Dead Plants

Buy a dead plant - you don't have to forget to water them anymore
  [vote for,

Fact - plants die when I look after them. I'm just to lazy to bother feeding them. Starting off a vibrant green they slowly and painstakingly become a crisp, brittle brown. Having regressed to their 'natural' household state there they remain until I am finally moved to chuck them. Why not remove this hassle and buy them dead in the first place without having to waste time in the lack of effort of not looking after them.

       one simple step forward: buy them and immediatly chuck them. or don't buy them at all. I do sympathize, any plant in my vicinity drops dead, an anti-greenthumb I guess.

       I try not to apply perfume to any plants that have recently demised. It would be like "I'm sorry that I forgot to water you, here try this...". You can buy smelly dead plants - these have rancid (and probably carcinogenic) odours applied and the occasional spot of artificial colouring. This is not what I require. I want a bog standard dead plant, in a pot, with the bone dry mud. None of these fancy additions thank you very much. I apologise if this was not clear from the idea.

       I love it! Can I order a few dozen dead evergreens for my front lawn to go with my dead grass?
