Go Green

Do you love the idea of incorporating greenery into your home but can’t keep a houseplant alive? Don’t fret, you’re not alone.

Inspired by the arrival of spring, we are looking at the best ways to bring the beauty of nature indoors without the maintenance.

You no longer need a green thumb to enjoy the colour and ambiance of indoor plants. Selecting the right high-quality faux greenery can give you a lush look — without the watering or fuss.

Many of our favourite stores have a wide variety of artificial greenery which are so realistic it can be hard to tell the difference. Unlike their counterparts who require watering, pruning, potting and re-potting, all these plants needs is an occasional dust!

There are other benefits to choosing artificial over the real thing.  If you have a dark corner or a room that doesn’t get much sun in winter, a fake fern or fiddle will thrive all year round.

It’s also a great way to incorporate exotic plants that aren’t normally keen on our fickle Melbourne weather. By using artificial greenery, you can bring a lush jungle vibe to one room, and desert succulents to another.

Here are our favourite ways to bring life to your home without needing a green thumb.

 

Small succulents

If you don’t have much space or are trying to bring life to a small room, mini succulents are a great way to introduce pops of colour. Perfectly sized for a bathroom windowsill or coffee table, these little plants are a great way to start your greenery journey.
