I've seen these plants flicker on some surfaces, but not all. It seems to me that it's the same issue as the showers that have basins/bottoms that flicker, except those showers always have the flickering problem.

Re: [TO TEST] Flickering Potted Plants

I was able to confirm this in my game - I tested placement on a bar (just a random choice of surfaces but certainly saw the flickering on it).  The 3 decorative plants affected are the Mega Flower Pot, Tabletop Potted Plant, and Mega Houseplant Pot.  Will add to our list.

I love to troubleshoot and help resolve issues, but I do not work for EA and am doing this on a volunteer basis. Please be patient, as sometimes life happens, and it may take me a bit to get back to you.
