Top floor of Tekka Mall (recently renamed "The Verge") has a whole bunch of fake plant shops. Mostly flowers here as well though...

The Concourse used to be the place to go, tons of artificial trees on the 3rd or 4th floor. I always wondered why people would be willing to pay so much for fake ones when the real deal is so much cheaper here?

I would not do it but typically for windowless office space.
I always admire companies that put in such places the real things. I guess they have to provide like frequent rotation of the plants or something? Typically office/corridor lights are rather dim. And I am always impressed by all the orchids in Changi airport.

I like having plants, but don't like taking care of them, that's why:)

I bought a couple of fake ones because I wanted them on a windowsill that sits in the sun and real ones died of heat exhaustion (even if I watered them every day they didn't last long). The fake ones have lasted well but even they're starting to fall apart now with the heat. I might get down to the Verge and have a look there (they might be the shops from the Concourse - quite a lot of shops from there moved to the Verge).

Depends on where you want to place the plants at. For living rooms,you can put 6 feet plants like Ficus trees or fountain palm trees. If its for desktops, ferns and small potted plants like peony plant should do the trick.
Best Regards
