A houseplant may not typically be the first thing that comes to mind when choosing a surprise for your valentine. To help share the love and shine a light on these long-lasting gifts, we’ve selected three low-maintenance red houseplants that won’t lose their bloom by the weekend.
Known as one of the easiest houseplants to grow, the red aglaonema is looking for just a little water and any amount of light. The vivid red running along the edges of its dark green leaves provide a striking contrast.
These tall flowers come in a variety of colors. You can’t go wrong with white or pink and most even have a shock of red in the labellum (center). Choose one with more unopened buds and enjoy blooms for months after Valentine’s Day.
This tropical plant offers bold red, pink and purple flowers that shoot up from its pot in a bed of green. Used to a warm environment, bromeliads do well in bright light with lots of water.

If your houseplants outgrow their original containers, The Home Depot’s Garden Club has all the tips to transport them into new pots here. Just don’t throw away your plant’s plastic pot container – they can be reused and recycled at The Home Depot Garden Centers as part of the Plant Pot Recycling Program.
