Plants as a Meaningful Wedding Gift!

Wedding season in Nepal is here, and choosing the perfect gift for the newlyweds can be tricky. When it comes to wedding gifts, plants are rarely considered. While most of us get deeply intimidated by the prospect of plant care, the reality is that simple care requires a splash of water and enough indirect light. If you really think, plants make great wedding gifts because of their simplicity, steady growth, and relatively low-maintaining qualities. A simple and elegant plant naturally brings charm, joy, and liveliness to a home. 

Check out these five easy to care and meaningful wedding plants that newlyweds will surely cherish!
