Do you give your plants nicknames?
Naming your houseplants can be a fun and creative way to personalize your green friends. Here are some ideas:
Choose a name based on the plant's characteristics, such as "Spike" for a spiky cactus or "Fernando" for a fern.
Name your plant after a favourite character from a book or movie, such as "Harry" for a plant with lightning-shaped leaves, or "Groot" for a plant that resembles the character from Guardians of the Galaxy.
Name your plant after a friend or family member, such as "Aunt Rose" for a rose bush or "George" for a plant that reminds you of your grandfather.
Use a name that reflects the plant's origin or species, such as "Panda" for a bamboo plant or "Olive" for an olive tree.
Choose a name that is punny or humorous, such as "Fernando Pessoa" for a fern or "Holly Golightly" for a holly plant.
