Sure, your jungle of a living space is already thriving with plant-adorned walls, living greens in your shower, and an outdoor space that basically feels like stepping into the tropics. But until it’s more socially acceptable to live in an actual greenhouse, there’s unfortunately only so much sunlit real estate in your home available for living, breathing plants—which helps explain why faux plants and art have grown (not literally, of course) quite the following as of late. And the newest, cutest, trend in the world of bloom dupes includes items that can fit in even the tiniest of healthy homes.

Barcelona-based artist Raya Sader Bujana, mastermind behind Etsy shop Little Ray of Sunflower, is garnering quite the following for her mini faux plants. All her offerings, including monsteras and tall philodendrons in weaved baskets and cacti in terrariums, are handmade from paper (yes, paper!). Plus, she practices an impressive attention to detail, creating veiny leaves and teeny wooden plant stands. In fact, they look so realistic that it’s hard to tell you’re looking at Instagram pictures of dollhouse-size paper greenery and not the real thing.

All of Raya Sader Bujana’s offerings, including monsteras and tall philodendrons in weaved baskets and cacti in terrariums, are handmade from paper.

Bujana regularly adds new batches of items to her Etsy shop, but since it understandably takes a lot of time to craft each tiny model, there are typically only a handful or two available with each restock. The good news? She always makes an announcement on Instagram when they’re ready, which is all the more reason to put those post notifications to good use and have your credit card ready.

Check out 7 mini paper plants that deserve a place in your healthy home.
