Our zodiac signs can reveal a lot about ourselves. They can show us everything from our magical abilities to our darker qualities. The signs can also reveal how we go about our relationships. This includes our relationships with friends, family, significant others and plants!
Yes, that’s right. Just like people, different types of plants have preferences for their relationships with their owners. Some plants prefer more direct care while other plants are more independent and can fare well with some time alone. This directly correlates with your own traits. For example, finicky fiddle leaf figs are a perfect match for hardworking Taurus plant parents. Take a look at the zodiac plant pairing guide below to see what plant is best for you.
