The Best Artificial Plants That Look Real | Nearly Natural (2024)

Real plants come with lots of work and disadvantages like withering and dying. Realistic faux plants offer you all of the aesthetic benefits (and more) of real plants but without the upkeep. Where do you start when you’re choosing the best realistic fake plants for your home?

This is our ultimate guide to choosing “real” fake plants to decorate your spaces. Your sense of style and interior design will dictate which realistic faux plants are best for your home. At Nearly Natural, we have options for everyone.

Why Choose Realistic Faux Plants?

Before we dive into our best picks for “real” fake plants for your home, we must discuss the elephant in the room. You might be wondering, “Why shouldn’t I just buy real flowers and trees?”

Faux plants come with numerous benefits that real plants just can’t provide. For instance, they’re both maintenance-free and versatile, allowing you to get the exact look you’re going for without sacrificing your time and energy. Also great for parents, those with busy lifestyles and more.

No Planting, Watering, or Sunlight Necessary

With realistic fake plants, you never have to worry about how much sunlight they’re getting or what soil they’re growing in. We curate the best, most realistic fake plants that don't require any upkeep or maintenance.

Customization and Versatile Decor

Faux plants offer more versatility than real plants that have special requirements to thrive. This means you can customize your home decor and aesthetic much more easily with realistic fake plants.

For example, you may not be able to place certain real trees in a room without natural sunlight. If you opt for a Nearly Natural indoor tree, you can place it anywhere you want.

Lifelike Appearance

Our hyper-realistic silk flowers and trees mimic nature’s finest creations. We curate flowers and trees at different stages of maturity to create a more natural appearance. Some of our flower vases even come with liquid illusion, making it look like you’ve placed them in real water.

Cheaper Over Time

“Real” fake plants save you lots of money in the long run. You don’t have to keep repurchasing new seeds, planters, soil, or other accommodations that live plants require. Instead, you can keep our artificial plants for years without worries of fading, breakage, or other problems.
