- Good things come in small packages!
- This goes double for succulents, which come in a variety of romantic colours like purples and pinks!
- Match them up with some turquoise or light greens for a love fest.
- We’re especially fond of succulents in heart containers or with cute accents like heart stones or gems.

Love is in the Air
- Tillansia air plants make perfect little packages for Valentine’s Day or any romantic occasion!
- They are so easy to dress up and add a bit of bling.
- Miniature terrariums give you a home for your air plant and also an easy way to add colour and accents.

Give Love a Chance to Bloom
Give Love a Chance to BloomNothing is more elegant than an orchid, and they’re known as a romantic plant throughout the world. Sophisticated and classic, you can find orchids in a multitude of colours and sizes. Purple blooms are our favourite for romantic holidays, but with their long-lasting blooms and dark green foliage, you really can’t go wrong with any colour! Orchids are also easier to care for than most people think. Shop the collection
My Hoya Heart Beats Only For You
Talk about adorable! Hoya plants are naturally heart-shaped, and when you plant them up in Valentines pots, or add pink accents, the cuteness factor explodes! Use two Hoya in a pot to show ‘your two hearts beating as one’, or plant up a single Hoya and ‘give them your heart’ for the occasion. Small enough for a desk plant (and reminder of your affection) or by the bedside table for romantic decor.
Straight From A Tropical Daydream
Don’t rule out tropicals as romantic plants! There are tropical plants that come in bright pink and red blooms, such as Kalanchoe, Anthurium and Bromeliads. As well, lush greenery shows a thriving relationship, and can be potted up in a romantic pot. Adding heart accents, pink and red pebbles or glittering stones create a heartfelt gift that will last for years.
