It’s no surprise that plants become The Thing to buy right now. Being able to consistently take care of something that needs water and food and sunlight is a huge upside to this work from home lifestyle most of us have adopted. But once we’re heading back into offices, what happens to that greenery if you can’t keep up the schedule? Or, what if you’ve found out that a green thumb doesn’t come naturally for you? Well, you can fake it. Some brands have found the secret to creating real-looking plants that require no effort in keeping them green (save for a little bit of dusting) and we’ve rounded up some of the best, from budget-friendly to statement-making investments.
Winlyn Mini Potted Plants
These plants are great for adding greenery to a desk or table that doesn’t get any sunlight. The set features three distinct faux plants (eucalyptus, boxwood, and rosemare), plus grey, concrete-like pots for some added decor.
One 5 foot Artificial Silk Bird of Paradise
If you want to go big or go home, this is the one for you. Made from soft, durable silk, this bird of paradise is the perfect plant to put in the corner of any room to add some visual interest. It’s 6’ tall and can easily fit in any decorative pot you want.

This artificial fig tree comes in its own simple, neutral woven pot so it can be placed anywhere in your home. It stands at about 3’ tall and is great for an entryway or living room.
A trailing plant is the perfect option to go faux. The leaves and vines can be moved to your liking and the cream-colored pot will blend in with any decor. The white variegation of this pothos is sure to draw compliments.
