As someone who could kill a plant by just looking at it, I wish I gave fake plants a try sooner. Even though I always wished I could fill my apartment with plants for the #aesthetic, I always assumed artificial plants would be too tacky and ugly. But guess what? There are a ton of realistic, beautiful options out there—no upkeep required. (Well, sometimes they need a good dusting. But it’s a lot easier than keeping a real plant alive.)
Because the type of fake plant you get depends so much on personal preference, I’ve rounded up the best places to buy fake plants so you can browse yourself. But I slipped a few recommendations in there for good measure, too. Below, find the best places to buy fake plants, from succulents to flower arrangements.
I’m biased because most of my fake plants are from here, but let me just say: I am pleased. (You can check out my little office corner here.) World Market has two places you can get artificial plant offerings: its faux succulents, botanicals, and flowers section and its faux potted tree section. Just in case you really want to go all out.
Plant parents love modern plant company The Sill for its living plant offerings, but it has an impressive collection of artificial plants, too. Many of their faux plants have multiple planter options so you can customize your favorite fake plant to fit your decor.
Like most things at Wayfair, its fake plant section is robust and often affordable. Like, a rabbit hole you could fall down for hours. If you’re on the lookout for a very particular type of planter to fit perfectly into your space, you’ll probably find it here.
If you’re someone who always gets sad when your fresh flowers start to wilt, check out West Elm’s collection of floral bouquets. Their pots and planters are also consistently gorgeous, so if you’re usually a fan of West Elm’s decor, their fake plants won’t be an exception.
Afloral is dedicated entirely to what they call “permanent botanicals.” Whether you want to build an entirely custom bouquet of silk flowers or stock up on lifelike potted plants, they’ve got your back. Plus, they have wholesale options for florists, event planners, and interior decorators.
You probably don’t need me to tell you that Amazon has a solid selection of fake plants because, well, Amazon has a solid selection of everything. You’ll find a mix of highly-rated affordable and upmarket options, many of which are available on Prime for fast shipping.
You can shop Target’s collection of faux potted plants, succulents, flowers, and grasses by size, just in case you’re shopping for a small space or want to go big or go home. True to the beauty of Target, many of the options are affordable compared to some of the other options on this list.
On top of its pretty standard faux plant offerings, Pottery Barn also has a wide selection of branches, stems, and flowers for you more creative types who might want to make their own arrangements. You can find those in a separate section here.
As you might imagine, Home Depot has some more intense faux plants (fake hedges! fake topiary trees!) but they have plenty of low-key indoor options, too. You know, just in case you’re not going full faux landscaper.
You’ll have no trouble running into a good deal on Overstock, given their frequent sales. You might say that they have an overabundance of options to suit pretty much any decor need.
