The 10 Most Popular Fake And Artificial Houseplants

Are you looking to do a little sprucing around your home but not sure how to get started? How about incorporating some faux-ever freshness into bland, boring spaces with the help of an artificial plant that can instantly evoke a hint of natural beauty. As most (interior) decorators are aware, greenery has a huge impact on our home; not only can it easily transform a space with verdant tones, but it can fill a void space by creating an attractive focal point that would otherwise go unnoticed. And while living, breathing plants can help cleanse air and its pollutants, they also require maintenance and strict diligence to ensure they thrive in their dedicated spaces. However, if you lack a green thumb, invest in an artificial replica that will remain faux-ever fresh and beautiful no matter how little attention or love you give it. If you’re drawing a blank on where to start, today we’re sharing just a few of the most popular houseplants and how you can easily achieve their same lifelike quality with an artificial replica.
