If you’re planning to decorate your home or office you may be thinking of using plants to improve your surroundings. That’s a great idea, as plants help create a peaceful and appealing atmosphere, but what are the best types of plants? Today’s artificial plants help to make this an even better (and easier) choice because of the realism and beauty they provide. More good news is the maintenance and ongoing problems of keeping live plants are eliminated, not to mention the continual maintenance costs.
Other challenges you may not have considered when using live plants: Will there be enough available sunlight and fresh air? Will they survive through damaging stress if maintenance is interrupted for any reason? You can be assured this won’t be a problem with artificial plants, which are often referred to as silk plants. One last advantage you may not have pondered is eliminating any chance of friends or clients having an allergic reaction. It can be a disconcerting problem for more people than you may realize, especially flowering plants.
How can you be sure of the quality? First, look for a company that offers a money back guarantee on their artificial plants. Don’t expect a company to pay for your return shipping if it’s not what you expected, but at least a reimbursement of your investment or replacement using a different variety if not happy.
If you’re still hesitant consider ordering a small, inexpensive silk plant or several artificial flowers (or “silk flowers”) to help you decide the value of the plants you’re contemplating. Besides, you can always mix artificial flowers in a bouquet of fresh flowers for more color and variety, which has become a very popular concept in the florist industry.
Silk plants are available in a myriad of varieties and here a few: large silk trees (for outdoor use), small and in between size artificial trees such as palms, ivies, laurel, ferns, grasses, artificial ficus plants of all kinds (woody plants), bamboo, yucca, hanging plants. I could go on, but you get the idea.
Consider your present décor carefully, and don’t forget to accurately measure the area to be utilized when ordering your artificial plants. Don’t crowd an area, rather give it some space and of course place it in an area where it can be enjoyed!
Be assured that if you purchase high quality artificial plants you won’t be disappointed, assuming you plan carefully. The realism of today’s artificial plants is almost inconceivable with the intensive custom handiwork and technology that goes into the best brands. \
Imagine taking a real live plant and stripping it down piece by piece, measuring it, photographing it, recreating it with computer technology into a near perfect match, producing molds for each part, hand painting the parts with special florist spray paints. Now you’re ready to put all the parts together to make your silk botanicals. Not all artificial plants are constructed this way, but the best brands are always extremely detailed similar to these artful production techniques.
Today’s best replicas are often made from cotton, or a cotton / Rayon combination, not the old plastic flowers and plastic plants we used to find (unless you go to your local discount store). Some of the bigger artificial trees even have real wood included for the limbs and trunk. Those are the predominant reasons I’m convinced you will be elated with your choices if you plan carefully and select high quality artificial plants from a reputable dealer.
