5 Low-Maintenance Gifts for Wishful Gardeners

Plant the Future's Fanciful Finds

5 low-maintenance gifts for wishful gardeners!

Botanical artist Paloma Teppa stocks her Wynwood shop, Plant the Future, with easy-to-care-for living greens perfect for the urbanites on your gift list.

Butterfly Garden, $98
Your ever-evolving pal will appreciate a hanging glass bubble filled with succulent plants and a cocoon that transforms into a butterfly in just six days.

Coral Cactus, $65
The desert flora (available in yellow, pink, or green) adds a dash of color to the home of any conservative dandy.

Terrarium, $330
For the recent burbs-turned-city dweller, Teppa’s created a whimsical world — succulents, cacti, a family of vintage porcelain rabbits, and layers of black and white sand — inside a crystal ball.

Air Plant Necklace, $60
Tree huggers can spread their message with wearable greenery that hangs from a gold chain and requires no soil.

Money Tree, $68
Inside the white ceramic container sits a sapling from the bonsai family whose presence is said to bring good fortune — ideal for your cheap roommate.
