Why Are Sansevieria Plants Awesome?
Snake plants are fantastic, well, because they look cool. Horticulturists love their slender, long, wavy leaves with a variegated pattern, making it indeed a unique plant. Although, in contrast, all plants have their charm and charisma, the Sansevieria stands out because of its leaves. The vertical foliage differentiates itself from the garden, and non-plant parents always ask, what plant is this? They're relatively easy to grow, but if you have a puppy, cat, or a baby, it can become a hazard; fur babies and real babies tend to be curious. But luckily, you can still join team faux with a faux snake plant. Some of our artificial snake plants are "real to touch," meaning they're manufactured using a unique process to make them indistinguishable from the real thing. Or, to be more dramatic, our team always asks, is it real or Nearly Natural? Of course, you can't go wrong with a maintenance-free, faux snake plant.

Feel confident knowing you're receiving a high-quality faux tree at a great price, back to how to decorate with fake snake plants. We recommend using an artificial snake plant to fill a bare corner in your house. For example, many people enjoy adding it to baskets to elevate the look and add more height. When adding it to a basket, stuff the basket with newspaper to boost it, then you can cover it with moss or faux rocks. Think about which variegated pattern you like best; there are two types of artificial snake plants to choose from; one has yellow edges around the leaves, the other is more green.
Decide which one you like better; there's no wrong answer. If your space is more neutral and has soft colors, you might be turned off by the yellow, but we recommend going with a pick that you like. Once you decide on color, consider which size plant you want. Ranging in size from 12" to 74", you have the chance to decorate in any space you wish. Think about measuring your area to ensure you buy the right size for you to avoid returns.
