Plants in Pop Culture (Suits Edition)
Welcome to the first edition of Plants in Pop Culture. Have you ever noticed how many houseplants are splattered across various scenes in the shows you watch? Before our plant obsession took off, those plants might as well not have been there. Yet lately, it's become a sort of I spy game as we try to spot as many of my favorite plants as we can. You might be surprised at just how many there are if you simply start paying attention.
In the rest of this article, we're going to be showing an array of shots from our favorite TV show, Suits. We've been faithfully hunting for a Monstera throughout the show (we could have sworn we saw one the first time we watched the show), so if you find it, let us know in the comments below and we'll send some plant stickers your way.
Before we get into the pictures, let's analyze how Suits does with their plants.
Suits Plant Rating
Was suits consistent with the usage of their plants? Did plants randomly change from episode to episode?
Overall, Suits did a very god job with plant consistency. Plants generally stayed the same from episode to episode, though we noticed that certain plants in their offices would come and go. We grant that this may not be an inconsistency, but can be easily explained with the fact that people change and move their plants. We noticed quite a few plants that made appearance after appearance throughout the seasons.
We were slightly disappointed with the lack of variety in houseplants through the seasons. Being Monstera obsessed ourselves, we were sad to see a distinct lack of Monsteras. The omission is understandable however, as the earlier seasons of Suits aired long before Monsteras skyrocketed in popularity. We saw a good amount of flowers and orchids, and kept our eyes peeled for the household favorites such as the snake plant or the spider plant. It wasn't easy to identify certain plants, with the background often out of focus or panning away quickly, but we think we laid our eyes on a few of them.
Storyline Incorporation: 2/10
Most popular shows are going to rank low in this category. After all, houseplants aren't often the focus or even mentioned in mainstream media. The only mentions we can recall are the occasional references to flowers, and the gift of roses for special occasions.
We enjoyed the use of houseplants around the office and homes for decor, and found it challenging yet not impossible to spot the various houseplants throughout the episodes.
Without further ado, let's get into the plants in Suits.
Seen throughout the show, we've had a lot of trouble identifying this guy. If you have any idea, please let us know in the comments below.
Pothos and an aloe.
Fiddle-leaf fig. What a beauty.

Ficus benjamina (weeping fig).
