A woman in California has gone viral after sharing a post in which she said she realized the “perfect plant” she has been watering for the past two years is actually a fake.

“I’ve had this beautiful succulent for about 2 years now. I was so proud of this plant. It was full, beautiful coloring, just an over all perfect plant. I had it up in my kitchen window,” Caelie Wilkes, a stay-at-home mother from California, wrote in a Facebook post dated February 28.

“Today I decided it was time to transplant, I found the cutest vase, that suited it perfectly. I go to pull it from the original plastic container it was purchased with to learn this plant was FAKE,” Wilkes continued in the hilarious post.

Her story went viral on Wednesday, with television networks such as Fox News, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Good Morning America all featuring her on their shows.

Wilkes later wrote on Facebook that home improvement retailer Home Depot had sent her real plants.
