Plants Frequently Asked Questions
What plants are best to gift?
The best gift plants are easy to maintain, have vibrant leaves and flowers, and can easily fit in someone’s home as a decoration. Luckily, at FTD, our gift plants fit the bill!

Are plants great for any occasion?
Plants make great gifts for birthdays, graduations, promotions, and anniversaries — especially when paired with gourmet chocolates and other treats. However, a plant delivered straight to your special someone’s door can be a thoughtful and heartfelt gift option no matter the occasion. Housewarming is one of the most popular reasons to gift a plant. With so much new space to fill, the lucky recipient will be grateful to have a stunning and tasteful decoration to adorn a sunlit corner or sit on their kitchen table. Gorgeous green plants are an easy way to make a space feel more like home. And azalea plants – beloved for their delicate pink blooms -- make great gifts for coworkers, bosses, in-laws, and new friends. When you’re unsure what exactly someone’s taste may be, deciding to order a plant is always a sure bet.

What are the best low-maintenance plants?
Succulents and air plants are often considered some of the lowest maintenance plants. After all, with a little spritz of water now and then, they’ll be perfectly happy! However, there are plenty of other options for larger, more luscious plants that are still fairly simple to take care of. Most of the potted plants in our catalog require partial sunlight and regular water. We make sure they’re healthy and well-established by the time they arrive at the recipient’s door, so don’t worry about having to plant them or wait for them to grow — they’re beautiful just as they come!
