What's best for you, real or faux?
Faux plants or real it only matters what your unique personal preference is. If you want to take care of some beautiful plant babies embrace that green thumb but, if you'd rather have the look of lush greenery without the work, then faux plants are for you. I have a mixture of both because I have the sort of green thumb that only works with some plants.
So let's talk faux: There are plastic and fabric plants, and thanks to technology, we have taken big steps away from what faux plants used to be. There are lots of the choices now that have very realistic textures and colors, and when it comes to succulents you really can’t go wrong as they already have rubber-like properties.
Ready to try your hand at a real plant? Start with a Snake Plant, Spider Plant, or Dragon Tree. All three of these are low maintenance and hard to kill. I have had mine for over a year now and they are still alive. Give it a try!
Not only are plants extremely versatile thanks to the thousands of varieties to choose from, they also add color and texture to a room. They can be small enough to accent a nightstand or shelf, they can be big enough to command their own real estate on your floor. Struggling with empty corners in your office space or dinning room? Fill them with greenery and life. These lovely pieces of nature also offer health benefits such as reducing stress and anxiety, help filter the air in your home, and increase productivity.
