Gifting plants and cuttings to others is a generous thing to do with extra bonuses. Plants are beautiful, are interesting to look at, and help purify our air. Plus they absorb CO2 from the atmosphere and emit oxygen, giving better air quality indoors and outdoors.

Gifting them also has a positive impact on mindsets towards caring for them and by extension the natural world. When a plant is given as a gift the person receiving it will likely be more inclined to look after it well. Caring for plants can also helps foster a positive effect on mental health.

Depending on how widely and what plants you share with others, it can aid with biodiversity. Plus sharing cutting from your well established plants to others can save money and create fun community spirit towards plant cultivation and the sharing of knowledge.
