Money Tree

Buy Bloomscape Potted Money Tree

Our most-gifted plant ever, the Mini Money Tree makes an excellent housewarming gift. We love that it’s a Feng Shui favorite known for capturing positive energy and bringing wealth and good fortune to its keepers. The long, pointed leaves give it lots of visual texture and are complemented by the stump-like trunk. If you’re looking for something more impactful, it’s also available in a larger tree size that features elegantly braided trunks.

The money tree thrives in bright to medium indirect sunlight, but can also tolerate a lower light environment. Pair it with All-Purpose Fertilizer which should be used once per month during the spring and summer.

Bromeliad Pineapple

Did you know the pineapple is a nearly universal symbol of hospitality? It’s a tradition going all the way back to the 15th century! That’s exactly why the Bromeliad Pineapple is one of our top recommendations for a housewarming gift. The plant arrives with a miniature ornamental pineapple fruit surrounded by long, arching leaves. Although this variety is not grown for edible consumption, it’s still an adorable and thoughtful gift.

A type of bromeliad, the pineapple plant thrives in direct to bright indirect light. Add the Wooden Plant Stool for a little boost to get this plant closer to a window. You’ll know the pineapple has reached maturity when it’s fragrant, slightly soft, and tinged yellow.

Pet-Peromia Collection

Curated for parents of curious pets, the Pet-Peromia Collection features a trio of easy-care and pretty peperomia plants. Known for their hardy nature, peperomias have semi-succulent leaves and stems that store excess moisture, allowing them to go longer between waterings. Featuring a variety of leaf shapes and colors, these compact trailing plants style seamlessly into any decor.

Save some table space by elevating this trio on our Hanging Saucer. Placement near a bright window with indirect light is best, though peperomias are also adaptable to lower light.

Blue Star Fern

Make a statement when gifting the elegant Blue Star Fern, which features wide, blue-green fronds. This charming beauty is sure to bring a smile thanks to its slightly wild but still understated look. We enjoy the lush texture it brings to a side table or as a tabletop centerpiece where it can be admired from all angles.

Choose a place with bright indirect light for this fern. The adjustable Wooden Plant Stand is perfectly sized and expands to accommodate larger-sized pots, giving it the ability to grow with the plant.

Red Prayer Plant

Another top choice for gifting, the Red Prayer Plant flaunts multi-toned foliage with a distinctive painterly pattern. The large, oval leaves fold up at night, resembling hands folded in prayer and giving it the common name of prayer plant. This semi-trailing beauty perches on tabletops, mantles, bookshelves, and more, making it adaptable to many spots throughout a home.

Elevate the look with our Macrame Plant Hanger for a unique display option that won’t take up valuable tabletop space. Placement near a bright window is best, but avoid direct sunlight which can scorch the thin leaves.
