Whether you’re single, in a long-distance relationship or spending 24/7 with your partner, it’s been a tough year for romance! Understandably, most people don’t feel like celebrating V-Day this year, a holiday that already has a bit of a mixed rep. But in this year of miserable isolation, what could be more important than showing the people in your life that you’re thinking of them?
Counterintuitively, the longer the lockdown rolls on, the less likely they are to reach out to friends and family. The lonelier people become and the more isolated the feel, the harder it is to engage in social rituals, which is obviously made even harder at this stage of the pandemic.
That’s why we’re encouraging our followers to spread love to all those who need it this Valentine’s Day - not just to their significant other!

Best Valentine’s Plant for Your Dad
Pilea 'Greysy' | Pilea Glauca 'Greysy'
Dads deserve a treat too! Depending on your Pa’s lockdown situation, he might need a desk buddy or something to cheer up his bedside table. Our Pilea Greysy with the Cubo Pot combination is a great bet for either. Small and handy, it won’t take too much space. While it loves the sun, it might not be the perfect partner for sunbathing since it cannot stand the heat too much. So better to tell your dad to take it in the shade from time to time. Make sure to include a gift card at the end of your purchase, just in case your dad wants to grow his plant collection!
Best Valentine’s Plant for Your Best Friend
You know your best friend better than we do, but we know what we’d absolutely love to receive from ours… this bright and bountiful Calathea Triostar is the perfect air purifier when working from home and gives your besties sweet dreams in their bedrooms.
Originating from the rainforest, this superstar needs a little bit more treatment. Mainly it is all about keeping our little friend’s soil moist and doing the finger test before you next give her water. Spring and mass vaccinations are on the horizon but until then, we need to make an effort to inject some colour into our lives.
