Is Valentine’s Day approaching, do you have an upcoming anniversary or do you just want to surprise your loved one(s)? Plants are the answer!

You must be wondering, where do I find these cute plants that symbolise LOVE? We’ve listed the cutest ones for you, so all you have to do is pick your favourite and surprise the lucky receiver.

1. Shine bright like a Diamond

We all know that diamonds are a girl's best friend, especially the ones that are variegated! The Spathiphyllum Diamond is a variegated version of the Spathiphyllum, which is also known as a ‘Peace Lily’. She differs in her stunning variegated accents all over the leaf. This makes her a real eye-catcher and the perfect gift!

2. Heart Fern

The Hemionitis Arifolia is also called the Heart Fern, which makes her the perfect gift to surprise your loved one. The Heart Fern loves to show her super cute and soft heart shaped leaves. It kinda looks like all leaves compete with each other as every leaf is looking for her own spotlight, how cute! This pretty one therefore happens to brighten up every dark and shaded corner of your home!

3. Heartleaf Scandens

The cute Philodendron Scandens Micans is a cute baby plant and is often called the sweetheart plant, because of her heart-shaped leaves. She’s perfect for hanging baskets and like the perfect lover, this plant not only looks flawless, it’s also very low-maintenance! The perfect gift for beginning PLNTSparents!
