From a ‘thank you’ to a ‘congratulations’: a plant is always nice to give and receive as a gift. Waterdrinker has selected 4 plants with a special meaning that are extra original to give as a present.
A charming succulent that is easy to maintain. Many different variations, therefore, choice for everyone! A plant with a tough character; a great gift for someone with perseverance.
This plant symbolizes a new beginning. The Calathea has its symbolism of the expression “to turn a leaf”, because that is exactly what the plant does when it gets dark. The perfect gift for someone who just bought a new home, has just graduated or has a new beginning awaiting in another way.
In addition to the healing effects of the juice from the stems of the plant, the Aloe vera has a deeper meaning as well. This plant is said to attract positive energy. And that is what you wish every family member and good friend of course!
An air plant – like the Tillandsia – looks very stylish in a home and you can also be super creative with it. Give it in a glass hanging pot or in a transparent pot with cork. No symbolic meaning behind these plants, but their air-purifying character does create a peaceful atmosphere. Photo credits by Bloemen Bureau Holland
