We put together a little list of some plant ideas and facts! Plants are a wonderful gift and finding the right one shouldn't be a hard thing! We are here to help! So let's dive into these 11 magical holiday plants!
Anthurium & Orchid

Agloenema & Tineke Ficus
Aglaonema (Chinese Evergreen) and Tineke Ficus (Rubber Plant) are beautiful, easy to care for houseplants. Their color variations add personality to any household! These are great plants for new plant parents who don't have pets as these are toxic to dogs and cats.
The lighter the variegation on Aglaonema, the more light it needs. Ficus love for their pot to be rotated every few weeks so all leaves will get light. This goes for all Ficus plants : Fiddle leaf, Audrey, Rubber, etc.
