Everyone knows the term “fake plants,” but how appealing does that sound? I found some super high-quality silk plants I’m stoked about! Let me show ya!
I don’t know about you, but greenery (whether indoors or out) gives me just that little extra bit of skip in my step. It has a fresh feeling, it’s a pop of color, and it adds vertical dimension to the space.
I was a bit surprised by how slick and protective the packaging was. There wasn’t a broken or dropped leaf in the box. Sweet!
The first thing I noticed was that the leaves had a texture and color variation like that of a real plant. If folks who come into my home didn’t already know about my complete inability to sculpt plants into beautiful topiaries, they might just think they were real!
My Silkies Took a Home Tour
I tried them out in a couple other places around the house, and I really love the topiaries on the front table, stairwell and piano alike! They ended up on the front table for now, but I’m sure they’ll make their rounds again in no time.
OK, so here’s why I’m going to veer towards silk plants (fake plants) in the future:
- I won’t accidentally kill them due to not watering them
- They maintain their shape and don’t require pruning
- Water won’t seep out of the bottom of them
- The kids can’t pull the leaves off
- Bugs aren’t attracted to them
- They will succeed indoors or out, due to UV protection and no need for direct sunlight
So, tell me… do you have fake plants, or — let’s not discriminate — real plants in your home? Why did you choose one over the other?
