My latest segment on "Home & Family" show is about "Legacy Plants," or special plants that have been passed to others through cloning.
There is nothing new about taking cuttings to multiply a plant but what is unique about my Legacy Plant design is the way the plants are shared.
Take a Closer Look!
Instead of handing over a cutting of your special plant in a plastic bag or in a small growing pot, create a "gift package" that elevates your plant to heirloom status.
I know I would treat a gift plant with much more importance if it looked like the plant in the photo above.
Legacy Plant Gift Kit
Place your plant cutting into a beautiful container after it has grown a decent size.
Don't leave it in your plastic grow pot.
I blinged out my plant with sheet moss and decorative shells.
An important feature of the Legacy Plant kit is a framed photograph of the plant and the plant owner that accompanies the gift plant.
In addition to this, I designed a custom plant tag that tells the story of the plant including the year the plant was first received, the occasion, and the person who received it!
The materials are from Michaels Craft store.
Popsicle stick glued to a pre-shaped wood marquee and painted copper.
The inscription was printed on computer paper and Mod Podged over the marquee.
No one will ever forget the significance of your Legacy Plant when it comes with these details.

African Violet with photo and plant tag.
I displayed the plant with a cute "Pass it On" decorative piece I had made with birch tree slices and etched ink.

I love the textured photo frame that compliments the rugged container holding the Arrowhead or Nephtitis plant.
