Amazon Is Having a Major Sale on Some of Your Favorite Indoor Plants — but Only for Today!
You can buy essentially everything on Amazon. So, why not live plants? As a car-less city dweller, I’m personally loving the idea of having an oversized plant delivered straight to my door, rather than having to schlep it from a corner shop or nursery. And there’s no better time to go green than now, because for today only, Amazon’s Happy Holideals discount hub includes a huge plant and gardening sale, with up to 30 percent off several plant varieties from Costa Farms, one of the largest plant distributors in the U.S.
The plants — which include reader favorites like succulents, peace lilies, and devil’s ivy, are selling quickly, which isn’t surprising. They’re gorgeous, and for the most part, pretty tolerant to a wide array of conditions. Many also come in their own decorative containers, so all you have to do is unwrap them from the box and find a spot to display them in your home.
Here are some of the most popular plants you should snap up ASAP.
Costa Farms Peace Lily, Spathiphyllum, Live Indoor Plant, 12 Inch
Let lush, tropical flora into your home with the Costa Farms peace lily, which comes in a decorative planter. This plant loves humidity, should be kept moist, and grows best in bright, direct light. But don’t stress out if your space is a bit dark—a peace lily can be kept alive and well even in a windowless room.

Costa Farms ZZ Zamioculcas zamiifolia, 12-Inch
Not great at growing plants but don’t want to go the fake route? Consider a ZZ plant, which is extremely low maintenance. It grows best in bright to moderate indirect light, and can also flourish in low light (though it will grow more slowly). When watering, less is more, so let the top inch or two of the soil dry out before watering again, approximately every week or two.

Costa Farms Devil’s Ivy Golden Pothos, 4-Inch Grow Pot, 2 Pack
We’re already imagining this gorgeous vining plant spilling over on our window sill or casually cascading over a shelf. Devil’s ivy is considered one of the easiest houseplants to grow, so if you’re just starting your plant-parenting journey, this low-maintenance, drought-tolerant plant is a safe option. It requires no special care indoors and can even thrive in low light.

Costa Farms Bromeliad Indoor Tabletop Plant in 6-Inch Grower’s Pot
Add a tropical vibe to your space with the colorful bromeliad. This indoor plant doesn’t require a lot of water but does love ambient moisture, so you should use a mister to keep it happy, especially in the winter if the air is warm and dry. Bromeliads, which do best in bright, indirect light, only bloom once in their lifetime, making that burst of color even more special.

Costa Farms Premium Live Indoor Haworthia Succulent Plant in Ceramic Pot
Similar to the aloe vera plant, the polka-dotted Haworthia is another hard-to-kill houseplant. It typically grows to be 3 to 4 inches in height. loves bright light, and only requires watering when the soil is completely dried out. In the winter, it only needs watering about every other month, meaning you can pretty much forget about it — which is perfect for the holiday season, because aren’t you already busy enough?
