Spending a little on plants can do wonders for our well-being especially as we are dealing with the current home quarantine situation during the coronavirus outbreak. We all often are prey to thinking artificial plants are too much work; however, in reality, they are an easy and affordable option to jazz things up on a budget. 

Also, there is a lot of research done and significant evidence that being around greenery helps ease off stress, and elevate mood to further improve cognitive function, among many other things. Read on to find some of the many benefits of surrounding yourself with plants for stress and anxiety 



Whether it is a placebo effect or just a natural ability several studies have shown that; just being in close proximity to plants can help you feel calm and heal faster from injuries. Further as artificial plants do not demand a lot of attention they have the ability to help us cherish the fond positive memories, well all yearn from the past experiences of being in a natural setting. 

Enhance cognitive skills 

Although all plants have the ability to help improve well-being, keeping potted faux plants and flowers around your space can substantially improve your creative performance and problem-solving skills.

As a rule of thumb when choosing an office plant is to select something that will blend well and does not need too much attention, read on for our top four artificial plant recommendations. 

  • Aloe vera
  • Whether you are decorating a small or large space. An artificial aloe plant is a great addition to any space. It is a great accessory that can instantly transform a room and make it look larger and more inviting than it actually is.

  • Snake plant 
  • If you are looking for a plant that just looks evergreen almost for a lifetime the snake plant is the best solution. This is also the reason the snake plant is one of the most popular faux plants when it comes to decorating. 

  • Philodendron
  • Philodendron is one of the most loved decorative flowering plants. The beautiful large, green, dark leaves make it an irresistible must have accessory from every space. 

  • Peace lily
  • Peace lily plants have a tropical flavour that fades the boredom in any space. Faux peace lilies are the best addition especially if you have pets or kids as the real thing is highly poisonous. Peace lilies are ideal to be grown in water; so if there is space place them in beautiful water pots as they are often sold in vases without any soil. 

    To help compliment the artificial plants in your space you can use a simple solution: pair the space with some elegant photographs and natural art as a part placebo effect. Hang a few nature pictures to make a surprising difference in the quality of life in your space.
