Believe it or not, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and whether you’re spending the holiday with a partner or friends (Galentine’s, anyone?), tradition demands a present that puts your feelings on display. Luckily Kate Hudson is here to help. Remember How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days? Well, today the actor introduced a real-life version of the movie’s iconic Love Fern through a collaboration with her spirit brand, King St. Vodka, and florals favorite Urban Stems. The plant, a potted Blue Bell fern, comes with an exclusive mister and a 15 percent discount code for Hudson’s luxury booze—and it just so happens to be the perfect V-Day gift.
Sold? Us, too—in fact we want one for our ourselves. But before you invest in a Love Fern, get familiar with the upkeep required if you don’t want your friend’s to resemble the film’s plant (i.e., dead). Ferns thrive in humidity and indirect sunlight, so they’re good candidates for a shower perch, especially if your bathroom has a window or two. If that isn’t an option, a mister is your best bet to keep leaves hydrated, especially when you’re dealing with moisture-zapping heaters and harsh light. Just remember that ultimately, in the eyes of Andie Anderson, the most important thing is a little TLC to keep your fern, and love, blooming.
