Spending more time at home amid the pandemic has resulted in many of us finding new hobbies. We've even begun to explore our hidden talents—yes, TikTok counts! 

Another interesting rise in popularity during these times has been the unexplainable urge to make new friends. While some turned to social media to build long-lasting bonds, others decided to carve out space in their homes for plants.

Okay, we'll be the first to admit that we may have low-key gotten a bit out of control with our new additions. However, the need for oxygen in the home is a healthy trade-off. Right? 

We're not the only ones that borderline turned our homes into greenhouses. According to NBCNews, many Americans turned to houseplant for comfort.
