No, plants are not boring. In fact, they can be the living glue that holds your relationship together. Think of a plant as a metaphor for your long-distance relationship: when your partner is watering, feeding, and nourishing a houseplant, it symbolizes how they also nourish and take care of the relationship so it can thrive. Plus, plants have proven mood-boosting benefits, purify the air, and add a fresh touch of greenery that is always welcome. Since plants live a long time, when taken care of properly, they can become a symbol of your love and strength once you and your boo are finally together forever.
