Make Mother's Day Memorable with a Gorgeous Plant

Posted on April 29 2023

Mother's Day is a special occasion that is celebrated around the world to honor the wonderful mothers in our lives. While there are many gifts that you can give to your mother on this day, there's something particularly special about giving a living plant that can grow and flourish over time, just like the love and care a mother provides.

We offer a variety of unique and stunning plants that are perfect for Mother's Day, including the Satin Pothos, Tradescantia Spathacea 'Dwarf Tricolor', Lycopodium Squarrosa in Hanging Domes, and Phalaenopsis. Each of these plants has its own unique beauty and charm, making them the perfect gift for any mother who loves plants.

Satin Pothos

The Satin Pothos, also known as Scindapsus pictus argyraeus, is a member of the Araceae family and is native to Southeast Asia. This plant is a popular choice among plant enthusiasts and is known for its stunning, silver foliage that has a satin-like sheen. One of the best things about the Satin Pothos is that it is a low-maintenance plant that is easy to care for. It can thrive in a variety of lighting conditions, from low to bright, indirect light.



The Satin Pothos is a beautiful and easy-to-care-for plant that is perfect for mothers who are new to plant parenting or for those who simply want to add a touch of elegance to their home. With its stunning silver foliage and low-maintenance care requirements, it's a great addition to any plant collection.

Tradescantia Spathacea 'Dwarf Tricolor'

The Tradescantia Spathacea 'Dwarf Tricolor', also known as the Boat Lily or Moses-in-a-Boat, is a beautiful plant that is native to Central and South America. It is a member of the Commelinaceae family and is known for its striking, variegated foliage.



This plant features leaves that are green, pink, and white, making it a great option for mothers who love bold and colorful plants. The leaves grow in a rosette-like shape and can reach up to 12 inches in length. The Dwarf Tricolor is a relatively low-maintenance plant that prefers bright, indirect light. It can also tolerate lower light conditions, but the leaves may lose their vibrant coloring. When it comes to watering, it's important to keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged, as this can lead to root rot. One of the unique features of the Dwarf Tricolor is its ability to produce small, white flowers that bloom sporadically throughout the year. These delicate flowers add an extra touch of beauty to an already stunning plant.

The Dwarf Tricolor can be propagated easily through stem cuttings. Simply cut a stem with a few leaves and place it in water until it develops roots. Once the roots have formed, they can be planted in soil and cared for like a mature plant. The Tradescantia Spathacea 'Dwarf Tricolor' is a beautiful and bold plant that is perfect for mothers who love colorful and unique plants. With its variegated foliage and low-maintenance care requirements, it's sure to make a statement in any room.

Lycopodium Squarrosa in Hanging Domes

The Lycopodium Squarrosa is a gloriously quirky plant that originates from the West Indian Ocean. It loves of light, make sure you keep it in bright, direct sunlight, avoiding shady spots at all costs! Coming from the ocean also means it has a bit of a soft spot for high humidity and a nice little breeze, so open a window is a must to keep it happy. It loves regular mistings too!


The Lycopodium Squarrosa likes to take its time in the growth department - so don’t expect it to be a fast grower. If you notice that things seem to be going nowhere in terms of growth, a healthy portion of nitrogen fertiliser once a month should get things moving again nicely. 


The Phalaenopsis. Orchid is a beloved houseplant, and with its attractive blooms it's easy to see why! It loves bright, indirect sunlight, so make sure you keep it in an area that doesn't get direct sun. Your mom will surely appreciate this stunning flower on Mother's Day! With the beautiful flowers and its easy-care nature, it's no wonder the Phalaenopsis Orchid is a favorite among many. 

Giving a living plant as a Mother's Day gift is a wonderful way to show your mother how much you care. Not only will it bring beauty and life to her space, but it will also serve as a reminder of your love and appreciation throughout the year. So why not surprise your mother with a gorgeous plant from Tumbleweed Plants this Mother's Day? With our unique and stunning plant collection, you're sure to find the perfect gift to make her day memorable.
