Ok.I like artificial plants(the high end ones). I used to work at an artificial plant place..and briefly had my own business making and selling artifical bonsai trees. I still have a couple (high quality) artifical ficus in this place..and a number of smaller 'fake' plants as well. I also have tended to blend them in with live plants..and some people could not tell the difference.
Anyway this place is dark and shady and the only place live plants will grow is in my dining room. I think that if they are not too overwhelming and are quality made and carefully placed that artificial(I am talking foliage here.not flowering) plants like fake ficus are ok..and even desirable.
What do you think?
