The Lotus: The National Flower of India

The national flower of India, lotus is a sacred and worship-worthy in different religious groups across various regions for time immemorial. Held in high esteem as the symbol of enlightenment and new beginnings, the lotus blossoms out of the muddiest waters yet embodies such purity and beauty – the complete opposite of the environment in which it thrives. Often mistaken for water lilies, lotuses have different structures and only come in hues of pink and white, while lilies come in an abundance of shades. According to some reports, like animals, lotuses can control their temperatures and exist almost independently of their surroundings. It’s no wonder why they’re so characteristically mystical!

Did you know that lotus tattoos are popular amongst people who’ve traveled down life’s darkest tunnels and finally saw the light? These gorgeous flowers don’t only flatter valley beds and look amazing in vases but also represent reemergence. Revered for their resilience and beauty, lotuses remind us that even when surrounded by gloom, the sparks of hope in us can reignite and awaken our light. In this blog, we briefly touch on the history of India and the lotus, highlight some modern-day uses of this beautifully mystical flower, and throw in some DIY flower tips. Keen? Keep scrolling!

Spooky Life of Flowers: The Exotic Anthurium

From the corpse flowers that grow generously as they hover ten feet above their flora cousins to the watermeal that thrives and blossoms despite being the size of a mere grain of rice, flowers are both mysterious and beautiful companions that make life and love interesting. To the naked eye, flowers are simply the harvest of seeds, but in reality, they are as complex and unique as us humans – Only more colorful. Today we’re diving into the life of one of our favorite exotic spooky flowers: Anthurium!

Ever heard of Anthurium? Yeah, me neither. At least not before delving into this blog. However, I am certain that at least three-quarters of us have seen and touched a type of Anthurium. Also known as flamingo flowers (yes, it does kind of look like the animal), anthuriums are popular leather-textured house plants that come in a wide variety of colors. They make for great gifts, have a few legends centered around them, and are pretty easy to take care of.

Father’s Day Plants & Flowers Dad Will Love

If I were tasked with mentioning all the reasons that make fathers so special and worth celebrating internationally, we would need thousands of scrolls, dozens of durable feathers, and gallons of ink to pen down all the things that pop up when I think of all that fathers represent, hence Father’s Day. Father’s Day rolls by yearly and celebrates fathers in all their glory! Making now the perfect time to learn about the perfect Father’s Day plants to surprise dad!

Fathers do much more than fixing broken cabinets and unclogging congested waste pipes that no one else would dare touch. Their value goes beyond anything you can measure. Good fathers are a rock who fill a variety of roles. Just like there’s no perfect way to be a father, there’s no perfect gift for a dad either. Over time, I’ve seen how a traditional African father’s role grew from traditional decision-maker and breadwinner, to equally involved in the running of the household. With that came a realization that fathers also appreciate ‘soft’ and overly sentimental gifts. Like flowers that were previously only appreciated by women. You can only guess how excited I was to find this little detail out.
