  • Real is the way to go. They really are not that hard to take care of. A little water twice a week and every two monts put a little vermipost on the soil and I think you will be very pleased. This comed from someone who has an avacado tree growing in the den. And I live in Idaho. The only one I have ever seen in this town. Plus real plants look a lot better. And it shows company that you are careing and nourishing.

  • I like real in most of the rooms. I like that they are living things that change, they also are good for the air. But in my guest bathroom, high up over the toilet, I have two hanging baskets of green silk plants. They are natural looking, they hang up and down over the sides of the baskets. They are unruly looking, and they add a nice bit of green color to the area. I also have some variegated leaves, so it isn't all green. Some ferns, some ivy. The nice thing is they are no maintenance. If I notice them getting dusty I take them down and clean and rearrange, but I only have to do this maybe once a year, since they are overhead, and you can't see the dust.
