    some of these things look like my cat would love to use them as a litter box in the winter. Living plants need water and specific sunlight conditions, thay also will create a lot of moisture in your house which will grow mold and be a health hazard, so obviously these are novelty, items and not to be takes seriously. But cute as art pieces.
