Since I started working at home, I’ve noticed something. No, it’s not the insane amount of coffee I drink. It’s the fact my desk is “Boring” with a capital B. Yes, I’ve got some knick-knacks – a hockey puck, some turtles, and a decoration from my Alma Mater – but I’ve been wanting something with a pop of color to really spruce things up. After a while, I started to take inspiration from my friend’s home offices over various FaceTime calls and noticed a few of them had something in common. There was at least one plant on their desk. Even in the dimly lit video, I could see how much of a boost their plants added to their workspace. So, that got me thinking – how could I add some greenery to my desk? That’s when I found the WUKOKU 2pcs 16″ Artificial Potted Plants on Amazon.

Although I love plants, I’ll be the first to admit: I don’t have a green thumb. However, I was able to keep one plant alive for over a week! But then I forgot it at my parent’s house, and now I think it’s dead. I don’t have to worry about that with these plants; they’re artificial and require no watering or direct sunlight. Which is a blessing in disguise – in my old apartment, I had little to no sunlight. This made keeping plants alive impossible since they’d basically be sitting in the dark all day. I also always struggled to remember to water my plants, and I know I’m not the only one. However, it is recommended to wipe the leaves with a cloth every so often to keep dust from building up (which, okay, I can make myself remember to do that).
With everything on my desk, I was a little concerned if I would be able to fit them. I’ve got my laptop monitor, my various knick-knacks, and at least 2-3 drinks at any given time. These plants are a perfect 16”, making it really easy for me to fit them almost anywhere. Right now, I’m thinking of putting one behind my monitor so it peeks out, and the other one next to my hockey puck, since that area is a little bleak.
Other Amazon reviewers also love this product – Rachel Schaprio wrote, “I love having plants around the house, but I have a tendency to forget to water them. I bought this plant to put in a low light area. You cannot tell that it’s fake unless you are up close looking at it. It’s a great size to put on a table for decoration. I would definitely say this was a great buy.”
Fellow reviewer Morgan was in agreement with Rachel, saying, “These are perfect for small shelves and adding a little greenery to your space. I ended up painting the bases with stripes of rose gold, and they look good painted as well.”
If you’re shopping for a cute, but inexpensive way to brighten up your workspace, these plants are the perfect product for you. Fretting about forgetting to water your plants, them not getting enough sunlight, or in my case, forgetting them at your parent’s house, is now a thing of the past.
