Maybe the lighting is all wrong in your bedroom or you tend to get a little overzealous with your watering can. Either way, you’ve ended up with yet another dead plant—and the sneaking suspicion that maybe the plant parent life isn’t for you. Thanks to Target’s latest Opalhouse collection, though, that doesn’t need to be the case. Believe it or not, our favorite finds in the launch are the artificial plants.
When you think of fake plants, images of clearly faux fabric leaves and plasticky stems may (understandably) come to mind. But Opalhouse’s faux greenery is shockingly realistic—you might even find yourself forgetting it doesn’t need to be watered. Not to mention, the options go far beyond the standard fern. There are trendy pileas, dotted begonias, and, of course, lots of succulents. No one will guess the lush foliage you’ve amassed doesn’t require the faintest hint of sunlight to flourish.
This isn’t the first time Opalhouse has launched artificial plants—the brand’s faux palm has a five-star rating—but now there are as many varieties as you’ll find at a garden center. So you can transform your home into the indoor jungle you’ve always wanted—and actually keep it that way.
