It's true that cacti are already a tough plant to kill, but the 'Plants You Can't Kill' collection is especially stalwart. That's probably because they aren't real plants at all, but crocheted creations that look incredibly life-like.

Created by artist Shannon Gerard, 'Plants You Can't Kill' offers a way for gardening handicaps to enjoy some greenery without worrying about losing their plants to neglect or bad luck. At the end of the day, they will still look really good on the window sill. On a deeper level, Gerard writes, "Like my other crochet projects, Plants You Can’t Kill are attractive on the surface while also speaking to our human insecurities."
