Struggling to figure out what to get dad this Father's day? Want to wow him with a cool gift that's maybe a little (or a lot) more exciting than the standard socks and jocks? Not to worry! We're here to help with some great father's day Indoor Plant gift suggestions that'll cater to everyone from the beginner plant dad, to the master plant farmer!

Why are Indoor Plants good gifts for dad you ask? Well besides looking incredibly snazzy, they'll purify the air around the home and also create a more calming, homely atmosphere! They are also a great way to bring the family together, looking after multiple plants and having a schedule on who waters them and who rotates them is a fun way to bring dad and the family together! 
The Beginner Plant Dad

So you want to get dad into the plant parent life but concerned he'll just murder your green gift straight away? The perfect beginner plant - the Sansevieria Hahnii Green, is definitely one of the tougher plants we have that can handle a bit of neglect. Being a succulent they don't like to be watered too much, but do love a bit of indirect sunlight, which is perfect for any beginner plant dad who is looking for a good looking, easy to maintain plant that won't die within the first few weeks!
