-And I thought it is fake.

Since it is the first Sunday of the month, I drove the car with my sister and son to participate in the holy sacrifice of the mass at 9:30 AM. There were some circumstances that made the Sunday worth remembering, and one was the balloon of a child that went up to the big rotating fan, and since the balloon is made of hard plastic (the shape is a minion), it kept on touching the fan blades but it never burst, and people inside the church laughed and clapped their hands. The mass has not started yet when the balloon flew. When the mass ended at 11 AM, my sister thought of treating us lunch. We had to search for a restaurant or food store but many of them were full. Then my son said we can try a restaurant where he and his 2 female friends would eat. So, we went in Anne’s bar and grill restaurant. On the table, I was mesmerized with this green mosaic-leaf arrangement plant and I uttered it is plastic or fake, since there was no soil underneath but pebbles. My sister said “No, it was a true plant”. LOTUS- that was what my sister said. I doubted, so I asked the waiter. He said “Yes, Ma’am, that plant is real!” …And I thought it is fake. Hmmm!

@computerguy1980 It's enough to remove a leaf and to place on the soil and a new plant grows.

Its a rose succulent or echeveria. They looked fake but its real. They belong to family of cactus. Some of them turned red when exposed to sun. Its great for indoors and outdoors too.

yes, it is also succulent, and if we don't feel it, we will presume it as plastic.

It's lotus? And here I thought lotus only grow in the water. I still have lots to learn. Is there water underneath the pebbles?

I can see that it is real, my dear. It has the features of a real plant , like the thickness and the foggy type appearance.

@computerguy1980 I like the white color as well, it is a symbol or purity. I think it comes in a variety of colors and each one has a different representation in Indian culture.

@ridingbet They don't grow much. I have mine in a pot in the house. They wouldn't like ponds as the environment needs to be dry.

It is nice. I believe that your thinking that it is fake but turned out real is better than the other way around. Oftentimes we think that something is real only to be proved wrong. Lol got too serious
