How to Select the Perfect House warming Plant

Many plants have come to be associated with rich symbolic meanings in various cultures, which makes a plant ideal for a housewarming gift with a meaningful message. The Money Tree symbolizes good luck and prosperity, while the Lucky Bamboo is associated with good fortune. These traditional Feng shui plants are perfect for bringing prosperous energies into your home.

When choosing housewarming plant gifts for friends, family, and colleagues, consider the following circumstances:

Space and Size of the New Home

How large your recipients’ new home is will determine how many plants you can get and how large they can be. Some plants, like the Split Leaf Philodendron, will be a great fit for a spacious home, as they like to spread out. If your recipient is moving into a smaller home, help make it snug and cozy with a small plant, like the charming and compact Watermelon Peperomia.

Level of Care

If you’re gifting a plant to someone with a busy lifestyle or new to plant care, get them one of the easy-care housewarming plants requiring minimal maintenance.

Climate and Hardiness Zone

The best housewarming plant gifts should fit the climate and hardiness zone of the recipient’s new home. Therefore, if you’re sending your plant gift to a different state, ensure it suits the conditions in which it will grow. The English Ivy Glacier, for instance, is a top choice for colder zones, as it can withstand temperatures up to 35°F.


Some plants can be toxic for cats and dogs, as they contain compounds that can cause animal health issues. Check that the plants you buy for pet owners for housewarming are safe for their pets.
