When shopping for the right potted plant for mum, you can check with your local nursery, grocery store, flower shop and even online florists that offer flower delivery to your area.  The prices and quality of the plants will vary from one seller to the next and, with so many to choose from, it can require more thought that your average cut flower arrangement.

If you are wondering just which potted plant to buy for mum, there are some really helpful tips that you can use to help make your choice that much easier.  Firstly, understand your mother’s personality and personal preference.  Does your mother enjoy taking care of her potted beauties on a regular basis or does she lead a rather busy life?  Certain house plants require more attention and care than others so, a major factor that you need to consider is how much time your mother has every day to really care for the new plant.  If you know that mum has a selection of potted plants already, then you can be sure that she will enjoy receiving another one to brighten her home.

Different potted plants also prefer different conditions.  For instance, some plants prefer humid conditions while others do not.  Understand the conditions of your mother’s home and then research or consult with a professional to find out which plants suit these conditions best.  After gathering a few options, it’s time to do some more in depth research and find out the pros and cons of each one so that you can choose the very best for mum.

Another important choice that you will need to make is whether to buy an annual or perennial plant.  Annuals bloom once in their lifetime whereas perennials bloom again and again each season.  Annuals usually show off with a spectacular once-off floral display.  Perennials use their energy to grow and bloom so you might not have a fantastic first bloom but this will improve over the following seasons.
