I've purchased five fake plants/trees on Overstock and this is one of the better ones. Though the palace style ficus is the best, this understated little tree nicely fills a corner of my living room. It is very realistic, especially the trunk.. If you are looking for a tree that 's quite full and large and makes a statement, get the palace style ficus, but if you are just looking for a realistic space filler, this one will work very well. Do not expect a miracle here, it is simply a trunk with leaves. You will need a decorative pot to sit it in, and to gently spread out the leaves upon arrival. It arrived intact, and I have not lost one leaf of branch from it since it arrived several weeks ago.
I am well satisfied with my purchase. This is an exceptional product.

I received the box and immediately knew that this ficus was not appropriate for my plans. The base of the ficus could be a bit bigger in circumference and the faux foliage surrounding the base was not comforting on the eyes. After a bit of handyman doctoring...I brought the branches and leaves to life. In other words...go for the 6ft and prepare to invest in a sturdier base. If you insist on purchasing this ficus...get at least three and use them as a back drop. One alone won't suffice.
The tree itself is beautiful, and looks very real. I put this outside on my patio, and the slightest little breeze, it is knocked over. The pot is very small and not that heavy. I now have large rocks around it, and it has still tipped over. I wish they made these tree's and the palms with larger heavier pots,,,
We are very happy with the quality of our tree. It is full and looks very natural.. As others have noted, don't buy this one for the very plain pot it comes in. However, we had a large Mexican pot in which to place it, and once I had fluffed out the leaves, it looked terrific. You can't get anything else like this for the price.
