Capricorns are often misunderstood as being cold & calculating. These are probably the workaholics in your life, though they make incredible leaders. The Snake Plant makes perfect sense as their plant pairing because it is low maintenance and can live easily in an office. Snake plants do not need much water and thrive in both bright indirect light and low light areas, making it the perfect plant for the busy Capricorn in your life.

Independent, aloof, and unique are all ways to define Aquarians and air plants alike. Often mistaken for a water sign because of its representation as the water bearer, Aquarians are actually air signs. Much like air plants, they don’t find roots entirely necessary but crave deep intense care every once in a while. Completely submerge your air plant in water for about an hour every few weeks to keep it happy. Natural born rebels, Aquarians do not want to conform to society’s standards. Walk into any Aquarians home, and you might find a collection of unique air plants displayed in artisanal, handmade planters.

People born under the sign of Pisces are sensitive, creative, and colorful. This water sign is famous for always finding the good in everything around them and often blurring the lines between reality and fantasy. Maranta & Calathea plants have unique leaves striped with beautiful colors and can find the good in many spaces, especially in the Pisces’ beloved art studio. But beware, seeing the good in everything can come at a price. Signs of damage often get missed, and if these plants get too much sun, their leaves can burn or lose their color. They love moist soil and plenty of humidity. When properly cared for, these plants will grow stunningly!
(March 21 – April 19)
People born under the sign of Aries are hardworking, driven, and ambitious. Much like the vining Pothos plant, they are headed straight for the sun! Aries is the very first sign in the Zodiac calendar, so it’s no wonder the Pothos plant is suitable for plant parent beginners. It’s also a great plant to start your foray into propagation. Pothos plants and Aries are low-maintenance, ever-growing, and determined. Display your Pothos from a home office bookshelf to encourage that tenacity.
(April 20 – May 20)
Most people born under the sign of Taurus are loyal, reliable, and love a little luxury. They work hard but play hard too. Peperomia plants are much like a Taurus in that they grow strong and reliably with not much fuss but produce stunning, waxy leaves. These plants, like the Taurus, will feel safe and secure with a solid routine, proper drainage, and weekly watering. Display your Peperomia in the bathroom so the Taurus in your life can enjoy it while they relax in the bath or partake in a face mask after a long day’s work.
(May 21 – June 20)
Gemini’s are often mischaracterized for being two-faced and having a dark side or a split personality. In reality, they are colorful and vibrant, just like Dracaena plants. Geminis enjoy getting creative and are constantly seeking new endeavors. Geminis enjoy conversing with loads of different types of people, and Dracaenas compliment an assortment of different kinds of house plants.
(June 21 – July 22)
Cancers, represented by the crab in the Zodiac, can often be seen as cold or distant. However, they are kind and emotional once you get below their shell. The Hoya is a plant with a tough exterior, but if taken care of properly, it will vine. Cancers are sometimes homebodies that love to nest and create a space of sanctuary (much like a crab’s shell), and it can take just the right environment to get them to open up. A Hoya plant is the perfect gift for the Cancer in your life as it’s not too over the top but shows that you care.
(July 23 – August 22)
All eyes on Leos! Leos are known to have a flair for the theatrical, and Croton plants can be equally dramatic. Leo is ruled by the sun, and as such, Crotons love a sunny corner, preferably in the living room where everyone will see it! Crotons can also be a fussy, high-maintenance bunch and need lots of light but lots of moisture in the soil. Smaller crotons will often throw a fit over something as simple as being transported to a new place, so treat the Crotons and Leos in your life with extra care.
(August 23 – September 22)
Virgos are organized, logical and practical. The Money Tree is said to have good Feng Shui and can produce positive energy making it a great host /hostess gift for the Virgo in your life. Virgos are also perfectionists and appreciate order in a chaotic world. They are often seen as parental figures in many people’s lives and love having something to care for. Monsteras are the perfect plants for the caregiving Virgo. Monstera plants are fast-growing, making them incredibly rewarding plants for the nurturing Virgo.Sort by FeaturedView as
(September 23 – October 22)
People born under the sign of Libra are all about balance and harmony. As such, Spider plants and Spathiphyllum are the perfect plants for them. This air sign naturally pairs with some of the best air purifying plants, which would look fabulous in any Libra’s bedroom. These plants are easy to care for and will reward you with beautiful growth. Libras are people pleasers and find it easy to get along with anyone, much like the neutral green and white of the Spathiphyllum & Spider Plant.
(October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios are vibrant and passionate, much like the elegant Ficus. Known for their seductive qualities, Scorpios and Ficus plants can add romance to any space. Scorpios also know how to lie low and play the long game; whether they use that for good or grudges is up to them. Ficus plants also lay low as easy-care plants and prefer bright indirect sunlight.
(November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarians are natural storytellers. Known for their unrelenting pursuit of knowledge, this fire sign pairs well with Philodendron plants' uniquely shaped leaves and colorful nature. Display this plant in an entryway to greet any weary traveler and get ready for their tales of adventure. Philodendrons are low maintenance, and their soil can completely dry out between waterings. Similarly, the Sagittarians are great travelers as they can roll with the punches and adapt to change. These plants are perfect for anyone who wants to hit the road at a moment's notice.
