I have often wondered why people buy artificial flowers or plants. Maybe there is no place to grow the real thing, Maybe the real thing does not last long enough for real enjoyment. There is also the need for water and sunshine. Once we start the process of getting a real plant or flowers, we have to spend a lot of time paying attention to what the needs are.
I find that the artificial plants or flowers need little attention, just a dust here and there. I can leave my home for days at a time and not have to have someone to check on them and water and feed them. I can place an artificial flower or plant in any space. I do not have to have sunshine to help them grow, I do not have to mark a day on the calendar to remember to water them. For the price I pay for artificial flowers or plants I can get a lot of pleasure seeing the greenery all year around
