Artificial Trees, Plants, and Flowers Continue to Grow in Popularity With Both Commercial and Residential Buyers, Due in Part to Their Low Maintenance Requirements

While interior decorators have long included plants and trees in their design arsenal, they are increasingly turning to the artificial variety either voluntarily, or at the behest of their client. Although the quality of artificial plants continues to improve over time, the primary reason for their continuing growth in popularity remains to be the relatively low level of maintenance required.

Plants and trees have long been noted by interior design professionals as very effective tools for softening the appearance of a corner, or for generating a more open and airy feeling in a room. The artificial types of foliage have continued to dominate in this field due to their increasing realism and low maintenance requirements.

Although some venues offer the conditions necessary to maintain a healthy variety of living plants, most lack the recommended levels of sunlight, humidity, and temperature. The enclosed traffic areas of a mall, interior offices in a commercial building, or poorly lit living areas in your own home are all examples of spaces which could benefit from the light and airy atmosphere that greenery can provide, but which do not offer the conditions necessary for live plants.

Artificial flora also offer some other benefits that make them the preferred choice even in environments that are otherwise conducive to healthy live plants. With living plants, regardless of the conditions existing in the current location, problems with various fungus, bugs, and plant disease must be constantly monitored and treated. In addition, some people have allergies that are triggered by certain plants. Of course, none of these problems exist with artificial trees, plants or flowers.

Regarding artificial flora, the only maintenance required under normal circumstances is a monthly dusting and possible reshaping of branches. This may take only several minutes per plant, and will keep them looking just as shinny and fresh and their biological counterparts.
