Miami, Fl. (PRWEB) February 10, 2015
This Valentine’s Day, forget a traditional gift and choose something that will last longer than the weekend: an exotic houseplant. When shopping for a loved one, say “I Love You” with a plant to perfectly complement an exceptional personality.
Showcase a dreamy houseplant in a bold container for a look that will have the recipient starry-eyed or mix and match complementary plants for that extra “wow.”
“A colorful houseplant is a beautiful addition to any home and will remind loved ones of how special they are for months or even years to come,” says Justin Hancock, plant expert at Costa Farms. “You can show your love to more than just your sweetheart. Recognize your mother, sister, grandparents or anyone you care about.”
Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a few of these romantic gift ideas. Match a personality to a plant and start making plans for dinner.
For the Bold and Beautiful
A Red Aglaonema with its bold colors and showy leaves is perfect for someone daring and knows how to dazzle. Streaked with seasonal shades of bright red and pink, Red Aglaonema is a long-lasting choice. This plant is one of the easiest of all houseplants to grow and your loved one can enjoy it for years. It’s also the perfect home-décor accent to make a long lasting statement as beautiful as they are.
Red Aglaonema grows anywhere in low or bright light. It’s not fussy about watering; give it a splash when the top inch or two of the potting mix dries.
For the Sophisticated and Stylish
Choose a romantic orchid for someone elegant and polished. This stunning plant is utterly chic. Its slender stems are topped with exquisite blooms that can last more than six weeks and are available in a variety of stylish colors including pink, purple, white, yellow and more.
These orchids thrive in the same conditions as most houseplants and are a lot easier to care for than they look. Keep your moth orchid in a low- or medium-light spot (out of too much hot sun) and water when the moss dries out.
For the mysterious and glamorous
Anthurium may be the perfect gift for someone with a flair for the exotic and unexpected. This show-stopping plant has glossy heart-shaped leaves and tropical-looking flowers. The blooms appear in gorgeous shades of red and pink, as well as white, purple, orange and other romantic tones. Anthurium stands out of the crowd and blooms on and off all year. Its flowers will last for months under the right conditions. This exotic plant loves warmth and humidity.
