Fact: Houseplants can liven up any room. Fact: Houseplants can be a lot of work! Lucky for us, there are tons of fake options on the market that look just like the real thing. No, seriously, there are. If you buy one, anyone who comes over will be doing quadruple takes trying to figure out if it's alive or cold, hard plastic. Don't believe me? Try for yourself right now.
One plant in the picture above is fake, the other three are real. Can you tell which one is phony? It's hard isn't it? Before I tell you which one, let's break it down plant by plant.
By now, the suspense is probably killing you. So fine, I'll tell you: It's B! Did you get it right?
If you didn't, don't feel bad. It's really hard to tell that's not a real fiddle leaf fig tree. It's got more than 90 reviews, and a 4.6-star rating, with plenty of customers chiming in about how realistic the knockoff is. "Even the dirt looks authentic," said one reviewer. Another person wrote, "I'm picky and always on the hunt for realistic faux plants. This one hits the mark."
So, did you get it right?
