Cactus Plants

If you are looking for a plant that will be easy to care for, cactus plants are a great option. Cacti are flowering plants that grow in dry climates, and they require little water or attention. They can live indoors or out, so they make great gifts for anyone who wants to try their hand at gardening–especially if that person doesn’t have much experience with plants!

Cacti come in all shapes, sizes and colors (except blue). Some varieties have spines while others do not; some are tall while others stay short; some have long stems while others bloom from the top of the plant instead of having flowers growing directly off its sides or bottom surface area like most other flowering plants do…you get the idea: there’s something here for everyone!

So, if you are shopping for a gift and need something that is easy to care for, consider a cactus plant. It is a great way to add some green to your loved one’s life!


Succulents are a great option for gifts because they are easy to care for and can be grown in hanging baskets, containers, or just about any spot in your home. Succulents are drought tolerant (so you do not have to water them as often), which makes them perfect for those who are busy or forgetful. They also come in so many different shapes and sizes that there’s sure to be one that fits the style of the person receiving it! We have a wonderful selection of succulents and if you are giving succulents as a gift, we make sure to include instructions on how often and how much water the recipient should give it.

Indoor Flowering Plants

Indoor flowering plants are a great choice for back-to-school gifts. These plants have a long lifespan, so they can last for years and years. Indoor flowering plants also require little attention, so they are easy to care for. Not only are indoor flowering plants great for students, but they are also a wonderful gift for teachers. Flowering plants will brighten up any classroom and create a more welcoming environment. Flowering plants also make great gifts for office workers. Indoor flowering plants are a great way to brighten up an office and create a more welcoming environment. Flowering plants can be kept on desks or in common areas, like break rooms and lobbies.

Indoor flowering plants are also great gifts for homeowners.  Flowering plants are especially popular during the fall and winter months when they can add some color to rooms that may otherwise be bleak and boring. If you are looking for a gift that is easy on the eyes and budget, then indoor flowering plants are the perfect solution. Flowering plants are available in a variety of sizes, shapes, colors and styles. There are plenty of options to choose from so you can find something that suits any home or office decor.


Orchids are a great gift for teachers, students and parents. They are easy to care for and come in many varieties. Orchid plants are the perfect way to say “I love you” without saying it at all. Orchids have been cultivated for thousands of years, making them one of the oldest flowers still grown today. There are over 20,000 types of orchids available on the market today! Orchids are some of the most beautiful flowers in the world. They come in a variety of colors and sizes, making them perfect for any occasion. Orchids are easy to care for, making them a great gift idea. They’re also one of the most popular flowers due to their beauty and longevity. Orchids come in many different varieties, so you can choose the perfect one for your special someone.

Hanging Baskets and Containers

Hanging baskets and containers are easy to care for and will brighten up any room. They are also great for students who live in dorms, as they tend to be more portable than a potted plant. Hanging baskets can be hung on walls or windows, while containers can be placed on desks or shelves. This is a great gift for teachers as well! If you have kids who go back to school this year, try gifting them with something that will make them feel more at home when they are away from home (and let’s face it–that’s what school is). If you are looking for a gift that will make your child, feel more at home, try gifting them with a hanging basket or container plant. These gifts are especially great for teachers, as they can be placed in classrooms and hallways to liven up the space.

You can also choose to gift teachers with some of the supplies they need in order to maintain their classroom. If you know a teacher who is always running short on pens, markers or crayons for their students, try gifting them with some new supplies for their classroom. You can also try gifting them with something that will make their lives easier. Teachers spend a lot of time in their classrooms, so anything that will help them out would be greatly appreciated. If you know that your friend or family member has a big project coming up soon, try gifting them some mechanical pencils or pens so they can always have one on hand when inspiration strikes.


The best plants for back to school are cacti, succulents and flowering plants. Cacti are easy to care for and can be used in many different ways. Succulents are drought tolerant, so they are perfect if you have a small dorm room with no access to water or if you do not want to worry about keeping the plant alive while away at school.

Flowers are also an attractive addition to any dorm room because they add color that is lacking in most college settings! If you plan on traveling home often during breaks, consider getting flowers that last longer than one week (like roses or sunflowers). If you want to bring a plant into your dorm room, look for one that will fit in with your lifestyle and needs.

Whatever floral product you decide to send as a back-to-school gift, we have a wonderful selection and professional floral designers eager to assist!

There are some major differences between indoor and outdoor plants. Houseplants are often more delicate than outdoor plants and require more care. Indoor plants need less water than outdoor plants, but they also need more light. You’ll need to keep the soil moist but not soggy, and make sure that the soil drains well so that your plant doesn’t get waterlogged.

If you’re looking for a new houseplant, we have some great ideas for you! Here are our top five choices:

1. Peace Lily: The peace lily can be grown in both sun or shade and is easy to care for. It doesn’t need much water and grows best when it’s watered regularly throughout the summer months (May through September). Peace lilies are also referred to as spathiphyllum. It’s a relatively common houseplant that’s often seen in offices and homes, with its low-maintenance requirements and long lifespan.

People tend to buy spathiphyllums more frequently during the winter months than any other time of year. The holidays are coming up soon, so now might be a good time to start planning how you’re going to celebrate!

2. African Violets: African violets can be grown in either shade or full sun and prefer moist soil with good drainage. You should water them regularly during their growing season (April through October). They grow best in temperatures between 60 degrees Fahrenheit and 80 degrees Fahrenheit at night time.”

African violets are beautiful, easy-to-grow plants that are great for people who don’t have a lot of time to spend on their plants. They’re perfect for beginners, too—and they can be grown indoors or out.

These plants are members of the Gesneriaceae family and were first discovered in Africa in the 19th century. Since then, there have been hundreds of varieties created with different colors, shapes, and sizes. They’re named after their discoverer—Walter Adolphe Neidenbach—and grow best in indirect sunlight.

3, Diffenbachia: Diffenbachia is a plant that is native to Central and South America. It’s also known as the Swiss Cheese plant because of its colorful patterned leaves, which look like tiny slices of cheese. In fact, it’s often used in floral arrangements or as a houseplant because it’s easy to care for, grows quickly, and requires little sunlight.

Diffenbachia plants are popular among those who want to add a bit of color to their home without taking on the responsibility of caring for a full-size tree or shrub. They’re also great for children’s rooms and offices because they don’t require much attention to stay healthy.

4. Kalanchoe: Kalanchoe plants are succulents that are often used as houseplants. They have thick, fleshy leaves and produce small flowers in a wide variety of colors.

The most common type of kalanchoe is Kalanchoe blossfeldiana, commonly known as the Mother of Thousands plant. This plant produces new plants from its leaves, so it’s easy to start new plants from cuttings. The other most common types of kalanchoe are Kalanchoe daigremontiana, also known as Kuda (the Baby Jesus plant), and Kalanchoe tubiflora.

Kalanchoe plants can be kept indoors or outdoors depending on the type you choose and how much water they need. If you want to keep them indoors, choose one that has at least six hours of sunlight per day so it can flower properly. You can also bring them outside when the weather is warm enough for them to thrive in their new environment without getting too much sun exposure which would burn their leaves or cause them to wilt faster than usual!

Kalanchoe plants are available year-round but tend to be more popular during springtime due to their flowering nature during this time of year (April-May).
