How to fake it: the artificial plants that look good enough to water

If you love greenery but your house resembles a plant graveyard, skip the garden centre and invest in the new breed of luxury fake plants. We won’t tell...

If ‘how not to kill an Ecuadorian fern’ is your top Google search, you’ll know the heartbreak of being a bad plant lover. Forgetting to water, feed or prune results in planticide. Even orchids and succulents – meant to thrive on neglect – aren’t all that easy. The solution? Faux plants. Not the plastic, shiny versions of old, they’re now ultra- chic and virtually undetectable from the real thing. See if you can spot the fakes here*.

Words: Anita Bhagwandas

*They’re all fake – we bet you couldn’t tell
