  • Live plant. Lasts longer.

  • A live plant definitely! When my dh and I were dating I flat out told him I didn't care for cut flowers. I said, "What does that say about our relationship if they just wilt and eventually die? Diamonds are forever, you know." So he's bought a few really nice plants for me over the years, including a gorgeous mini rose plant that I transplanted and put in the garden.

  • I hate getting cut flowers because I find it a little depressing when they die. Plus it seems like a waste of money (no, I'm not a romantic person!). I would far prefer to get a live plant. A couple of years ago, my husband bought me a little Zen container with a bamboo plant in it and I loved that ever so much better than flowers.

  • Cut flowers! :)

  • I love cut flowers better. I usually kill the potted variety in a matter of days anyway, so may as well get the prettier ones!

  • I would be happy with either

  • Cut flowers... They only last a few days, that way when they die I don't have to feel guilty about killing the gift you gave me. I have a black thumb...

  • I would much rather have live plant!! Then you are keeping something alive. Cut flowers are nice but they just dont last!
