Why use Artificial Plants ?
- They are widely used in commercial displays and advertising where conditions do not allow real plants to be used. This includes using artificial plants in situations where real plants will not survive due to heat or lighting both indoors and outdoors.
- Artificial plants are also widely used where a long lasting display with minimum upkeep is required.
- Materials used in the manufacture of artificial plants range from PVC through to glass and silk.
Artificial plants or fake plants are growing in popularity. For many years artificial flowers have been popular in pots and planters in commercial displays both indoors and outdoors.
In the past this type of plant was often referred to as ‘plastic plants’ with a derogartory undertone, however with advances in materials and technology artificial trees, palm trees and even artificial bamboo are now available for both indoor and outdoor use in a range of long lasting materials.
