  • Years a go the fake ones really looked fake! But they are being made more and more beautiful every year. Alot depends on preference of course, but take into consideration that if you have young children or pets that may get into them you may want to keep real ones out of reach or outside on the porch of your weather is cool enough! No matter what kind they are, they bring such a feeling of joy of the holidays!

  • if i were to buy any i would buy real and set them on my porch. my mom has one planted in her backyard, it's huge and it's awesome to see the stems start to turn red and then bloom when the weather gets cold.

  • I like the real ones, but they are so hard to keep healthy. The longest any of time has ever lived is until Easter.

  • Fake because I have little ones and they are poisonous.

  • fake ones. i had real ones and kept them alive as houseplants for years. they even got their color back around christmas time every year. but they were alot of work and didn't look as pretty as when i first bought them. plus now i have a stupid cat that likes to eat everything....i'm sure she would eat enough of the leaves to get a tummy ache

  • So long as they are colorful I don't care real or fake.

  • I like both but have always had neither due to my little children or my dog. I might this year though, now that our dog has passed.
