A women was left devastated after she discovered the reason why her succulent plant was so perfect wasn’t down to her dedication.

She even admitted to having a strict watering plan for it, saying she would get “defensive” if anybody else tried to water it.
It was only when she went to re-pot the plant that she realised it was fake.
Caelie told her friends: “I just wanted to keep good care of it. I absolutely loved my succulent plant.”
She said: “I Tried my hardest to keep it looking it’s best, and turns out it’s completely plastic.
