So, you're looking to get a fake plant. There's a lot to look into when it comes to artificial foliage, from budget to style to size. Plants are a huge thing right now, but if you are anything like me and cannot take care of a plant to save your life, investing in an artificial plant is a good way to get the greenery that's still trending in 2019, without the risk of killing something.
Keep in mind that most artificial plants will never look as good as a real plant, but there are a lot of good fakes out there. When looking for a fake plant to add to your home, opt for plants that have less variation in leaf shape, as to disguise any manufactured edges or paint discrepancies. And, when you can, get your own pot.
There's no denying it: plants at this price point can obviously look incredibly fake. But there are some good ones (look for smaller ones) that can fit into nooks and crannies in un-windowed bathrooms, on corner bookshelves, or tucked into a jungle of real plants.

For someone who's just getting into the world of plants and wants to pad their stash a bit, these $40-$50 plants are your solution. Most of the plants in this price range can be overwrought with superfluous decoration, but there are some that really can't be deciphered unless you feel them.

These are the plants you invest in. Bigger real plants will cost less, but you obviously have to maintain them or risk throwing out the decent chunk of change you spent on them. Opting for a large artificial plant that looks just as real as an actual plant for a little bit more money is a sound investment, especially if you have an area of your house that doesn't get much light, but is in need of some greenery.
