I have a confession: I’m a murderer. Of plants. I have killed SO many fiddle leaf fig trees I should be given a medal of some kind. The only plant I have ever kept alive for a significant period of time is an olive topiary I bought at Brimfield three years ago. Yes, THREE YEARS. It sits next to my sink and I always remember to water it because, well, it’s next to said source of water and my coffee maker. It’s pretty hard to forget. Other than that- no matter how “easy to care for” things are, I kill them. So I have implemented some faux greenery into my own home. At first, it was begrudgingly, as I always prefer real and fresh greens- but it can get really expensive and tedious to replace fresh greenery constantly. Plus, cleaning out a vase of smelly old water you’ve neglected is disgusting.
Faux greenery and plants have gotten SO much better over the years, and I feel like more people are opening their arms to using them. I have a few rules/ tips for using faux greenery in such a way that it’ll look the most natural and fool the most people :)
Here’s a round up of some great options for faux greenery!
