Faux it till you grow it: 14 IKEA faux plants that I love

Green alert! IKEA FEJKA faux plants are on sale now.

Plants. Essential in a home’s decor but they are not the easiest of housemates to have. Plants are living things after all, and they demand your time and attention to thrive.

So while you’re getting your thumbs green, there are faux plants.

However, not all artificial plants are created equal. Most of the IKEA FEJKA faux plants — the leafy ones — are quite lifelike. If you don’t look too closely. As for the flowers … you’ll need to be more picky with them.

Faux plants can definitely give your home a green boost, especially in darker spaces where it’s impossible to keep anything alive.

You can also keep a few of them faux plants stored away and change them up with the seasons.

These 14 are my favourite picks from the IKEA FEJKA range. What’s more, most of them on sale at the IKEA Summer Sale (USA).

(FYI, the measurements refer to the pot size, not the height of the plant. Click the caption link to view details on IKEA website or purchase online.)
