Costa Farms ~ Indoor Potted Plant ~ GIVEAWAY!!! ~ 5 Winners ~ Ends 7/23


Costa Farms is the is the leader in the indoor houseplant and bedding plant industry. If you've purchased a potted plant at one of the big retail chains or garden centers, chances are you took home a plant grown at Costa Farms. 


Costa Farms is a third generation, family owned business that globally stretches over 3,500 acres and employs 2,800 people. As you can see from the picture of their trial garden above, their farms are beautiful and lush & you can find anything and everything you can imagine in the indoor houseplant category. They currently grow over 1,500 types of houseplants including various popular indoor and outdoor tropical plants. Located in Goulds, Florida - I really would love to visit. 


In reading up on Costa Farms, I hear that when you do visit you'll find some of the nicest people you'll ever hope to meet. That has been true of my experience with them this far. Their marketing director is friendly and personable and represents her company well.  


I was sent several plants to review. They all arrived in great condition and are absolutely beautiful. Even those with fragile blooms reached me unharmed. I grow attached to my plants - to me it's almost like having a pet. I take the best care of them that I can.


As we were discussing what would make a good promotional giveaway, we decided on cacti & succulents -because of our overall drought across the country. Cacti & Succulents are among the most sustainable plants available. They are incredibly drought tolerant and usually require almost no care.







So, let me show you some of the lovely cactus & succulent selection Costa Farms offers.

Aren't they lovely? And each one of these is low maintenance!

Remember when you're out and you want to bring a plant home, check the tag and see if you're bringing home a Costa Farms plant!

WIN IT!!!

Five lucky winners will receive a wonderful cactus or succulent of their choice from the pictures above!

What I found helpful on the Costa website was the seasonal categorization ...which plants did better in which areas, r in shade, or sun, with orchids in their own section.

The desert rose is my favorite, and I am one of your GFC followers.

I checked out the website, it was my first time. How do you pick a favorite? There is so much helpful information! A plant library, gardening tips, being able to watch detailed videos on YouTube. I enjoyed seeing all the beautiful plants. Being able to search for a specific plant was super easy! I truly believe the website is set up perfectly. I am on mobile. So i usually have a hard time navigating through sites. I had no problems at all! I signed up for the newsletter as well. I cannot wait to get helpful and useful information to help me with my daily gardening. We grow vegetables and flowers as a family. It is the one thing all 5 of us have in common and truly love! The whole family is hoping to win a gorgeous plant. Wr don't have central heat or air, we have what they call baseboard heaters throughout our home. We get no fresh air, especially in the colder months. I think a plant would not only be a beautiful addition to our home, but a healthy one as well. Thank You for hosting this wonderful giveaway and I want to Thank Costa Farms for being so generous and donating the plants! There are going to be 5 lucky and happy people! I'm hoping I'm one of them!!

I don't know what it is but I like the one in the middle in the pink container. I think it is interesting.
