Fake plants are rising in popularity. Things that used to scream “plastic” and looked so fake they became an eyesore, have come a long way. Fake plants now look more realistic and aren’t just another decoration gathering dust in people’s homes. It’s one reason plants in general have become more popular over the last few years. However, not everyone has the touch to take care of real plants, so modern fake plants are a great option for anyone not blessed with a green thumb. Here are a few other reasons why you should consider assembling a plastic bouquet.

No Maintenance Required

Fake isn’t always better, but when it comes to taking care of plants, fake ones are much easier than real ones. You don’t have to worry about watering fake plants, repotting, cleaning up after them, and more. Fake plants simply require you finding the perfect place in your home and leaving them there until you get sick of looking at it. Real plants require watering, sunshine, clean-up, repotting, soil, and so much more.

Worth the Splurge

The fake plants your grandmother had in her home were legitimately cringe worthy. You could tell from miles away they were fake. Its “leaves” shone so bright that they couldn’t come close to resembling something real. However, thanks to the huge surge in plant popularity, fake plants have evolved a great deal to be much more realistic. That means you can get all the benefits of a real plant, without any of the effort. Sounds like a win-win situation, doesn’t it?

Great Value

If you’ve ever gone plant shopping, you’ve likely found yourself in awe of the prices. Some real houseplants can easily cost $300, and that’s for just one of them. Fake plants give you the opportunity to have a similar looking “plant” for much less. This means you can buy more plants, which will make your home feel much more comfortable. Not to mention, a fake plant will live forever, unlike the $300 real one that will last only as long as you can keep it alive.
