What do you see when you look at these plants? We’re not fooling. These plants actually exist.
Take a closer look below.
5 weird and wacky plants that fool the eye:
1. A plant from Mars?
This cosmic-looking painted cactus comes in an array of colors, such as dusty rose, hot pink, turquoise blue, silver and more. They’re like decor for the indoors when you’re looking for a houseplant.
How fun is that!
2. See the tiger’s face?
When you’ve selected your perfect plant, here’s how to care for your orchid.
3. Peacock with red feathers?
This red anthurium stands out like a small peacock with fiery plumes. It also feels like plastic, but we promise, it’s not fake.
To take care of a red anthurium, give it indirect light and water only when the soil is dry to the touch.
4. Baby nestled in a cocoon?
Peace lily petals look like they’re swaddling babies when they first emerge.
They’re not only pretty, but offer so much more. See how they’re useful in your home.
5. Weird growth?
These cactus plants look strange, but they’re actually grafted cacti (and the heads are not flowers). You see, the head of the original cactus plant is cut off. Then, the mutant-looking flower – officially not a flower – comes from another cactus plant. It’s a growth that fell off because it did not photosynthesize and get chlorophyll, an essential ingredient to turning green. Instead, makers grafted the top to different cacti to create one plant. Strange, but true.
To take care of a grafted cactus, keep it in a window that gets some sun. Water sparingly.
