Good quality fake indoor plants?

I'm after some really realistic good quality fake house plants. There are lots of websites but it's impossible to tell if they're good quality or rubbish. I've looked in local garden centres but just didn't like them. Can anyone recommend a specific website? Thank you

I'm looking for things like ferns, not flowers as such.

IKEA??

I didn't like the ones in IKEA, I did go in and look at them. I think maybe my expectation of fake plants is just too high! I can't keep real plants alive though.

What about here Blooming Artificial Plants

I was in Wilkos today and some of theirs were quite realistic, especially the succulents and cacti. Up close they're obviously not real but very convincing from a slight distance

@GreenLeafs


@GreenLeafs have you bought any from there yourself?

Thank you. I will go take a look when I'm next near a Wilkos.

I've bought 3 plants from blooming artificial and they are so good. Very life like and good quality šŸ˜Š

Sorryto be the cynical one:
... don't forget to mention that they are made from plastic and won't be recycled ones they lost their sparkle.

George/Asda online have some large fake plants that are quite realistic

TK Maxx/ Homesense sometimes have some good ones, I've bought a few very realistic ones from there.

Thank you. I will take a look

OP, I ended up back in Wilkos and bought this one for the bathroom - I think it's cute
