Valentine came to me at a time I was interested in getting plants to make my living space look like a happier place to be in. My dad likes to get my mother and me flowers for Valentine's, but this is the first time it's a potted plant instead of a bouquet, which made me especially happy.
Unlike Halloween, his cousin, Valentine came with information on how to take care of him as well as his species, A. Kalanchoe. They seem to be close to succulents (which I deduced given the thickness of the leaves) which makes them hardy plants. Perfect for transporting, selling, gifting, and clumsy hands like mine.
While Halloween lives in my parents' house, which is big and sunny and more natural than the city, I insisted in keeping Valentine with me. He's currently in the process of losing flowers, I guess his flowering season is coming to an end.
