Formerly artificial plants and flowers They gave a lot of cante and did not compensate in any case, but the materials with which they are manufactured, and the designs, have improved a lot over time and now there are some very realistic ones. Probably in some restaurant or commercial establishment you have approached to touch some to see if it really was artificial, because seemed authenticand it is that not all of them are worth but, with well-chosen artificial plants and following some tips for maintenancewe can manage to fool the eye quite easily.
We start with the choice of material. In general, the latex is the most realistic, but artificial plastic or fabric plants they are cheaper and in some cases they can also give the hit. Of course, it is important to value the quality price, the cheapest ones usually also last a very short time and if we have to be buying new plants every two times three, the expense is also higher.
Going into details, it is appropriate to choose plants with little brightness and that incorporate some imperfections. That is the trend today for artificial plants to look as authentic as possible.
As for the plants that we can choose, it will really depend on the use that we want to give it and any one can be used as long as it corresponds to a real plant, but there are some species that are better reproduced and are very versatile, as in the case of the montsera, the succulents and the hanging plants.
If we want to pay attention to details, we can be careful about seasonal change, many plants do not flower throughout the year and it would be pointless to have them bloom beyond summer and until spring returns. That is, we can change, remove or put, some artificial plants or others depending on the time of year.
Something fundamental is not to leave the artificial plant with the plastic pot in which we bought it on sight, but we must try to recreate the real background of an authentic natural plant with a larger pot, giving it height, decorating with artificial moss or stones, etc.
When instead of talking about plants we refer to loose artificial flowers, there is a tendency to even use glass vases to show that they are placed in water. Water that will have to be changed frequently, logically, to keep it clean.
One of the keys to making an artificial plant or flower arrangement look natural is mix heights, textures and colors. Homogeneity does not correspond to the trend of nature, it is the variety that interests us so that our plants and flowers look authentic.
There is even the option of mix natural with artificialin this way the eye goes to the natural and our brain assumes that the whole set is.
And with regard to maintenance, cleaning is essential, artificial plants collect dust on their leaves that we must Clean with a wet clothor following the manufacturer’s instructions, frequently.
And for those who want to level up with sight deception and also deceive through smell, there is the option of spraying with some perfume so that the scent of artificial plant resembles as much as possible that of the corresponding natural plant.
