The tree is gorgeous - even better looking than the ad here! The packaging was great, and there was no damage to the box or the tree. It took me about an hour to spread out the branches because I kept playing with them. I put the pot into another larger pot and filled it in with dirt for extra weight, then put that into a basket. It's in a corner of my living room where a live tree wouldn't get enough light, and looks stunning - exactly what I was hoping for! Can't say enough good things about this outstanding product!
I have shopped for 2 years for a realistic-looking ficus, to no avail. I am very picky! I was pleasantly surprised & impressed when it arrived. My children thought it was real! Great value for the price! I did place it in a larger, decorative container, as the original one is unattractive & small, but a FABULOUS purchase!
I'm very pleased with this purchase. I was concerned that a 6-foot tree in my small living room would be too large, but it's perfect next to a corner window. It arrived in very good condition with no leaves missing or broken off in the box. I've taken a bit of time to adjust the branches over the last week - a tweak here and there a couple times a day when I walk by - and now it looks perfect! It did have a rather funky damp odor the first couple days, but it's now fine. Highly recommend!
Overall we are pretty happy with this purchase. The tree looks nice in our living room and our only complaint is that the leaves look very dull and don't have the glossy sheen of a live ficus. On the other hand, I'm glad that the leaves aren't SUPER shiny where it looks totally fake! The tree trunk looks very life-like and the size was as described online.
We were pretty disappointed with how this item was shipped by Overstock and fortunate that the tree wasn't totally destroyed en route. It appeared to have just been tossed in a box (not bagged well) that was not custom for the item and the box basically fell apart. All the moss had dumped out of the bucket and the box was barely holding together when we found it at the front door. I'm not sure how much of the blame should go to Overstock vs. FedEx, but we were disappointed with how this was shipped and handled.

This tree is wonderful looking. After 3 years of a REAL Birds of Paradise plant that finally died, we decided to replace it with a fake tree. After a few months of checking local stores, we found some on Overstock to our surprise. We ordered this tree and it arrived in a few days. It looks great. I put the base in the actual planter pot that my birds of paradise was in and covered it with white river rock. Then I put a string of lights it in. The tree naturally fluffed out after a few days. This is a great bargain and looks awesome in the corner of my living room.
This is my second silk ficus from Overstock. The first one was lovely for my larger space, but this one has an even better silhouette and distribution of leaves which suits my smaller space. The trunk is as pictured and the tree itself is light enough to move easily but not so much that it tumbles over. I put mine in a terracotta pot that measures the same at the inside bottom as the circumference of the bottom of the container the ficus is "planted" in. That works really well to keep the tree stable and natural-looking. These trees look their most natural in sunlight, so position them where they get bathed in light, natural or spotlight.
Love the tree, however the box arrived with the tape split and the pot was broken. Could have been packed better, but I put it in my own pot to stabilize it. Looks real from across the room and it suits my need to fill a spot that needed some vertical decoration.
