A friend often comes to me with a houseplant problem. Problems like fallen leaves, sad wilting, no new growth. They are usually surprised to hear my diagnosis. That means it’s not a foliage plant. Instead, I suggest bringing a friend who wants some greenery into their living space to bring a fake houseplant for a test drive.
Think about the conditions in which plants grow outdoors. Humidity in the air, natural sunlight and pollinators flying around. Some plants perform better than others in indoor environments, but dry air quality, inadequate lighting, and poor soil cause most plants to eventually die off. It is for these reasons that I am all about the fake houseplant trend.
