Below are 20 house plants for Valentine’s Day, from heart shaped leaves to pink foliage, these plants will make the perfect gift for any plant lover.

1. String of Hearts

Love will definitely be in the air with the beautiful trailing String of Hearts. With small heart shaped and pretty lace pattern leaves, this is a very popular plant for Valentine’s Day. Plant care is similar to that of a succulent, they’re very easy to care for as they’re tolerant to neglect. I have my own String of Hearts hanging from a shelf in my office.

2. Hoya Kerri

The Hoya Kerri is another popular plant for Valentines Day. They tend to be sold as a single small leaf, however they’re quite hard to come across. A good place to start looking is eBay, this will save you searching in your local garden centres or plant shops. It’s a hardy and undemanding plant with its succulent qualities and can be left alone for long periods of time.

4. Variegated Monstera

Monstera’s are very easy to come by and can be found in most garden centres plant shops and even supermarkets. However, a variegated Monstera is very difficult to come by, I have found a few in garden centres but because they are so rare, they are on the expensive side. With that said, buying a plant lover such a rare plant for Valentine’s Day is a very special gift.
