Our favorite picks from the holiday season to keep around your home and gift to your friends & loved ones

POINSETTIAS

Poinsettias make excellent houseplants due to their vibrant and festive aesthetic, especially during the holiday season.  With their iconic red, white, or even pink bracts, they add a touch of warmth and elegance to indoor spaces during the holidays.  Beyond their visual appeal, poinsettias are relatively low-maintenance, thriving in indirect sunlight and requiring moderate watering.

They are adaptable and can continue to bloom well beyond the holidays with proper care.  Additionally, poinsettias contribute to the indoor environment by removing certain pollutants from the air.  As iconic symbols of celebration, these plants bring joy and seasonal charm to homes, making them a wonderful choice for both experienced and novice plant enthusiasts alike. 

FROSTY FERN

The Frosty Fern houseplant, scientifically known as Selaginella kraussiana ‘Frosty,’ captivates with its delicate, frosted appearance. This charming fern features intricately branching, silver-white leaves that resemble delicate lace, lending an ethereal touch to indoor spaces. As a resilient and low-maintenance plant, the Frosty Fern thrives in indirect light and consistently moist soil.

Its trailing habit makes it a perfect choice for hanging baskets or as a ground cover in terrariums, adding a touch of woodland beauty to any setting. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the Frosty Fern’s adaptability and unique foliage make it an enchanting addition to indoor gardens, bringing a sense of natural elegance to the home environment.

CYPRESS WITH SNOW

The Cypress houseplant, often representing varieties of the Chamaecyparis or Cupressus species, introduces the timeless beauty of evergreen foliage into indoor spaces. Characterized by slender, aromatic leaves in shades of green, this compact tree brings a touch of nature to homes. Ideal for well-lit areas, the Cypress houseplant thrives in well-draining soil and offers versatility in both its aesthetic appeal and adaptability to different environments.

With proper care, it maintains its distinctive conical shape, adding a touch of sophistication to any room. Beyond its visual charm, the Cypress houseplant is celebrated for its potential air-purifying qualities, contributing to a fresh and invigorating indoor atmosphere.

Christmas Cactus

The Christmas Cactus, scientifically known as Schlumergera, is a beloved houseplant celebrated for its enchanting display of festive blooms during the holiday season.  Originating from the ranforests of Brazil, this cactus features flat, segmented stems that produce vibant, tubular flowers in various shades of red, pink, or white.  

Known for its adaptability, the Christmas Cactus flourishes in well-draining soil and moderate indirect light.  Its distinctive drooping growth habit and ability to bloom reliably around the winter holiday makes it a popular choice for adding a touch of seasonal charm to indoor spaces.  With minimal care requirements, the Christmas Cactus captivates plant enthusiasts with its long-lasting and elegant floral showcase, making it a cherished and enduring symbol of holiday cheer.
