Let Rooms Bloom All Year With Fake Flowers
SucculentsSure, the genuine ones are low-maintenance. But for chronic overwaterers (you know who you are), things can get prickly fast. Give yourself a break and stick to these fakes.
What to look for: These “plants” should feel supple and have plenty of leaves (think 8 or 10 spikes on an aloe plant, for instance). Avoid super-shiny versions; the best ones have a matte finish, achieved by applying latex followed by a dusting of talc. Inspect leaves for shading; many real plants are “light green in the middle, with the edges tinged burgundy,” says Wood. Potted succulents start at $15.
- Place succulents on a coffee table. Low, flat plant varieties make the best impression when viewed from above, says James.
- Display them in a natural habitat. Line a decorative plate with gravel or river rocks and place a succulent on top.
