Plastic plants need love, too. They don’t, however, need water.
There’s something great about buying a plant, taking care of it and actually having it survive for more than a week or two. So, imagine the shock that one woman must have felt when she realized that a plant she had been caring for and watering for two years was actually made out of plastic.
Caelie Wilkes, a stay-at-home California mom, shared photos of the plant, which does look to be real from the top. Once pulled from the container, however, it’s clearly not alive.
“I feel like these last two years have been a lie,” Wilkes concluded.
