I love the look of indoor plants. But they hate me.
I have killed their friends. Not from malice. Just neglect.
Gifts of potted flowers shrivveled up when they came to live with me. Cute little herb gardens would hang in a few days before dying. I even killed 'foliage' plants that everyone says you can't kill.
Maybe it’s because I’m used to children and pets. They let you know when they need something. But plants are stuck in one spot and suffer silently.
I considered dried flower arrangements but they seemed brittle and dead and a little creepy.
Then I discovered IKEA fake plants. IKEA has the greatest fake plants ever – nice and green and spiffy. They don’t actually resemble any real plants,either. They just look good. And green.
