Valentine's Day is coming!

Valentine's Day will be here before you know it, 
and we have the ultimate plant geek gift to celebrate it!

Sweetheart Hoya “Valentines”!!!!

Write a love note directly on the heart-shaped leaves to create a unique living Valentine! Scratch sweet words of endearment on this heart shaped leaf and they become a permanent message of love.  White scar tissue forms wherever the leaf tissue is broken. It’s the Valentine’s gift that will give forever; Hoya’s are VERY easy to take care of, and require little water. Easy to transplant to a bigger pot, too!

We have them in the shop right now, just for you and your valentine!
