To all the plant parents who can’t stand to go plant-less in a dark room, a hard-to-reach corner, or because of small children or pets, we have you covered. We’ve taken some of our favorite plants and turned them faux. Because we believe that plants, in all forms, make people happy.

How to set up your faux floor plant in four easy steps:
  1. Unpack your faux plant and planter. Recycle the cardboard packaging.
  2. Gently finesse and bend your plant’s leaves into place. Even out the foliage on all sides of your faux plant so the weight is evenly distributed.
  3. Put your faux plant into its planter and add the biodegradable packing peanuts around its base. If you want your plant to sit higher in the planter for aesthetics, you can add a layer of peanuts before adding the plant.
  4. Top the biodegradable packing peanuts with preserved moss for a finished look. Your plant is ready to display!

About The Sill's faux plants:

Our packing peanuts are made from organic starch and are 100% biodegradable. They are FDA compliant and decompose in water leaving no toxic waste. Using biodegradable packing peanuts and preserved moss to fill in your faux plant’s planter helps give the illusion of potting soil below the surface yet keep your faux plant lightweight to move around your space!


Your faux plant was made with the best materials available to create a high quality, long-term addition to your home. If at any time you’re ready to relinquish your faux plant and do not have another home for it, please contact us and we can help you find a local retirement or nursing home, school, thrift store, charity, or other community organization to accept it as a donation.
