The aesthetic of an indoor plant can improve personal well-being and add a nice smash of personality to any room. Come winter though, some plants struggle. There is a lot to consider in choosing the right plant to be a houseplant for winter. While a premium faux plant has no requirements, if you go with real, there’s a lot to look at.


1 – Where Is Your Plant From?


The environment where your plant would naturally thrive is the sort of environment you should want to duplicate in your home. A tropical plant, for example, is different from a succulent. If a flat or home is not capable of producing the conditions for a plant to survive, it’ll be an uphill battle trying to keep it alive. 


2 – Will It Fit Your Lifestyle?


A plant may not fit into your lifestyle and require more care than time you have to dedicate to it. When a plant that needs to be watered every day is not watered regularly, its appearance is going to suffer. If you are away a lot, there may not be very many indoor plants you can have. That said, an artificial plant can work as a houseplant, as an alternative.


3 – How Much Light Does Your Space Get?


Some plants don’t need a lot of light while others do. How much light your space gets matters. Whether it’s direct or indirect lighting matters. You may have to buy an artificial light source to ensure a plant that’s needy is getting what they need to stay healthy. This can be particularly frustrating as not all properties have adequate lighting for plants.


4 – What Is Your Home’s Temperature?


This can be winter’s biggest killer for plants. Temperature matters. If your property struggles to stay warm through the winter, that’s going to be a huge problem for some plants. Temperature that fluctuates and that isn’t consistent could put undue stress on a real plant. A fake plant is an alternative that doesn’t carry such risks.


5 – How Humid Is Your Space?


Humidity is another consideration that needs to be made for a real plant. In winter, the air dries out. There isn’t very much way around this other than to set up a humidifier. In some homes, however, you may need a dehumidifier to bring down the amount of humidity. This all depends on the type of plant you have.


6 – Is The Plant Safe For Pets And Children?


Some plants are very toxic if ingested by a cat or dog, or by a young child. While you can still have these plants and keep them out of reach, if they hit the ground and someone eats a leaf, it could be an emergency room visit. Be sure to buy pet-friendly plants. Keep in mind that all faux plants are non-organic, non-toxic, and pet-safe.


Is A Fake Plant Easier?


A premium artificial plant does not take any special care to keep looking its best. Light and humidity don’t matter. Temperature and time of year don’t matter. Come winter, a faux plant is the best choice for greenery that is easy to take care of.
