Faux Fiddle Leaf Fig

A real Fiddle Leaf Fig takes a lot of maintenance to keep it alive, including lots of sunlight, water, and a warm climate—not to mention they can cost a pretty penny. Save your sanity (and any money that might be wasted on a dying plant) by decorating your home with this faux Fiddle Leaf Fig tree instead. Its leaves and trunk resemble the real deal so perfectly your guests won't be able to tell it's fake. Bonus: It comes pre-planted in a stylish woven planter.

Faux Desktop Succulent

Succulents are a desert plant, therefore they don't require a lot of attention. A plant that only needs to be watered once a week sounds easy enough, right? Don't be fooled because they can be easy to forget about! Thanks to this faux desktop succulent you can enjoy the pretty aesthetic without thinking twice about whether you've watered it or not. And this one comes in a glass pot filled with river rocks for a natural look.

Price: $29 (usually $33)

Faux Olive Tree

Olive trees grow very slowly and can take years to get to the size you want. Skip the wait and place this faux olive tree in your entryway to greet guests as they walk in the door.

If you'd like to switch the pot for something more extravagant you're able to repot it just like a real tree.
