Indoor Decor: Add Carefree Greenery to Your Life

I was sent a free artificial plant product by Plantscapes, Inc. for this review. All opinions are 100% my own. 

I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned this before, but I’m really bad at keeping plants alive unless they’re edible. I’ve got three gorgeous tomato plants out on my terrace right now that are thriving, but I’ve also got a mostly dead cyclamen sitting on an end table that I’ve either under watered or over watered, I don’t even know! I guess my brain only cares about food. Ha!  But I do love the look of plants in my home: they’re beautiful and help me relax. What’s a lazy girl like me to do?

So when Plantscape, Inc. offered to send me a sample of their product to review I leapt at the opportunity! Plants I’ll never have to remember to water? Heck yeah!

Founded in 1974, Plantscape Inc. is a leading national interior landscape firm based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We have over 40 years of experience in offering a diverse set of specialty services in landscape planning and design, landscape architecture, trees installation, plant service and maintenance programs and commercial décor. Our team of professionals have decades of experience in designing interior and outdoor landscapes using live plants and trees, especially tropical plants.

Plantscape, Inc. offers commercial interior landscaping services as well as their new artificial plant division, Commercial Silk Int’l. I was thrilled to find succulents on their retail website. I even kill succulents, can you imagine?

My package arrived in about a week’s time, and was exceptionally packed. The two succulents I received came in a large sturdy box and the bases were set firmly into a thick bed of styrofoam. They were even strapped in to make sure they wouldn’t tumble around in the box! Upon pulling one of the succulents out of the packaging I was immediately impressed by the weight. Each one of these babies weighs in at over 3 lbs, so I’m confident that I can leave these out on my terrace without the fear of them being blown over by wind.

The ‘plants’ themselves are set in a ‘pot’ that looks just like driftwood, and unless you get very close or get your hands on it (it’s cool to the touch like concrete) the illusion is complete. On Sunday I had my girlfriends over for brunch and one didn’t even know it wasn’t real until she had it in her hands!

Overall I am extremely satisfied with my new succulents! I have the utmost confidence that they’ll never turn brown and die because I neglected them or cared far, far too deeply for them. The best part is they even offer interior landscaping for businesses, aaaaand can make CUSTOM products! You can find out more here. So if you’re interested in landscaping services, interior landscaping, or grabbing your own artificial plants, definitely head over to Plantscape, Inc. and check them out!

Do you like plants around your house? Artificial or live? Is your thumb as brown as mine? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I totally get this. I put impatiens and begonias etc outside and remember to water them all spring and summer with no problem. But somehow I never remember the inside plants and if it weren’t for my husband they’d all be dead. This is a great idea and they look really good in your pictures!

  2. I have a green thumb for only certain plants! Right now I’m rather proud that I’ve managed to keep a Christmas cactus alive and well for about 6 years now. I actually remember to feed it and water it, and it’s grown! The succulents you received are beautiful!!

  3. I am death to houseplants! I even kill cacti and aloe vera. Like you I can sometimes keep food plants alive (I was overjoyed to notice the first tiny pepper on my windowsill plant yesterday). I would love to have plants around the house.
