Cut flowers are synonymous with Mother’s Day but they don’t last as long as a live plant — and live plants are especially trendy right now with many self-proclaimed “plant moms” out there. While many moms would love to receive a potted plant they can enjoy for months or even years, figuring out where to order live plants online can be tricky. Thankfully, there are more options for ordering live plants online than ever before. And, of course, you can also order her a kit to grow the live plant herself — if she has a green thumb or wants to give indoor gardening a shot. The following list of live plants you can order online for Mother’s Day is sure to make any mom who loves plants happy.
