Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. If you are already running out of unique gift ideas, and you think that regular flowers like roses and tulips are too mainstream nowadays, you might want to consider gifting your loved ones with succulent plant bouquets or rosettes in lovable pots this 14th.
Last year, we discussed the advantages of giving succulent plants instead of regular flowers on Valentine’s Day, so now, let’s talk about the succulent-themed gifts that you can give this time of the year.
1. String of Hearts
It’s the day of love, so one of the symbols you will most likely see this February 14 is hearts. As its name implies, this succulent plant resembles hearts that are naturally sewn together.
Also known as Ceropegia woodii, the plant has heart-shaped leaves in different hues of green and pink. It is actually a hanging houseplant so it has the tendency to crawl all over the place. It is better if you take cuttings of its vines and arrange them in a small pot if you are planning on gifting it so that it will appear presentable.
2. Moonstones Pachyphytum
This is one of the cutest succulents out there. It comes with chubby, pink-colored leaves. The leaves are arranged naturally to make the succulent resemble a flower. Between the winter and early spring, the plant also sprouts dark pink, bell-shaped flowers providing its added beauty.
3. Aeonium Mardi Gras
Named after the Carnival event, this rosette comes in vibrant color. Its leaves commonly come in red with contrasting yellow highlights as they get nearer the plant’s core. The color combination of the plant will surely help elevate the joyous mood of the occasion.
4. Echeveria Agavoides Lipstick
This is a nice alternative for tulips with sharp petals. The leaves of this succulent usually come in bright green with red tips. As an added flavor to its look, the plant grows pink to red bell-shaped flowers with yellow accents on their ends between spring and late summer.
5. Assorted Variety
If you want to go all out this Valentine’s and save yourself of all the trouble of repotting and arranging your succulent gift, why not just go for the Beautiful Assorted Variety Succulents?
The product comes with 64 decorative succulent plants with two of each kind. These are carefully packaged in two-inch nursery pots. Therefore, all you have to do is purchase it, wait for its delivery, and then present it to your loved ones.
This can be gifted to your partner, but since it comes with plenty of samples, you can also set aside some of the plants in the package for multiple recipients such as your family members, friends, neighbors or acquaintances.
Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone
There are many other succulents that have not made it on this list, but these tips should help you start when deciding what to give the people who mean a lot to you on this day of love. Have a great time, everyone!
