Story time.
I’ve had this beautiful succulent for about 2 years now. I was so proud of this plant. It was full, beautiful coloring, just an over all perfect plant. I had it up in my kitchen window. I had a watering plan for it, if someone else tried to water my succulent I would get so defensive because I just wanted to keep good care of it. I absolutely loved my succulent. Today I decided it was time to transplant, I found the cutest vase, that suited it perfectly. I go to pull it from the original plastic container it was purchased with to learn this plant was FAKE. I put so much love into this plant! I washed it’s leaves. Tried my hardest to keep it looking it’s best, and it’s completely plastic! How did I not know this. I pull it from the container it’s sitting on Styrofoam with sand glued to the top! I feel like these last two years have been a lie.

The comments on her Facebook page to this news have been legendary.

  • "Laughed so hard at the story. Well done! That's the healthiest looking fake plant I've ever seen."
  • "Don't let anybody take away your joy. 👍"
  • "Do you want to get married? You clearly qualify".

We have to give credit to this sweet California lady. It takes a big person to be willing to own up to the watering of a plastic plant for 730 days.
