A plant related to your zodiac sign is said to bring good fortune and luck into your life. Follow on to find your plant counterpart based on your zodiac sign’s personality traits.

If you’re into astrology, you know that each zodiac sign has a very distinct set of personality traits. So, wouldn’t each sign have a very different desire when it comes to their houseplants? Read on for our plant pick recommendations based on your zodiac sign. 

1. Aries: Orange Orchid 


Vibrant Aries is a fascinating fire sign, and your bold personality matches the Orange Orchid’s to a tee. While you’re independent, you love providing for those who rely on you—and as a proud plant parent, you won’t mind fussing over this one! Any Orchid is a great plant pal for a caretaker personality like Aries. 

2. Leo: Monstera Deliciosa 


Head-turning Leos attract the spotlight wherever they go. Like the Monstera Deliciosa, your presence fills a room and is impossible to ignore. Leos also love bright light, too—just like their plant pal. Whether it’s from their ruling star, the Sun, or a stadium filled with adoring fans. 

3. Sagittarius: Coffee Plant 


Hyperkinetic Sagittarians rarely run out of energy, and they don’t need a lot of attention to grow and expand. This low-maintenance, high-velocity sign runs on “natural caffeine” and, like the Coffee Plant, adds natural vibrance to every space and scene!

4. Taurus: Parlor Palm 


Hardy, self-assured Tauruses know who they are and what they like and never apologize for it. The tropical Parlor Palm is a beautiful plant with that go-with-the-flow attitude, growing taller by the day with little more than sunlight like the self-sufficient Taurus.

5. Virgo: Echeveria 

Self-contained with a hermit side, Virgos don’t mind spending time by themselves. In fact, they may prefer it! This regimented sign loves a plan and to have everything in its place. Virgos will happily parent a plant that follows a schedule and tends to be fastidious just like them, just like the succulent Echeveria. The Echeveria likes to stick to a routine, having things be a certain way, otherwise discomfort is inevitable. 

6. Capricorn: Snake Plant 


The most resilient of the signs, Capricorns are built to last—in fact, they thrive on surviving under minimalist conditions. The less you fuss over them, the better, just like the Snake Plant

7. Gemini: Calathea Vittata 

Versatile Gemini is playful and curious, like the Calathea Vittata and its brushstroke-stripped leaves. There’s no set pattern they’ll follow, no single reason to their rhyme, and that’s what makes both Gemini and this plant unique! 

8. Libra: Bird’s Nest Fern 

Libra is ruled by aesthetic and empathic Venus—and the delicate, lovely Bird’s Nest Fern also exudes a rare beauty. Just like this plant, Libras don’t apologize for being high maintenance. After all, you get to bask in their beauty and love—a fair exchange for your extra efforts, right?

9. Aquarius: Pilea Peperomioides 

The Aquarius is a peppy presence in any group, just like the Pilea Peperomiodes. As the sign of the future, Aquarians don’t like to get dragged into drama. They’d rather envision a bright tomorrow and spread happiness, just like this plant.

10. Cancer: Anthurium 


Cancer is ruled by the moon, and like the lunar phases, this sign’s moods can fluctuate. The Anthurium, or Flamingo Plant, also ebbs and flows—sprouting series of blooms throughout the year. And just like this zodiac sign, giving it some extra attention never hurts. 

11. Scorpio: Philodendron Green 


Transformational Scorpio attracts attention without trying. After all, they have a secretive side to them and don’t necessarily want to be noticed. But their magnetic energy turns heads nonetheless, something they have strongly in common with the Philodendron Green.

12. Pisces: ZZ Plant 


Pisces are natural nurturers, but this daydreamy sign can slip into their imagination, losing track of things like time, space and watering schedules. For the caring water sign that doesn’t always thrive in the mundane, the ZZ Plant will keep on growing and going, adapting to fluctuating conditions just like the zodiac’s Fish.
