Houseplants have been scientifically proven to boost your mood, so we think everyone should have a plant friend or two around. But we know that not everyone has a green thumb, or an ideal windowsill for a light-loving leaf. Perhaps you have a pet that likes to nibble on fronds, or a busy schedule that leads to bone-dry soil. In any case, live plants aren't an option for everyone. Luckily, the placebo effect of plants works, too — which is why we're ecstatic about The Sill's new collection of faux greenery.
The gardening website, which is one of our go-tos for buying live plants online, now offers 14 varieties of highly realistic fake indoor plants that come in different sizes. Ranging in price from $75 to $345, these aren't your garden-variety (pun intended) waxy models from days of yore. Just keep an eye out: Some of the faux plants are only available for delivery in the NYC Metro area. Take a look at some of our favorites from the collection below, and shop them all here:
