WHY PLANTS ARE THE BEST GIFT
Plants are more than the sum of their leaves, stems, fronds and roots. They serve as a reminder of the wild beauty of nature we long for beyond the confines of our homes and offices. Plants' simplicity, steady growth, and relatively low maintenance (especially when compared to pets) make them popular with everyone who gets them.
FOR THE LOVE OF PLANTS
Put simply, plants are good for you. Potted but never passive, they happily absorb water and sunlight, quietly attracting attention from anywhere in the room, standing tall and majestic by your sofa, and cascading majestically. on the side of your bookshelf or scattered on your kitchen cabinets. Plants tell stories, keep secrets, survive harrowing moves around town and country, endure boisterous watering, cloudy days and even sub-zero temperatures with grace and style. (I'm looking at you, Golden Pothos). Many of us are deeply intimidated by the prospect of tending plants when the reality is often as simple as a calendar reminder on our phones and a splash of water once a week.
What plants give us in return is priceless: peace and atmosphere in our home, a comforting reminder to slow down, and appreciation for the little things.
FLOWERS ARE FOR NOW, BUT PLANTS ARE FOREVER
Though popular gifts for our parents' generation, bouquets of flowers stand in contrast to houseplants as old-fashioned icons of impulsiveness, indulgent waste, or desperate tickets out of the house. It's no wonder millennials love houseplants because of their evergreen prefer power. Not only are they hardy, but the plants are capable of reproduction.
