilies.
Outdoor plants have also gotten attention, with the most common being daffodils, roses, tulips, mint and hydrangea.
Many of the participants wished that they had more room for their newfound loves, but almost 80% believe that you can start gardening with whatever space you presently have.
