Today's faux plants are truly lifelike, with shapes, textures and colors that often make them difficult to distinguish from the real deal. 

They're ideal in indoor or outdoor locations that are difficult to water, hard to reach or have little sunlight.

Mid-range to premium artificial plants are an obvious edge over cheaper items. 

Premium quality artificial plants typically do not have odor, are non-toxic, pet-safe and allergy friendly.


In fact live plants can sometimes be harmful to animals, whereas faux can be the safest choice.
