More and more people these days are opting to become “plant parents” and adopting different types of plants and caring for them either in gardens or in their apartments (especially for people who live in urban areas and have no garden space). Most people replace pets with plants because plants are low maintenance as opposed to pets that require medical attention.

You might know a few plant parents or might even be one yourself, and as any plant parent would tell you, it is hard to keep plant babies alive, especially if you go into plant keeping without understanding the needs of the different types of plants.

When you are getting a gift for someone who enjoys gardening and owns plants, you should consider how practical the gifts you are getting them will be. If they are a beginner and relatively new to plant keeping, then getting them electronic gifts that enhance plant growth might be the best thing for them. Gardening is a hobby that most people get better at the more involved they become, and the more time they invest in it.

The most obvious gift to get plant lovers is perhaps, Plants. Anyone who enjoys plants will appreciate a new addition at any time. So what’s the best plant to give to a plant lover, you may wonder. Well, that solely depends on what kinds of plants the person is interested in. However, here are some plants that are popular plant gift ideas for plant lovers

PLANTS TO GIVE AS A HOUSEWARMING GIFT

ORCHIDS: They make excellent house warming gifts because of their beautiful pearly white petals and long green stems. When in full bloom, an orchid will add a beautifully pleasing aesthetic to any room it is planted in. They are also easy to take care of, which is an added bonus for people who have other obligations that require their time.

SUCCULENTS: They make perfect gifts for cactus lovers. Succulents are easy to take care of, they do not require as much attention as other plants, and they grow relatively small, so they do not take up space and are perfect for indoor plants.

JASMINE: Its fragrant flowers make Jasmine the perfect gift for house warming. The way it beautifully cascades downward and around itself will transform any room into a magical wonderland.

PLANTS FOR CHRISTMAS PRESENTS

AMARYLLIS: A plant that blooms in winter and is dormant in all other seasons surely is the ultimate plant gift for the holidays. The plant has flowers in red, white, and a cross between the two, which sometimes looks pink and other times, it looks like red with white stripes around it. An Amaryllis bulb is the perfect gift for Christmas for a plant lover, as it will become their project for the next 7-10 weeks. 

PAPERWHITES: These are also great for Christmas gifting because they also bloom in the winter. Their long stems and frilly white petals make for a beautiful plant to give as a gift. You can either give it as a bulb or as a fully bloomed plant.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What are the benefits of having indoor plants (if any)?

Aside from the very obvious fact that plants inside the house look absolutely beautiful and have the capacity to transform the way a room looks and feels, plants have the capacity to boost and lift your mood. Additionally, plants are also known to clean the air around you allowing you to breathe non-toxic air and increasing the flow of oxygen in your apartment.

Is there a limit on how many plants one can have in a room?

There is no limit (by law) that requires you to have a specific number of plants in your room, however, too much of anything is good for nothing. Remember to keep your plant at a minimum of 10 plants per room, that way you can also have room for other things in your life and you do not have to center your life around your plant babies.

CONCLUSION

Gardening is a time-consuming hobby that requires precision and patience in its execution. Getting a gift for someone who loves plants should be based on how useful they are going to find the gift, and in some cases, if the gift is going to make them laugh or smile or remind them of their plant baby all the time. Whatever the case, remember to always pick out gifts with their interest at heart; it will show that you care about them and their hobby which is a great part of their life.
