I love the versatility of having artificial plants. At one time I strictly only had faux plants in our home! They require zero work to take care of but offer major value as decor in your space.
I now have lots of real plants in our home as well as artificial. The other day I was on the hunt for some more realistic fake plants to add to our space and went to my favourite retailer for artificial plants, Ikea! I found a ton of cuties, some of which we already own, and thought I would share my findings with you.
Faux plants that look real
Shopping for fake plants
When it comes to purchasing artificial plants, you do have to be careful finding retailers that provide good quality options. I have bought lots of faux plants off Amazon and other retailers and when they arrived they looked terrible.
No one could have passed them off as realistic, they even looked fake in a photo (which is saying a lot). I have found over time I keep going back to the same place to get my artificial plants because 1. they are cheap and 2. they look and feel real.
Ikea is my favourite source for all things, and especially for their artificial plants! The prices can’t be beat and honestly they look better then many expensive plants I have bought from other places.
The one exception to this would be my faux plants I have picked up at CB2 back in the day. They also make a really beautiful faux plant, but are pretty pricey.
Today we are going to stick with my top 10 picks for artificial plants from Ikea.
My Top 10 Artificial Plants from Ikea
As I mentioned above, some of the plants we already own and many are new to me. The reviews for these are great, but I always encourage you to check out reviews prior to purchasing just to be extra cautious when buying online.
I would love love love to get the artificial olive tree, and mini monstera. We currently own a ton of them and rosemary faux p[lants from Ikea and love them.The peperomia is also another one I have and a favourite for its size and leaf texture. It’s perfect for styling shelves with.
