Quick translation for "Happy plants"?

Postby happyhappy » Sat 06.29.2013 9:09 pm

Hello there!

I'm new to the site and just finished reading through the various rule and guideline posts, so hopefully I am not going to screw up on my first post here. :blush:

I'd be extremely appreciative if someone could let me know if this is correct and, if not, perhaps offer me the correct translation? Thank you!

I'm hoping this will mean "Happy plant"/"Happy plants" (as in, plants that are happy): "植物幸せ" (Or would it be "植物の幸せ"?)

Thanks very much in advance!
(And I am sorry if I made a mistake or wasn't allowed to ask something like this! :blush: )

の Is possessive, so 植物の幸せ would be 'the happiness of plants'

幸せな植物 is my suggestion.

If it's like a kind of slogan you could use katakana-English: ハッピー植物 or something.

EDIT:

I did a quick search and I found that the word 幸福 (happiness, bliss) was used frequently to describe plants. So, 幸福の植物 (plants of happiness - a bit more ambiguous than 'plants that are happy' but if that works for you..)
