 Caelie Wilkes is a stay-at-home-mom from California who managed to keep a in tiny little succulent plant in excellent condition for over two years.

Only to discover that it was actually a fake plastic plant! She was devastated when she pulled off the pot to find polystyrene instead of roots and mud. The perfect condition of the little succulent wasn't caused by her love and dedication! Poor thing! 

Her original post on Facebook read: 

"I've had this beautiful succulent for about two years now. I was so proud of this plant. It was full, beautiful colouring, just an overall perfect plant.

"I had a watering plan for it, if someone else tried to water my succulent I would get so defensive because I just wanted to keep good care of it. I absolutely loved my succulent.

"Today I decided it was time to transplant, I found the cutest vase, that suited it perfectly. I go to pull it from the original plastic container it was purchased with to learn this plant was fake. I put so much love into this plant. I washed its leaves." "Tried my hardest to keep it looking it's best, and it's completely plastic. How did I not know this? I feel like these last two years have been a lie."

Is that something that could happen to you? 

One can wonder how the woman did not realized that the plant was fake in two years?

According to her new Facebook post, she finally got herself some real plants! We wish her the best of luck with these new REAL plants. :-)
