Honestly, we aren’t green thumbs. Don’t get us wrong, we want to be, but even our cacti are looking a little sad — and wait, weren’t succulents meant to be easy? On the other hand, when’s the last time you ever saw a fake plant and were blown away by its beauty? Truth be told, we’re always side-eyeing that tired-looking vase of dusty plastic flowers by our aunt’s side table. Where’s the happy medium when you need it? Enter: Slightly Browning Fake Plants.

In their own words:

“Don’t fool yourself. Don’t try watering it. And don’t you dare go out and buy another succulent. Face it: you can’t take care of plants. No one can. But everyone should look like they can—at least at a “B” level. No one deserves the leering eye of the gardening leisure class, judging your substandard horticulture, your humiliating lack of southern exposure.”

Basically the team behind Slightly Browning Fake Plants give you fake plants that actually look like you’re doing all right at keeping your plants alive. Not great, but still, they look real. And they aren’t dead, which one would argue, is the most important part of plant-keeping. With names like, “2 week vacation,” “Suck-ulent,” and “The Freelancer,” this is the plant all millennials want need.

See this plant below? Not real.

If you’re kinda into the idea, so were a lot of other people. We wish we could say you can get your very own right here, but all the plants are sold out. That’s right, at $45 a pop, the nine types of plants on offer are completely sold out. Fingers crossed for a restock.

Our only concern is the sustainability factor of these plants. If production does damage to the environment, only to replicate an existing thing that y’know, provides us with clean air, then we’ve got ourselves a dilemma.

Damn. Does that mean we’re just going to have to start watering our plants?
