I'd love to be a plant lady (I hear this is the new cat lady!) but there's one problem...I can't seem to keep my plants alive. No matter how hard I try, I was not blessed with the gift of a green thumb. Instead, my house is filled with fake plants so that I can enjoy the greenery without the constant fear of killing them. I also have cats, and it's difficult to find plants that are nontoxic to pets, and they generally leave the fake plants alone. Fake plants can be really beautiful, so I've rounded up a variety of fake plants with the potential to make your home look like it's part of the outdoors! 

 1. This faux plant is easy to shape and customize to your desired liking because of the wire leaves. (above)

No. Just, no.
Faux plants are just dust catchers, and do nothing to improve the air quality of your home. And studies have shown that there are positive benefits from caring for a living plant.
