A good house plant?
Fri, 05-01-2009 - 6:08pm

Curious if any of you ladies can recommend a nice house plant for a mother's day gift? My MIL has several house plants that sit on her windowsill and we were thinking of getting her one this year-- instead of another mug or keychain. :)

I am completely house-plant illiterate. But we'd be looking for something not too pricey, easy to care for and that would do good in a windowsill. She has tons of plants, so I'm not even sure where to start.

Any ideas? Thanks!!!!
