The Top 10 Best Artificial Plants of 2021

Last updated on July 5, 2021

Looking for the most realistic artificial plants to add a pop of greenery to your home without committing to the maintenance of live plants? These are the best faux plants for you.

Our favorite is this fake palm tree.

These artificial plants are aesthetically pleasing with realistic colors and shapes that mimic real flowers. The plant is great for people with allergies because it doesn’t include any pollen or other harmful allergens found in most shelled plants.

The artificial plants might be visually appealing because of their wide variety of colors. They look generic and mass-produced but may come in an unusual shape. The plants might also come with a more intricate planter than the plastic pot they are seated within.

Takeaway: the best artificial plants are those that look the most realistic. You can anchor them in real dirt to add to this look.

Though generally, they are not as sturdy as real houseplants or have many branches, finding a more realistic-looking plant for an expensive price tag may be possible. This does not mean there aren’t artificial plants that stand up to taller trees or have ribbons hanging from them and providing for great mid-morning light.

Artificial plants also can add nice greenery to indoor spaces without requiring much maintenance.

The Faux Tabletop Plant is the best artificial plant. It is realistic looking, has a nice pop of greenery that goes well with any décor, is very sturdy, and will not fall over even if there are small pets in home-like cats or dogs that may sprawl and play around the plants. The faux plants themselves come in various shapes (taro plant, lotus plant, clover), all green in color, just as they should be to portray real life.

The designer’s option to choosing this type of fake flower over a real flower might be encouraged by its durability since acrylic is easier to clean. It also includes a microfiber polishing cloth that will keep the fake material looking fresh longer than paper towels would, or soap and water might do independently.

Faux Hanging Plant

This is a faux hanging plant that looks good in any decoration project. You can also hang them on your wall, and they will add elegance to your landscape. They come with 12x artificial ivy vines, as well as plastic vine silk leaves. It roughly 7ft long and has 80 leaves which would be about 1-2 inches if you want to compare the size of these leaves. I have not personally seen an English Ivy Plant, and although I am not certain this resembles ones found in nature, the color scheme looks nice. This is an outdoor artificial plant, but it also works inside (beware of water leaking out) for decorations, including flower boxes which may not be enough greenery for some people’s taste.

The plastic vine silk leaves that the ivy hangings vine has are very realistic. However, the hues of green are too dark to be ersatz live plants and can only provide a slight pop of color in an area with a lot of sunlight. With 12x plastic foliage and 80 leaves for decoration, this artificial plant provides customers with lots to work with if they need ornamental greenery but are unable to consider real ones long-term due to allergies or location/climate concerns.

Pros:

– Artificial plant product is lifelike and feels natural. It has many greenery benefits, such as being allergy friendly without fabric, leading to less “pet hair.”

This fake tree is a good substitute for homes that have a bit of colorless flooring. The leaves are professionally crafted, well-shaped, and closely mimic the texture down to the thread work within the veins with natural colors. They are realistically shaped with a nice roughed, twisted appearance which makes them seem real. This mini plant also has two lines of roots on each soil ball, enabling it to pot easier into smaller spaces such as offices or window sills.

Pros: Realistic design and material. Details of veins high quality flexible, so don’t break. Looks nice in office space.

Cons: Brushes easily since it’s plastic.

Fake Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree

An artificial Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree can be simulated and is also cute, even though somewhat expensive. This 71″ high plant easily fits in smaller areas such as offices without taking up much space. The leaves are made of PEVA, and the planter can retain water to keep it looking fresh for a longer time, but that may make people uneasy about how strong the material is to hold up heavy objects on its branches or if moss will grow lichen which makes it dirty over time. Packaging was sufficient enough to avoid damages from transit.

Still, there were no instructions included on where in specific areas should be decorating this plant compared to others within typing range of each other.

They’re versatile and could be styled in many different ways; here are but a few ideas:

With no maintenance requirements, this ficus bush Tree will look beautiful on any tabletop with complementary decor for years of added charm and elegance around your home. Lengthy preparation time makes other similar products less attractive because their roots would always droop down due to not being watered. However, that won’t happen here because there is no water required.

This product is perfect for anyone looking for an artificial plant with no maintenance. It definitely looks real from a distance, so it’s good for your house or office too, as something to liven up the place.

It comes in a traditional round plastic pot that has good height and air holes. It also very easy just to set out and take a bit of time daily to keep it looking nice, so it doesn’t even need much effort on upkeep, so definitely nice if you’re busy as well weeding through the week.

The only disadvantage with such plants is the relatively quick damage done by animals like cats who could climb up and scratch at leaves; unfortunately, there isn’t much that can be done about this design flaw.

Pros: Highly realistic artificial plant to bring greenness to your room.

It also looks very nice and could help anybody who has been apartment shopping but doesn’t have a lot of space.

It works well in a small office so that workers can focus on their tasks without being distracted by an unkempt work-space appearance from their dusty window sill garden outside. They lack enough sunlight to really grow anything worth keeping alive anyway because it’s cloudy all day.

The product has an evergreen color which makes it good for gifting around the holiday season. There is a realistic cut out of what looks like moss in one corner of the pot, though LSP’s leaves are hard plastic. The plant has a blueprint look with a handle to carry more easily and packaging for easy shipping.

Cons: Harder to clean surface; hence will require more effort.
