We love them and we need them in all shapes and sizes. We are constantly repotting plants and need to have a stash of pots on-hand at all times. Pots come in all different types of materials such as ceramic, plastic and terra cotta just to name a few. You can find so many other pot materials but these three are what I gravitate towards when I need pots.
These would make wonderful houseplant gifts. They are amazing and allow you to move your plants all around the house without having to lift them. Unless you need to move them up flights of stairs… I use pot caddys for my bigger hard to lift plants.
Gnat Sticky Traps:
It happens to the best of us: one day you are happy living your life, and then the next you are fighting for territory because a colony of gnats has taken over your house. The houseplant parent in your life will thank you. Trust me.
As your plant collection grows, you’re going to need more places to put them. Plant stands, shelves, and stools can help solve that problem. As an added bonus, they offer you vertical height which in turn adds dimension to your space.
This is the perfect gift for the new plant parent who may not know exactly when to water. You stick the meter into the soil and it tells you how moist the soil is. You then have to determine depending on the type of plant if it’s time to water or not.
This comes in so handy when you need to repot a plant indoors. They make amazing houseplant gifts because they allow you to repot without the mess. This is a great gift for the plant parent in your life.
Cute Watering Cans:
Every houseplant parent wants/needs a trendy watering can. It makes the plant watering job so much more fun.
Humidifiers are musts for those fussy plants that need a humid environment to survive. I usually run my humidifier during the winter months when my house is more dry. Any houseplant lover will appreciate a nice humidifier as a Christmas gift.
Trellis or Moss Poles:
There are so many varieties of plants that love to climb. Moss poles or Trellis help give those plants the surface to climb on. Many plants once given the option to climb will produce bigger foliage.
So many houseplant parents keep a greenhouse in their homes. They are perfect for those humidity loving plants. Having a greenhouse makes it easier to control the humidity for those special plants that struggle in gen pop.
