The plant and flower of 2021 definitely radiate happiness and optimism.
2020 has been a tough year for all of us. It was a year full of challenges and growth. So this year, 1-800-Flowers predicts that 2021 will be defined by one of the most popular flowers and indoor plants: the sunflower and the Red Maranta Prayer Plant, giving new beginnings, hope, happiness, and health.
Fill Your Year With Happiness
Everybody knows the sunflower. Its bright, cheery, and gorgeous appearance, sunflowers symbolize adoration and loyalty. It’s also popular because it tends to reposition itself to face the sun. Sunflower is an edible plant and a popular skincare item for people with dry skin.
Sunflowers often last over a week, but it depends on where you purchased them from. However, if you’re planning to grow sunflowers in your home, make sure to have a consistent watering schedule. Water the plant when the soil is dry to touch. It also needs 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day.
Say Hello to Optimism
Red Maranta Prayer Plant got its name from its leaves; they’re flat during the day, then they fold up like praying hands at night. Red Maranta Prayer Plant symbolizes gratitude and respect. Additionally, it gives hope for a healthy and successful 2021.
Red Maranta Prayer Plant is a low-maintenance plant, so it’s perfect for beginners and busy plant owners. Provide bright, indirect sunlight, and keep the soil moist but avoid overwatering. Also, don’t forget to increase the humidity by misting it regularly or placing it on a pebble tray.
