Just a disclaimer… artificial plants will still likely look fake up close. Some plant varieties look better as fake plants than others so bear this in mind when choosing which ones to buy.

Generally speaking, when it comes to fake plants, the reality is… you get what you pay for! If you want them to look real, you might just need to fork over that extra cash to get a really good one. On the plus side though, at least you know it won’t die on you πŸ˜‰

1. Temple & Webster

Hands down, our choice for the best place to buy artificial indoor plants is Temple & Webster. From the usual monstera, fiddle leaf fig and orchid options, Temple & Webster has the biggest range of artificial indoor plants. We even spied a few full-blown trees in their range, too!

2. Early Settler

Another top destination to buy fake indoor plants is Early Settler β€” especially for country or provincial style interiors. They have an amazing range of orchids, hydrangeas and other plants that fit traditional style homes to a T.

4. Artificial Plant Shop

Well… the name pretty much speaks for itself! The Artificial Plant Shop has an impressive selection of fake plants including cactus, bamboo, flowers and even vertical gardens. Their ferns, like the one below, are some of the best we’ve seen!

5. Bed Bath N’ Table

Good looking (fake) plants without the maintenance! Shop the range from Bed Bath N’ Table and you’ll find some great trailing plants, ferns, flowers and that sweet potted gum below.

For a more budget-friendly range of fake indoor plants, take a look at IKEA. There are a couple of dodgy ones in the mix, but we still spied a few goodies. And for the price, they’re pretty great, which is why they made our list.

7. Freedom

Freedom has an impressive range of artificial plants, but our faves were their large range of flower stems and sprays. They stock quite a few varieties we hadn’t spotted anywhere else. And they often have sales if you want to hold out and nab yourself a bargain.
