10 Instagram Captions to Use for Beautiful Plant Photos

Plants make life—and Instagram—more beautiful.

Even if you don't have a green thumb, nature offers some pretty amazing photo ops. Just picture gardens, wildflowers and bouquets, for example. As much as your followers love to see you, most probably wouldn't mind seeing a little flora in their feed.

Of course, taking dazzling pictures of plants is only half the challenge. Before posting, you also need to come up with an appropriate caption. Like, say, a quote about plants perhaps? Oh, you've come to the right place.
