Have you ever been tricked in times when you took the fake things for real? Oh no! I’m not talking about friendships.. however, if that might be the case for you…. let’s continue I was talking about plants and flowers made of plastic or other materials. oftentimes they may look so real that we might end up watering them thinking they are blooming like in paradise.
When in fact you know very well you are a horrendous plant caretaker ( Hey! don’t take it too personally)
A woman named Caelie Wilkes found out just how convincing fake plants can be when she discovered that she had been caring for an artificial succulent for two years—the whole time thinking it was alive.
The story went viral as Wilkes explained her heartbreaking discovery. She stated, “I was so proud of this plant,”. “It was full, beautiful coloring, just an overall perfect plant.” Wilkes went as far as to develop a watering plan for it while it sat in her kitchen window. After finding it the “cutest vase,” she decided it was time to transfer the succulent. It was in trying to move the dirt that she realized the truth behind her “perfect plant.”
I mean she isn’t to blame for not noticing the plant looks oddly very real, only to find out that the plant she so ardently watered was glued to a sand foam. “I put so much love into this plant! I washed its leaves. Tried my hardest to keep it looking its best, and it’s completely plastic,” Wilkes lamented. “I pulled it from the container it’s sitting on styrofoam with sand glued to the top! I feel like these last two years have been a lie.” she wrote.
Due to this succulent lamenting Home, depot reached and send to her a variety of real plants to have in her home.
Considering her love and hard work for the fake succulent, taking care of her real ones should be bliss.
