Is there any reason why I couldn't go to Michael's craft store and purchase a silk plant or flower for my Betta?:-D

Some have annoying fuzzies that shed into the water :p The plastic might also have chemicals that may leach out. It's also likely that they've been exposed to other craft supplies with harmful chemicals.

Although I vaguely remember someone using regular craft silk plants in their aquarium, I would just go with the aquarium-made ones for peace of mind :)

There are a couple people who go to the dollar store and pick up some soft plastic plants. They only thing you have to make sure of is that they don't release anything into the water and that they don't fall apart. (test them in water)
