Do you have real houseplants or silk ones?

I have a mixture. I love the real house plants and I have heard they are good for the air we breath in the house. I forgot what they do, it is something about the oxygen. Maybe you will remember. I love my silk trees in two corners of my house, too. What kind of flowers do you have in your house?

I have a silk plant in one of my bathrooms, and i have silk flowers in the master bedroom, and some fake eucalyptus all over. and then i have all other real ones, such as 3 bamboo plants, one huge aloe, some other tree thing (ha, i really don't know what it's called, but it's getting tall), and 2 phylodendrims (sp?), and 2 thorns of Christ. all of these have been with me for a couple years now, i'm very proud of them...and myself, haha!! the only thing i killed off recently was my african violet. i was disappointed, but i had watered it too much...it got moldy! poor thing!!

I have real house plants all over the house apart from the downstairs toilet. For some reason even though there is lots of light in there they won't grow. So i have a nice fake spider plant on the window sill, a fake ivy on a shelf and a fake grass plant just to cheer the room up.

I prefer only real plants. Inside I don't have any flowering plants. I did have a passion flower plant but it grew so quick it virtually took over the house. I do have some flowering plants on the balcony. I'm not a great fan of artificial plants.

I love haveing real and fake flowers in my house so like you I have both. The silk ones to add color and the real ones to do as you said help with the oxygen the house. Right now I only have 2 lives ones but at one time I have about ten live ones in the house but while I was gone out of state visiting my hubby let them wither and I couldn't save but two. I am wanting to get a few dwarf palm tress for the house next year but since we heat with kerosene I have to be sure they are hardy enough to survive if they get to cold cause to save fuel sometimes we don't heat up the kerosene heater till it is like 35 and under. We bundle up alot..
