Valentines Unusual Plants to Pot Up

 

There are so many unusual plants out there that will make unusual Valentineís Day gifts so we thought we would list a few.

* Bundle of Love Rose Plant
* Sweet Heart Bamboo
* Classing Budding Rose
* Hoya Heart
* Heart Ferns
* Lavish Lavender Rose
* Anthuriums

 398-Potted-Love-Rose-Pl

Most of these plants listed can be potted in bold bright red containers or precious pure white planters and make an easy and loving gift for those special folk in your life.  We recommend that you visit your local garden center or nursery and purchase the plants first.  Then figure out what size of decorative pot you will be able to drop the grow pot into. This way you wonít have to re-pot the plant just drop it inside the lovely garden container.  Then add a bow and bam! The perfect personalized and jazzed up Valentineís Day gift.

 395-Potted-Hoya-Heart

We love Hoya heart succulent.  It is small and perfectly formed to love like a heart.  Right now, succulents are so popular that everyone, boy or girl, young or old will love these.   Since they are usually pretty small you wonít need a very big container which saves on space and money.

Heart Ferns are dwarf plants with waxy glossy heart-shaped leaves on think black stems.  If you donít want to place it in a terrarium them place the pot in a steamy bathroom because these types of potted houseplants really need humidity.

 396-Potted-Heart-Fern

Who doesnít like Anthuriums Ė they look just like hearts and come in bold reds and soft whites.  Each heart-shaped flower is elegant and fancy.  You canít put this into any plain old terracotta flowerpot. No way, these need to be in a glossy high shine container with lots of bright colors and simple elegant lines.

 397 Potted Anthuriums

Donít let Valentinesí Day come and go with a mediocre attempt at something overpriced and awful.  Search out these plants, purchase a nice garden pot and give a gift of beauty and love that someone will truly appreciate.

Valentine Clay Flowerpot DIY Project



 3714-Valentine-Flower-Po


With Valentine's Day approaching we thought it would be fun to see a DIY project that turns a plain clay flowerpot into something special.
Make this loving pot from Inspirations By D.

Take a plain clay flower pot in any size you want.  Make sure it has a matching saucer.  Wash the pot if it has already been used and make sure it's completely dry.

Paint the pot and saucer using a acrylic white paint and a sponge brush.  Let dry completely.  Take chalkboard paint available at Home Depot and paint a patch on the side of the flowerpot.  You can use tape if you want the square to be perfect for you can free style for a more home grown look.

Let the chalkboard paint dry on the side of the clay garden pot.  Then write a short message on the chalkboard.  Put the receiver's name, or write LOVE like the example shown.  Either way this is your time to be personal.

You can drop a nursery pot directly into this painted clay pot so that you don't have to even plant it.  That way when the holiday changes you can change the word on the pot and also take out the grow pot, toss it and replace with something new.  EASY!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!
