Not everyone has a green thumb or the best luck with keeping houseplants thriving or even alive. Also, houseplants can sometimes suffer neglect from our busy lifestyles. It’s no wonder the market for fake plants and flowers continues on an upward trend. Craft and home décor stores offer tempting arrays of artificial foliage for vases, swags, and garlands that look nice and don’t require upkeep. However, nothing compares to the real thing. Imagine when you take your first walk outside in the spring and how you’re struck by the wonders of nature. You can bring the beauty of the outdoors inside and fill your home with lush “real” greenery and vibrant color to enjoy throughout the seasons.

Even if you don’t have a green thumb or the time to care for indoor plants, there are a surprising variety of low-maintenance houseplants to consider beyond the standard foolproof prickly cactus.

*Keep plants out of reach of curious pets. Some plants are toxic to animals.
