Zodiac signs and house plants have way more than one thing in common. Not only are they go-to dinner party topics, they’re also unique in that they require their own wants and needs. So what’s the key to diving into the world of botanical gardens and house plants? Choosing one that aligns with your own personality and zodiac traits. We’re giving you a run-down on which plant you should grab at your next farmer’s market run based on your star sign.
Fire Signs - Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius
Our fire sign friends are passionate and charming. They’re always out-and-about, so they need a plant that doesn’t demand a lot of attention. Cacti are perfect for the wanderlust-obsessed fire signs because of their strength and resilience. If you think an Aries, Leo or Sagittarius can handle any curve ball thrown their way, imagine a cactus learning to survive and grow in even the driest of deserts. Let’s just say, they’re perfect for each other.
Earth Signs - Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn
Earth signs radiate confidence and loyalty. They appreciate the finer things in life, like food, wine, and a good time. Tauruses, Virgos, and Capricorns know how to command a room - just like a fiddle-leaf fig. Both earth signs and fiddle-leaf figs feel most inspired in a warm, bright atmosphere, so be sure to set your plant next to a window for the best natural lighting. And for the best IG pics, of course.
Air Signs - Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius
The leaders of the universe, air signs are highly intellectual and rational. They love forming relationships with people who are resourceful and don’t have to lean on them 24/7. This is why venus fly traps are their spirit plant. Venus fly traps crave structure and consistency. @Geminis, @Libras, and @Aquariuses, are we speaking your language? Treat both air signs and venus fly traps with respect and consideration to ensure the best possible interaction.
Water Signs - Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces
If you’ve ever met someone who naturally comes across as deep and intuitive, they’re probably a water sign. Water signs shine when using their imagination and spending time solo. Much like a string of pearls, they’re all about peace and serenity. Give both water signs and string of pearls a little mist of attention every now and then, and they’ll be on cloud nine for a while. If you’re a Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces, add this beautiful plant to your happy place to up the ambiance.
While we could go on forever about the zodiac signs and how they align with our shopping and spending habits, we’ll go back to doing what we do best. We hope this plant pairing gets you even closer to the #housegoals you’ve been dreaming of. And remember, if you ever feel alone, there’s always a plant out there that understands you!
