Artificial Plants – Turning brown thumbs green!!!

Did you know that a Cactus, which is a symbol of durability and endurance could actually die?  I didn’t until I killed one myself.  After my sad state of constant plant killing, I was on a mission to change my brown thumbs green with artificial plants.

 So, you heard it first-hand – I am a murderer.  Not in an assassin kind of way, but more in a “I love plants but I just don’t have green fingers.   In fact, I think that plants are beautiful! Especially living in Durban, I appreciate anything green, it provides a very soothing contrast to life’s hustle and bustle. For years, I had bought plants but the only plant that survives under my thumb is an artificial one.

Artificial plants are useful for so many reasons: –

  • It’s great for those with a busy lifestyle
  • It’s even better if you have naughty children like mine
  • There’s no watering
  • There’s no need for sunlight
  • There are no more muddy spills on my expensive furniture, rugs, and floors
  • No weeds or irregular growth
  • It’s great for allergy sufferers
  • Perfect for homes with pets
  • They last a lifetime
