It wouldn’t be unusual to give flowers, so I don’t think it’s any different to give a live plant. Personally, I think tobacco is a strange choice, but if it has meaning, why not. He can always just tell the parents he is thinkng about them and explain why he choose the tobacco plant. 

Are tobacco plants hard to take care of or anything? If it’s a difficult plant, I might think about it more.

@CrazyCatLady13:  I think any nice gesture at this time would be appreciated. I would probably give a donation to the charity + the plant. A nice card goes a long way too.

@CoCoCourtney:  +1. I don’t think it is strange to give them a plant, however, a tobacco plant is an unusual choice… But if it means something to your fiance’s deceased friend, then I think it would be appropriate.

I would also give to the charity and send a card.
