Having plants in your home can make it feel more alive and welcoming. If real live plants don’t work for you, though, you can still get the same vibe by using artificial plants!

Many people think there’s a stigma around having fake plants — they look bad, and they’re not as lovely as real plants, right? Well, nowadays, artificial plants look very realistic.

And although live plants have lots of benefits, they aren’t ideal for everyone. For one, they can give you allergies. For another, they can be temperamental. Plants can be fickle, and they die if you don’t take care of them properly.

The amazing thing about fake plants is that they look beautiful, but you don’t have to take care of them!

You can throw them in storage and take them out when they’re seasonal — all without getting dirt on your hands.

Check out these 14 artificial plants that are sure to make your house feel like an oasis.
