Fresh flowers are a well-known popular gift for all occasions including birthdays, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and even as housewarming presents. That said, sometimes we want to give a gift that will last longer than a few weeks. This is what makes potted plants such an excellent option. They offer the natural beauty of a fresh flower gift, but they last that much longer! When sending a plant, however, it’s important for you to make the appropriate choice. Not only do you want a beauty, but you want something that will be easy to take care of.
The African Violet is a popular potted plant and is found in many homes around the world. They are one of the easiest of all potted plants to care for. They are also known to bloom for extended periods of time. That said, even when not in bloom, these plants still add beauty to the room.
If you are looking for something particularly luxurious and elegant, you can’t go wrong with an orchid. There are several types of orchids available today and some people think that they are difficult to maintain. This is not entirely true, however. There are some types of orchids that require very special care. There are also those that do not require as much care and they will blow you away with their amazing blooms. Make sure that the orchid you choose is one of the hardy varieties that will not require constant attention.
Anthuriums are also a lovely gift if you are looking for something with a tropical appeal. Like other tropical plants, anthuriums love warmer environments with a good dose of humidity. The soil should be moist but not too wet. You can also spray the plant with some fresh water from time to time for extra humidity.
Roses are a popular cut flower and the potted varieties are just as popular. There are a number of colours from which to choose which is always a bonus because you can select a colour that suits the recipient. These plants will need enough sun, regular watering, and they may require pruning from time to time to encourage growth.
Some potted plants do not bloom but this does not make them any less beautiful. In addition, there are some potted plants with relatively short bloom cycles. Some plants help improve air quality by removing certain toxins so, if this is something that concerns you, look for plants that will help purify the air while decorating the room. If, for whatever reason, the recipient has not had much luck caring for plants, you could opt for a succulent as your safest bet.
