6 Houseplants to Gift for Valentine’s Day

This Valentine’s Day, instead of flowers, candy, and chocolate, give a gift that will last! Houseplants are a great way to show someone you care as they’ll be reminded of you the whole year through. 

While there are thousands of options out there to choose from, we’ve selected our top six favorite houseplants to gift for Valentine’s Day below! 

Heartleaf Philodendron 

With its heart-shaped leaves and vivid green color, this houseplant is a great choice for the person you love! Your sweetheart doesn’t have to have a green thumb to take care of it either. The Heartleaf Philodendron is easy to grow indoors. It only needs a small pot and moderate to bright light.

String of Hearts 

You’ve probably seen the String of Pearls succulent before, but did you know that there’s a String of Hearts succulent that offers a similar, gorgeous trailing leaf effect? Also known as ceropegia woodii, this beautiful plant has pale green, heart-shaped leaves. It can be grown indoors or out, as long as it doesn’t get direct sunlight.

Hoya Heart 

At first glance, the unusual Hoya Plant might seem like it’s not even real. Commonly sold as just a single leaf cutting in some soil, this heart-shaped plant can happily live in a small pot for years to come. Although it’s not a succulent, it’s similarly hardy. Its preference for moderate temperatures and light makes it a great choice for an indoor plant. Plus, it’s incredibly cute!

Bleeding Heart 

If you’re looking for a plant with a bit more color, check out the Bleeding Heart plant. With its bright white or pink heart-shaped flowers, the Bleeding Heart is a great choice for a Valentine’s Day gift. While they’re often grown outside, the Bleeding Heart can be happy indoors if kept in an area with bright, indirect light. Be aware though that this plant experiences periods of dormancy.

Heart Ferns 

Ferns are a great indoor plant choice. The Heart Fern would make an ideal gift for someone you love. With big, leathery green leaves and no flowers, this plant prefers low light, warm temperatures, and high humidity. Despite this, it’s a fairly low-maintenance plant that your loved one will enjoy taking care of.

Persian Cyclamen 

The final plant on our Valentine’s Day gift list is the Persian Cyclamen. This tropical plant has pretty, pink flowers and heart-shaped green leaves. Its flowers can also come in shades of purple, red, and white. After it blooms, this plant will go into a dormant state, but you’ll still have the beautiful leaves to enjoy until it’s time for the plant to bloom again.
