Deceptively real-looking artificial plants
Artificial plants are, as the name suggests, small works of art made of fabric, plastic or other materials that look like real plants at first glance (and often also at second glance). They are composed of an artificial branch made of plastic or metal to which leaves made of paper, fabric or plastic are attached. Plant material can also be used to enhance the visual authenticity. The artificial plant also includes a pot, which visually represents the roots of the plant together with the associated soil and also provides a stable base for the plant.
How are artificial plants made?
A high-quality artificial tree is the result of a long conception phase, in which both material and design are carefully selected. The individual parts, such as leaves, branches and roots, are produced by machine and assembled in delicate manual work. High-quality plastic plants are therefore small works of art, which are in no way inferior to real plants in terms of their visual effect.
Guide for cleaning artificial plants
One argument in favour of the artificial houseplant is its easy care. Depending on the material, there are only a few rules to follow. For larger plastic leaves on artificial palms or similar decorative plants, a soft cloth and soapy water is recommended. Finer objects can be cleaned with dust cloths and feather dusters. A soft rain in the shower will also clean thoroughly and quickly. For leaves made of fabric or paper, the use of compressed airis recommended.
Artificial plants: a smart alternative to real plants
Artificial plants can be used wherever their real counterparts are used. Whether as plants in the office, in the waiting room area, to brighten up workshop spaces or for the cosy home, they bring a touch of green everywhere. For allergy sufferers, they pose no problem and also withstand curious pets or minor falls. In addition, they can also be used in places that would be problematic for real plants. Little sunlight does not bother them, nor does a lack of fresh air and water. They tolerate heavy frost and can therefore be used in the garden or on the balcony without any problems. They are also suitable as occasional decorative elements that can be stowed away in a storage cupboard for the rest of the time.
Finally, their longevity is a decisive advantage. While many beautiful real plants die after just a few months or years, artificial plants that are treated with care can provide pleasure for decades.
Artificial plants for indoor and outdoor use
In principle, artificial plants for outdoors can also be used indoors if the necessary space is available. They are more robustly finished, brave the elements more easily and do not fade even in direct sunlight.
Additionally suitable for outdoor use are artificial grass or artificial hedges, which are particularly well suited as natural privacy screens. Artificial plants for indoors are often shaped from more delicate, but nevertheless shapely material. They can find their place on the window sill, the worktable or other places in the interior.
What sizes are there of artificial plants?
Artificial plants come in numerous sizes, mimicking the usual dimensions of real plants. The smallest artificial plants are potted plants of 50 cm or less that will fit on any window sill and are a real eye-catcher without taking up too much space. Their weight varies between one and a half to two kilograms. An artificial tree, which is large for an artificial plant at just under two metres and has a splendid appearance, weighs up to ten kilograms. Most artificial plants settle between these two measurements.
Various decoration with artificial plants
If you want to decorate with plants in offices, salesrooms or elsewhere, there are numerous possibilities. Individual plants and flowers can add fresh accents and catch the eye on a work table or in a shop window. Larger arrangements are also possible and can provide a great overall picture by expert hands. A special eye-catcher can be to hang artificial plants if there are appropriate fixtures on the ceiling for this purpose.
When it comes to decoration, a healthy balance is important. Artificial plants can be combined in a variety of ways; a single, larger artificial plant that serves as the focal point and several smaller artificial plants that are harmoniously distributed around it in the room are particularly recommended. Part of the decoration is also the use of planters, especially for potted plants. Depending on the décor, these can be brightly coloured, classically simple or elegantly ornate, thus integrating the artificial plants even better into the overall picture.
Artificial plants as privacy screens
Another possible use of artificial plants is the use as privacy screens. Larger artificial plants and hedges can visually separate parts of offices and provide good privacy without inhibiting air and noise. Tall artificial grass or similar artificial plants can also serve as room dividers on balconies and in gardens. A row of artificial plants on balcony railings not only protects against unwanted glances from the street or neighbouring buildings, but also allows people to retreat into their own little green world.
Orchids to aloe vera: Large selection of artificial plants
Artificial plants can be divided into several categories. Some are imitated pot plants and correspond, for example, to orchids, strelitzias, hydrangeas or similar flowering plants. They are usually supplied in a plain saucer. Ferns, small palms and similar large-leaved plants, as well as various cacti and aloe plants, are plainer and have a calming, fresh effect on the indoor climate.
Frequently, they belong in a pot.
Frequently, they also come with a larger vase, which automatically puts them in the spotlight, even when free-standing. Artificial grasses are available in many varieties and can be used outdoors or indoors as room dividers, visual separators or as a background for other arrangements. A artificial tree or artificial palms, which consist of a trunk grown like a natural one and attractive, shade-giving leaves, tower above them all and can reach or even exceed 2 metres. Whether a high-quality artificial plant is large or small, it always looks natural and well-grown.
