Raise your hand if you have a green thumb! Yeah, me neither… but you’d never know it if you came over. My apartment is sprinkled with greenery and flowers that make it feel warm, inviting, and elegant. So what’s my secret? Faux plants!

There are lots of reasons to opt for a faux plant instead of the real thing. It always looks beautiful, requires zero effort to maintain, doesn’t attract unwanted insects, and makes no mess. You’ll be able to have guests over without worrying about allergy attacks, and you’ll never come home to the sad sight of a plant you forgot to water (for a few weeks… oops!).

If you’re new to the faux plant game, here’s a tip: West Elm has some of the most realistic decorative pieces you’ll find anywhere. From ferns to trees and everything in between, you’ll find exactly what you need to add a dose of lush to your space. And right now, you can score this must-have decor for a steal. Take a look at some of our favorite faux picks below, which are all on sale for a limited time only.
