Faux Plants or Flowers

Do you like them?

I have quite a few in my house, they have come a long way as in realistic looking.some even feel real.

Do you have any?

Re: Faux Plants or Flowers

Oh I have a few ivy's that are fake but very realistic. I am terrible at keeping real ivy's alive, but these faux ones cascade down very beautifully. I do have plenty of real plants too, and I agree, they add a touch of homeliness!

I have a spider plant and the one in the hanging basket is real Pix.....

The only thing about the faux is they get very dusty....I have some faux orchids as well...they look very realistic.

Iím going to get some faux trailing ivies when Ikea open in Reading. as you say they are very realistic looking.

Re: Faux Plants or Flowers

I am not a lover of fake flowers, although I do agree they make them look much more real nowadays.

I have loads of indoor plants, far too many really. I give some away every now and then when I've got no where else to put any more.

I've got 13 Carnivorous plants, 4 Moth Orchids, 10 African Violets, 2 Christmas Cactus, 3 huge Aloe Veras, and I've lost count of all the Pelargoniums.

Trouble is, lots of them need splitting and/or dividing now, so then I shall have a load more!

I must be stricter with myself and stop collecting so many.

Re: Faux Plants or Flowers

I donít like artificial flowers at all. They are dust collectors and naff!

In fact, l donít really like flowers in the house. If someone brings me flowers, my heart sinks! Flowers are for the garden and should stay there.
I imagine flowers screaming as their stems are cut! I especially dislike Lillies, their smell is awful and l associate them with death.

Have you got the mother in law tongue ones Mups?

I love those...the faux ones look very realistic.

I love African violets, once lockdown is over, Iím hoping to get a nice specimen of one....the leaves are beautiful.

Which is understandable.....I absolutely adore pink lilies, I usually have a bunch on my fireplace,( real ones) but they are so expensive to buy, but they do last for days,
Havenít bought them in a while now, I have a large white faux orchid in their place instead, saving me money.

Pauline, Donít you find the scent of the Lillies overpowering?
...but then, l donít like scented candles or plug-in air fresheners either.
I donít even like seeing artificial flowers on tables in restaurants. I only like the real thing in everything!
