Amazon Finds : Faux Plants, Greenery, & Botanicals

Amazon Finds : Faux Plants, Greenery, & Botanicals - roomfortuesday.com Friends… I’m a LIVE plant type of person, but ever since moving into our new home, I’m struggling to keep anything alive (even low light plants, argh). Part of me is tired of wasting money on plants that survive a couple months, increasingly look sad with time, then die. It’s kind of a depressing cycle. The worst part is- I consider myself to have a green thumb. My outdoor plants are thriving and have no problem here! Anyway, I’m caving and I’m going to test out some faux plants because I’m trying to scatter more greenery & botanicals around this place in an effort to add “life”. Click through to see the ones I’ve been saving, if your environment also isn’t ideal for keeping plants alive, or if you have a black thumb… no matter the circumstance, I’ll report back with my favorites once they arrive.

Amazon Finds : Faux Plants, Greenery, & Botanicals - roomfortuesday.com This is really my first venture at faux plants, because as I previously mentioned- real, live plants have always been my jam. Well.. challenge accepted! I set out to find the best faux plants and of course I started with Amazon, because why not try to save some money and put my free prime shipping to use? Here is one last sneak peek of the kitchen before the reveal on Monday, but would you believe that greenery is faux? It is! See- it’s not all bad.

Amazon Finds : Faux Plants, Greenery, & Botanicals - roomfortuesday.com This is what I came up with…

Click directly on the plants & botanicals below to shop!

I ordered #1, #6, and #7. I’ll be sure to report back with my thoughts! My friend Jenny just used #12 in her gorgeous sunroom makeover and that tree looks really giant, convincing, and amazing overall!

Amazon Finds : Faux Plants, Greenery, & Botanicals - roomfortuesday.com The fishtail palm below is also faux… remember it from Emily’s kitchen? You can find it here, and although it’s not an “Amazon Find“- it gives me hope that there are seriously realistic faux plants out there to be found- that look just as good as the real thing.

Amazon Finds : Faux Plants, Greenery, & Botanicals - roomfortuesday.com You can shop more of my favorite plants, planters, garden things, flowers, and botanicals using my Amazon storefront… along with lots of other curated finds! Definitely check it out if you haven’t visited yet. I’m just getting back into the swing of things over here after returning from vacation, but check back tomorrow for a new Monthly Moodboard, and next week is going to be a BIG one for the kitchen. I can’t wait to share the finished space with you!

    My thought: If you don’t keep up the dusting or cleaning the faux plant, it will become a bigger nuisance.

      I guess I would argue that you still have to dust, clean, and water live plants… so I do think faux is much less work, BUT- I just miss having greenery of some sort and it seems like nothing will live here. I’m hoping the “something is better than nothing” philosophy will give me my plant fix :)

    Oh, the slow death of plants! It’s dismal. I have the added difficulty of looking for cat-safe plants, but I definitely found one that’s happy in my north-facing living room! Have you tried a prayer plant? It’s got beautiful red veining and chartreuse accents! My strategy is to buy a tiny $3 plant. If it lives, I get excited. If it dies, meh. I do think some of the faux plants these days look awesome. Welcome home, btw! Time for a monthly moldboard already? Summer is flying!☹️

      I like that strategy… buy the little, cheap ones and see how they do! I’m going to give that a go along with my faux options. Thanks for the tip! I’ll also try the prayer plant- I haven’t had one of those before. Wish me luck :)

    Grrrr. Autocorrect. MOODboard. What in the world is moldboard, anyway?

    I feel you, Sarah. Out of the eight beautiful succulents I had, only the two sansevierias and a Thanksgiving cactus are left. The others all died, I believe because of spider mites in a new bag of organic cactus soil I used. I wanted to cry. Thank you for the group of faux plants you feature here, since I have some empty pots on hand and I think faux babies are the way to go right now. Cheers and welcome home from your road trip…for a well deserved rest. Cheers, Ardith
