Considering the quirkiness of Halloween as a holiday, why not deviate from the use of conventional plants like mums and experiment with novel specimens like this tropical plant?
Even the Halloween jack-o'-lantern here isn't conventional; it's a ceramic jack-o'-lantern. The advantage it has over a pumpkin jack-o'-lantern is, of course, that it will never rot. But if you desire permanence in a Halloween jack-o'-lantern, do you have to resort to store-bought ornaments? Not at all. Gourds also make for permanent Halloween jack-o'-lanterns; and, like pumpkins, you can grow them on your own property.
