It's that time of year again where we celebrate the one who has done so much for us. Mother's day is a special day to show our moms or mother figures how much we appreciate them. If you're looking for the perfect gift, why not consider getting a plant? Plants are a great way to show your mom that you care, and they make wonderful mother's day gifts. In this blog post, we will share five plants that are bound to make mama smile!
Why plants make great gifts for Mother's Day
Sure, you could get your mom a bouquet of flowers for Mother's Day. But why not go the extra mile and get her a plant instead? Plants are always in bloom, making them a bright and cheerful addition to any room. Plus, they're a sweet lil reminder that life is always growing and evolving. So really, what could be a more perfect gift for the unparalleled figure in your life? Whether she's a green thumb or not, your mom is sure to appreciate this unique and thoughtful gift.
Can you ship houseplants?
We get that it can be scary to ship a plant for the first time. But with our specially designed boxes, your green amigos will arrive in the most perfect condition. We also make sure that you only get the quality of plants that you'd pick yourself. We only ship plants to someone's home, when we would feel comfortable getting the plant ourselves. This means that you get the best quality plant, delivered to your home!
The first plant on our list is the olive tree. Olive trees are a symbol of peace and healing, making them a perfect gift for your mom. These plants are also known to be very low maintenance, so your mom won't have to put in a lot of work to keep them alive.
Olive trees are a popular choice for plants, as they are easy to care for and have a long lifespan. However, there is one downside to olive trees - they are not very good at producing olives. Most olive trees in the wild are male and do not produce fruit at all. The only way to get olives from an olive tree is to plant a female tree, which is often difficult to find. However, there is one upside to this - since olive trees do not produce fruit, they make great mother's day gifts! If you're looking for a plant that will last longer than a bouquet, an olive tree is a perfect choice.
Nanouk (Tradescantia Nanouk)
If you're looking for a plant that's both stylish and low-maintenance, the Nanouk is a great option. Also known as the Tradescantia Nanouk, this plant is known for its vibrant purple leaves. The Nanouk is a relatively easy plant to care for, making it a great choice for beginner gardeners or busy moms. However, it does require bright indirect sunlight and regular watering to keep it looking its best. With its striking foliage and easy care requirements, the Nanouk makes an excellent Mother's Day gift.
A fun fact about the Nanouk is that it's not a plant! The Nanouk is a member of the spiderwort family, which is a group of flowering plants. However, the Nanouk does not produce flowers, which is why it's often mistaken for a plant. Despite this, the Nanouk makes a beautiful and unique addition to any home or garden.
The Pothos is another great option for beginner gardeners or busy moms. These plants are known for their ability to thrive in low-light conditions, making them perfect for rooms with little natural light. Pothos also don't require much watering, so they're easy to care for even if you're forgetful. With its hardy nature and low maintenance requirements, the Pothos makes an ideal Mother's Day gift.
Did you know that the photos plant is several different plants? The Pothos is a member of the Araceae family, which includes many different species of plants. However, the most common type of Pothos is the Epipremnum aureum or golden pothos. This plant is native to the Solomon Islands, but it can now be found all over the world
If you're looking for a plant that's both romantic and low-maintenance, the Heartleaf Hoya (XS) is a great option. Also known as the Wax Plant or Porcelain Flower, the Hoya Heart is native to Southeast Asia. These plants are known for their heart-shaped leaves and their ability to thrive in low-light conditions. The Hoya Heart is a relatively easy plant to care for, making it an ideal Mother's Day gift.
A fun fact about the Hoya Heart is that it's not actually a heart! The Hoya Kerrii is named after its discoverer, Irish botanist Robert Wight. Wight discovered this plant in 1823 while he was working in India. The Hoya Kerrii is the national flower of Thailand and is often given as a symbol of love.
