Plot all pandas dataframe columns separately

Pandas subplots=True will arange the axes in a single column.

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import pandas as pd

df = pd.DataFrame(np.random.rand(7,20))

Here, tight_layout isn’t applied, because the figure is too small to arange the axes nicely. One can use a bigger figure (figsize=(...)) though.

In order to have the axes on a grid, one can use the layout parameter, e.g.

df.plot(subplots=True, layout=(4,5))

enter image description here

The same can be achieved if creating the axes via plt.subplots()

fig, axes = plt.subplots(nrows=4, ncols=5)
df.plot(subplots=True, ax=axes)
