Monstrous in size but not in maintenance, the Monstera plant originates from the tropical rainforests of southern Mexico and is extremely adaptable to indoor conditions. It loves medium to bright indirect light, and doesn’t require any added humidity. Monsteras love to climb, so as they grow, they’ll naturally send out aerial roots that can be trained to climb a moss pole. With age, new leaves develop more and more holes that give it its signature tropical look. This impressive plant is also tolerant of an occasional missed watering, making it ideal for dads on the go.

Pet-Friendly Favorites

The perfect pairing of beauty and pet-friendly features, our Pet-Friendly Favorites—the adorable Mini Money Tree and fun Ponytail Palm—were hand-selected by our team for their easy care and adaptability to different lighting conditions to ensure a worry-free environment for your pets. With regular pruning, these plants will continue to thrive and enhance any home or make a thoughtful gift for another pet-loving family. These plants are not only stunning but also low-maintenance, making them an ideal gift for dads who want to spend more time with their furry companions.

Bird of Paradise

Make a statement with your Father’s Day gift by choosing the Bird of Paradise. This plant commands attention with its oversized leaves and upright stature. Adaptable to indoors or out, the Bird of Paradise is perfect for dads who like to spend their summers outdoors. Choose a bright, sunny spot to help this plant thrive, and keep its leaves free of dust and debris with an occasional wipe-down or shower. For plants placed outdoors, be sure to slowly introduce them to more sun day-by-day. Learn more about moving indoor plants outside for the summer.

Tough Stuff Trio

Give the gift of ease with the Tough Stuff Collection, featuring a trio of our most-gifted and lowest-maintenance plants. If your Dad wants some green without all the fuss, this trio, including a Snake Plant, ZZ Plant, and Hoya, will be instantly appreciated. He’ll love that these plants are adaptable to almost any spot in his home and that they can go a long time between watering. Perfectly sized as a desk-or tabletop accent, the distinctive forms of each plant pair well together or can spread out around the house.

Money Tree

The Money Tree is perfect for dads seeking a low-maintenance plant that brings life to any space. With its distinctive braided trunk and lush green leaves, this resilient plant thrives in a sunny spot with occasional watering. Originally from Asia, the Money Tree adapts well to different conditions, making it a worry-free choice even when Dad’s attention is elsewhere. Its unique appearance adds a touch of style and charm to any room.
