Cactus Collection

Despite their tough exterior, cacti are actually pretty easy to care for. You don't need a green thumb to help a cactus thrive; all it needs is lots of sunlight and a little water. In fact, it's more common for plant owners to overwater their cactus rather than underwater it. This variety pack comes with nine different cactus species, some that grow flowers and others with needle-like "leaves." Place them in these these little terra-cotta pots and spread them throughout your home for a touch of greenery in every room.

Heartleaf (or Sweetheart) Philodendron

A heartleaf philodendron is a full-bodied plant that cascades over the sides of its pot, so you can really admire the leaves. It tolerates both dry and humid air while growing in many levels of light. Place it in a fun pot that has neutral colors and a unique design to make this lush green plant stand out. Tip: If small leaves or large spaces between leaves show, it means your philodendron needs more light.
