The secret meanings behind the plants in our LEGO® Botanicals Collection

The secret meanings behind the plants in our LEGO® Botanicals Collection

There’s something truly wonderful about giving and receiving plants.

Since ancient times, different cultures and traditions have believed that plants hold deep spiritual meaning.

But as generations have come and gone, our society has become less familiar with these symbols.

It’s still as relevant as ever though, because knowing what plants represent can help you pick out the perfect gift.

The joy of gifting plants

Whether it’s a housewarming, a birthday or something to brighten somebody’s day, there’s a plant for any occasion. 

So, if you weren’t blessed with a green thumb, the new LEGO® Botanicals Collection is a calming way to enjoy flora without all the maintenance. 

We have plants of every personality, and these are the secret meanings behind them...

Expressing love and affection

If you want to show someone that you love and care about them, there are so many beautiful plants to choose from. We recommended opting for something meaningful, like an orchid. 

Flowers have their own language, and the delicate orchid is all about the language of love. Symbolizing love, beauty and luxury, an orchid is the perfect gift for Mother’s Day, anniversaries or weddings, and it makes a nice change from the classic go-to roses (as much as we love them). 

These elegant flowers are known for being hard to keep alive, but we guarantee you won’t have that problem with this one. It even comes with a buildable pot!

Help someone stay strong

When somebody is going through a hard time, or your friend is having a bad day, or it’s a Monday, help someone get through with a plant that shows ‘you got this’. 

Succulents represent strength, tenacity and positivity, making it an ideal gift to show your support. 

Cacti are a great way to say it’ll all be okay in the end, because they symbolize endurance. Just like LEGO® bricks, a cactus can stand the test of time, even in the desert heat, so they’re a real reminder to keep going, and not give up. And what a lovely message that is.

Our LEGO Botanicals succulents allow you to build and display a variety of different plants from the succulent family like cacti, agave and aloe (the latter symbolizing beauty and good health).

A job well done!

Looking for a way to tell someone ‘Congratulations’ or ‘You rock’? The Bird of Paradise flower symbolizes success, excellence and freedom so it’s the perfect plant to give someone for their graduation, a new job, promotion or achieving something awesome.

The exotic flower will bring a bright, tropical pop to any room.

Known for being a great indoor plant, our LEGO® brick version is just as impactful and the biggest in our collection (since Bird of Paradise plants can grow up to 6 feet (2 meters) tall, just like your trophy cabinet)!

For those who like to come home to a peaceful, tranquil space after a long day, this plant is for you. 

As you might know, building with LEGO® bricks has proven to help mindfulness and relaxation, so if you have a friend who’s always on the go, or who has a stressful job, let them find their flow and escape for a while by building a LEGO bonsai tree. 

Bonsai trees symbolize peace, calm and harmony, so they bring a sense of chill to one’s feng shui. They’re also known to bring good luck. 

Surrounding yourself with plants with certain meanings can bring positive energy and good vibes to your home. That’s why a bonsai tree makes a great housewarming gift!

So, now you know the meaning behind the plants. And if you’re anything like us, you’re ready to surround yourself (and your home) with positive plant energy! Explore the full LEGO® Botanical Collection here for a dose of flower power.
