It seems we’re perfectly capable of holding down a job, paying our bills on time and even remembering to switch off the hair straightener before leaving the house. But keeping our indoor plants alive? That’s one adult responsibility a lot of us haven’t quite mastered yet.
If you, like us, love the idea of incorporating a bit of greenery into your living space but can’t seem to get the watering schedule down pat or you’re simply not one to give plants constant love and affection, there is a solution.
Artificial plants that look as good as the real deal are a great way to give your home a splash of foliage without the constant upkeep.
And we’re not talking about cheap-looking flowers or vegetation from a discount store – think delicate silk blooms, lifelike leaves, realistic shrubs and convincing cuttings.
When selected carefully, artificial plants can perfectly replicate the look and feel of the real thing.
Here are some great faux plants that require zero attention but will give your home that finishing touch you’ve been looking for.
Mix and match an assortment of high-quality silk flowers and faux foliage to create a stunning centrepiece for your dining table or coffee table. This Country Charm arrangement from Koch & Co incorporates soft peachy pink and white hydrangeas, peonies and roses with draped greenery.
