Are Artificial Plants Bad

Due to the colorful life today, many people do not have much time to take care of flowers, plants and trees, so artificial plants have emerged. At first glance, artificial plants may seem like a good idea. They don't require a lot of maintenance, don't require water, don't use soil or growing media, and no matter how bad your gardening skills are, they will never die.

Sounds like a good choice, but when you dig a little deeper, it's obvious that fake plants are sometimes not as good as the real thing. Indeed, there may be bias, but after comprehensive consideration of some realities, we express some opinions on whether fake plants are good or not.


1. Artificial plants don’t last forever.

Many people believe that artificial plants never need to be replaced, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Fake plants can easily deteriorate and fade—especially if they are regularly exposed to light. After a few months, bright colors (especially flowers) will begin to fade as the dye begins to break down. This results in an unattractive, faded appearance; in fact, you may end up replacing fake plants more often than live plants.

2. You must clean them regularly.

Artificial plants are dust magnets. Since they don't grow and require no maintenance to stay alive, it's easy to let them gather dust for months without noticing. Not only does this make breathing more difficult, it can also make your office look dirty.

You will not gain any health benefits. Live plants have been proven to provide significant health benefits to employees, and new research is emerging to support this. If you're looking to improve your overall health and morale, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more cost-effective option than live plants. We can't say the same for their artificial counterparts.

3. They are not environmentally friendly.

Many fake plants are manufactured in factories using harmful dyes and synthetic materials that cannot be easily recycled. Once a fake plant fades or becomes damaged, it ends up in the dump, where it can take many years to deteriorate. On the other hand, if a real plant needs to be thrown away because it is dying, it will begin to biodegrade almost immediately.

They can leave a bad impression on customers. While real, healthy plants can give the feeling that your business is well taken care of, fake plants—especially if they're not original—may have the opposite effect. People value authenticity, especially with customers.

4. Your options are limited.

While there are many fake plants to choose from, you have more options when you choose real plants. Especially if you have a large arrangement that requires color coordination, you may have trouble finding artificial options that work well together. When you choose the real thing, your options for different leaf and flower textures expand dramatically.


So what are the advantages of artificial plants? One special situation where we might recommend fake plants is if someone in your office is allergic to plants. If this is the case, artificial plants may be the right choice, but this type of allergy is not usually triggered by a handful of office plants.

If you're thinking about adding some beautiful live plants to your office, we have a variety of options. You can view the Artificial Plants link on our website or contact us privately for a custom one-of-a-kind pot. No matter what you want to know, we are happy to serve you.
