What’s the Houseplant Often Sent to Funerals?

I want to send a houseplant to a funeral. I know there is a special one that it often used for this sad occasion. Could you tell me the name?

Hi Cory,

There are two plants that are often sent to funerals. The first is the Peace Lily also called a Spathyphyllum.

Peace Lily plants are flowering houseplants that also clean the air of harmful chemicals. However, these are poisonous plants and should be kept away from small children and pets.

The second plant that is often sent to funerals is a Prayer Plant.

The leaves of a Prayer Plant fold up at night as though they were praying. Read more about a Prayer Plant in the Popular Houseplant section of the website. Read more about Prayer Plants in the Popular HousePlant section of the website.
