Green Gift for New Year’s

décembre 30There are no traditional plants for New Year’s like there is for Christmas, but it’s always interesting to offer a plant, flowering or not, as a gift when you visit relatives or friends during the holiday season.

If you don’t know how green the recipient’s thumb is, consider offering a shade-tolerant foliage plant (philodendron, dieffenbachia, aglaonema, etc.). That’s because most people underestimate the light requirements of houseplants and then lose them, because without proper lighting, no plant can live very long. By offering as a gift a plant that can tolerate even the darkest corners, it is almost certain that the recipient will manage to grow it not only for a few months but for years. That way your gift will be really appreciated!
