A Plant for Mom – Southeast Florida

Posted by Lorea Thomson on Friday, May 7th, 2021 at 4:15pm.

After this past year who would not want to give their Mom, a life filled with just a little less stress.  Plants can lower your stress level and last for years. Not only are plants just as a lovely as a colorful bouquet, but they also provide a variety of perks beyond their aesthetic appeal.

"A number of scientific studies shows being around houseplants can improve our health," Costafarms’ horticulturist Justin Hancock explains. "Benefits include lowering stress levels, lowering blood pressure, improving our moods, improving cognition and memory and more."

If the nurturer you are honoring this Mother’s Day is a trendy sort, consider succulents. These days, succulents are one of the trendiest houseplants because of beautiful exterior and low maintenance requirements. They can help you breathe better. During the process of photosynthesis, succulents release oxygen while absorbing our carbon dioxide, keeping our air fresh, pure, and clean.

With leaves shaped like hearts, Philodendron Brasil is the perfect little plant to remind your mom in a non-cheesy way how much you love her. Thanks to its trailing vines and ability to grow fast, this is a charming plant.

This beautiful leafy plant will add an instant tropical flair to any space. The Parlor Palm could grow quite slowly. It can also get big over time (four to six feet). So, if the mom you are sending it to has limited space, this might not be the right pick.

Consider a Dr. Suess-like tree.  It will surely make her smile. The Ponytail Palm technically qualifies as succulent, making it a slow grower and drought-tolerant which is great for Southeast Florida. The plant is perfect for someone who have little time to care for a houseplant or travels often.
