Real or artificial plants? Make the right decision!

Perhaps when you go to visit a relative who has plants in their home you like them a lot, and you want to have them in your house too. But of course, that’s when the dilemma comes in: real or artificial plants? Actually, this decision should only be made by you, since if they are real you will have to take care of them so that they do not die and if they are artificial, you will only have to clean the dust.

Of course they are not the same, but both will give you a good feeling of being close to nature. At present there are artificial plants that are very successful and that will allow you to enjoy them as long as you have them in good condition. They are ideal for people with little time or who tend to die of real plants.

On the other hand, real plants are ideal for those people who like gardening and above all, who have time to take care of the plants. Actually, both types of plants (real and artificial) have their pros and cons.

It is important to take all this into account when choosing a type of plants to decorate your home. In case you are not clear about it, you could make a mistake in the decision, And you better be right to be comfortable in your home with the plants you decide to have!

Artificial plants vs real plants

Choose carefully, using real planting is not the same as using artificial planting.

Real plants are very pretty but require special care. On the other hand, artificial plants do not require as much maintenance, but they will lack that natural magic that those that do breathe have. People often wonder which plants are the best options, so it is a good option that you can assess the pros and cons of each of them. It will be useful to you and will help you choose better.

Artificial plants

Artificial plants, as we have advanced above, they are plants that can look very real and that they are made with materials to make it so. They are a very suitable option for people who do not spend much time at home, who travel often … because they do not require watering, or flowerpots, or that you move them because of the solar issue, or that you can …

But of course, this does not mean that they do not need any maintenance … in fact, they do need several:

  • Dusting the leaves and petals
  • Clean with wet wipes
  • Use vacuum cleaner or dry cloth

It is true that in artificial plants you can find some types that having them at home as a real plant would be much more complicated (for example, orchids).

If you don’t know how to choose between one option or another, remember that artificial ones will not bring warmth to your home, that is, they will make you feel that green feeling of having plants, but you will not feel the natural freshness that natural ones offer you.

In addition, artificial plants can even be toxic and flammable, and therefore dangerous. But on the other hand, you must also have patience to take good care of real plants … and artificial ones will not give you bug problems!

Real plants

Although artificial plants are very well made, we cannot ignore that plants that are real will always dazzle more than any artificial plant. Real plants are living beings that transform, that they purify the air, giving you color and vitality in the home.

They are ornamental, medicinal, wonderful … And there are even those that give you edible leaves or fruits. Although it is true that you have to take care of them often, they also give you all their real beauty.

The cares

As we have told you, artificial plants have a care that requires only the maintenance of the material from which it is made. But when it comes to caring for real plants, it’s important that you look for a plant that is easy to care for and that you keep close to a source of sunlight to begin with.

Do not put it directly in the sun to prevent the leaves from burning or wilting too soon.

If you tend to have a bad memory, you can set an alarm on your watch or on your phone to remind you to water the plants at certain times. If despite this it is difficult for you to water the plants, then you can put a bottle full of water upside down on the ground (and with the cap on and with holes in it).

In this way you can drip water without having to always be aware. Although you can also opt for plants that do not require much watering.


It is important that you bear in mind that if despite everything we have talked about above, you still have doubts and do not know whether to choose between real and artificial plants, then you will have to think about the time you have.

As we told you at the beginning of this article, time is of the essence in any case. But of course, even if you have little time, you can value something else: real plants can provide you with intense therapy while you take care of them. It is a connection with the necessary nature that you can have in your home.
