Potted Plants to Give Your Significant Other (Instead of Flowers)

These tiny plants are just as adorable as roses.


Surprising your loved one with a bouquet on Valentine's Day never gets old. But if you want to switch things up this year, or you're simply looking for a more practical gift idea, why not give your lover a plant baby to take care of instead?

There are lots of houseplants that are just as adorable as flowers—and when taken care of, they can even last much longer!

3. Valentines Bag of 4 Fittonia, P2,000, TERRA 

For P2,000, you can give your partner these four potted fittonia plants—each of which already comes with a catch plate. 


Perfect for bathrooms, fittonia—or otherwise known as "nerve" plant—thrives in humid environments. According to The Spruce, it is also "sensitive to strong, direct sunlight and will quickly suffer from leaf burn." 

4. Dwarf Snake Plant, PLANT HOME PH 

You can't go wrong with giving someone a snake plant. Known for being one of the toughest plants out there, it can survive in low-light areas, and it's drought-tolerant, too! 


According to Almanac, this indoor plant does "not tolerate soggy soil well; they tend to develop root rot," so it's best to let its soil dry out before watering. 

5. Heartleaf Philodendron, SPRUCE PLANT SHOP 

As its name suggests, this adorable hanging plant has glossy leaves shaped like a heart. Plant parents love it because it could easily thrive indoors


6. Echeveria Minima, P300, TERRA 

Instead of a bouquet, why not surprise your loved one with this cute succulent that looks like a flower?
