Here's a challenge: Walk through a farmer's market without getting tempted to buy a succulent. This recent cultural obsession is understandable, but so is the hesitance to actually pull the trigger and buy one. I mean, it's hard enough to take care of yourself. And then adding a plant? No thanks. But then there's some cognitive dissonance because ... succulents. They're unexplainably adorable, and the realization that you couldn't keep one alive to save your own life doesn't change that fact. Luckily, there's a shortcut: Fake succulents! They're pretty inexpensive, and require zero upkeep. Check out a few below and find the one that's most worthy of your coffee table.
