At least it is sad for me. Maybe its because I feel like I don't like watching something die when I feel like I'm a healer, and a carer. So a little over a year ago I told my husband that I no longer wanted cut flowers, I would rather have a pretty potted flower or plant. Something living, something that I can care for and won't die.
With Valentine's coming up plus my birthday -hint hint Jer- here are my top five favorite beautiful potted plants that won't die on you a week after Valentine's.
Azalea-blooming indoor year long plant $16-$20
Kalanchoe-blooms from Oct to Mar $7-$10
Begonia-blooms year round
Gardenia- blooms on and off $20-$30
Orchid- blooms in the right environment $5-$10
Screams Zen. Everyone should have one. Unless you kill plants easy.
The one thing each plant has in common in this list is that they are easy to care for and do well in almost every environment. And plants make the air cleaner, and they are so much nicer to look at and last a lot longer than cut flowers!
Happy Valentines on Tuesday!
