Amazing Indoor Artificial Palm Trees
The Beauty of Trees
When you think about the world, about Earth and Universe and about life in general, which is the first image that your mind projects? For many people, it would be the image of a green plant, often the image of a tree.
The answer, according to psychology, is extremely simple. The green leaves are associated with life, while the roots of trees also have a mythological signification for life and world. Therefore, what other proof do you need, in order to accept the truth that trees are some of the most beautiful elements around us?
More than being the most representative elements for life, health, happiness and prosperity, plants and trees are the ones that add beauty to the world around us, from gardens and farms to forests, natural reservation, parks, streets, yards and more. They are the most tangible proof of life!
The Most Beautiful Trees in the World
Some of the most beautiful trees in the world are the Japanese Maple trees, which have inspired hundreds of artists to paint or write sensible, touching poetry and songs. But equally fascinating are the Cannonball Trees, as well as the Palm Trees, which are a very special species of trees for people, coming in multiple shapes and variations, as the most popular symbol of vacation, sun, summer, sea and beauty.
Let's be honest, when you see a palm-tree, your mind immediately brings your thoughts to a relaxing, comfortable hammock between two palm trees on the golden sand from the beach, next to the blue sea, under the hot sun. And this is exactly what makes palm trees do special and enjoyable for people!
Bring That Natural Beauty Home
To bring beauty home, many people decide to enhance their homes with the most beautiful, apart and fascinating indoor trees, flowers and other indoor plants.
From simple cactuses to pretentious flowers and to sophisticated indoor trees, people bring all sorts of beautiful plants into their homes, for a comfortable, relaxing and natural home environment.
Besides, more than offering a comforting visual atmosphere, more than adding color to the room and more than becoming a design piece of your home, indoor plants are also an important element for the quality of the air in your house, generating a considerable amount of welcome oxygen, which is extremely beneficial for rooms, bedrooms, halls and even offices and living rooms.
Moreover, with so many health and aesthetic roles, plants become part of your home and family, having an incredible psychological impact, too.
For all people, especially for those allergic to pets, plants might even become their best friends. There are so many people who talk to their plants or who absorb their every day positive energy from their plants, watching them grow more and more beautiful as a soul therapy - this offers a fundamental importance to plants in any home!
Are Natural Plants at Home Such a Great Idea For Everyone?
Though beautiful, real trees do require a lot of care. You need to stay up to date and to know how to care for your trees, otherwise you will lose them - because they are alive, and without proper care, they will die.
After you grow attached to them, losing them will definitely make you sad and will leave an empty place in your heart and memories. It's not only that you have to regularly feed them with water and special plant food. Caring for a plant means so much more. It means changing the potting soil whenever needed, it means knowing how to cut the right leaves at the right moment, it means a good knowledge about parasite prevention and it means knowing everything about your plants' needs: light, wetness, position etc. Now, while there are many people passionate about gardening, the truth is that not everyone is good at caring for living plants - some people do have a black thumb and don't succeed in keeping plants alive.
Moreover, imagine that you buy an extremely beautiful tree, with superb leaves and colors, but due to your stressful lifestyle, you forget or don't have enough time to take proper care of it - and it dies. Wouldn't you feel so sorry for not being able to keep that plant alive?
Short History of Artificial Plants
The situation above is something common that happened to many people, even though they were true plant lovers. And this is why they came up with the most logical and efficient solution for everyone: artificial plants! Since the 1980s, people have understood that while almost everyone loves plants, not all the people know how to care for one. And they started to create artificial plants. As years passed by and the technology developed, today there are very specialized artists who create the most beautiful, realistic, natural-looking artificial plants and trees that people can buy in order to add natural beauty to their home.
And as you will see, even though you love maple trees or palm trees (which you can find in various designs, dimensions and types on our website), due to specialized technology, all these fake indoor trees look real and will be perfect for your home, in order to remind you of nature, beauty, relaxing vacations etc.
Types and Advantages of Artificial Trees and Faux Plants
Some people like admiring the beauty of having fake hanging plants, while others prefer smaller artificial plants such as tiny flowers imitating the real ones perfectly. And others love trees in different dimensions, because artificial indoor trees are some of the most alive and attractive elements of a home.
These artificial plants come in nylon, paper, clay, polyester, plastic or even silk versions, combining materials and colors for the most realistic results. Apart from real trees which need unconditional attention from you, artificial trees are a lot easier to maintain clean and healthy-looking. With artificial trees, you won't have a problem with the need of wetness, coolness or darkness that forces you to keep the plant away from the window and from the sunlight. Also, you won't face any seasonal changes in the color, structure or appearance of your fake trees.
And, of course, your home economy will be untouched by artificial plants, because they don't need natural supplies of light, water, heat, food or pesticides. Minimal space is all they need!
Palm Trees - One of the Best Choices from Artificial Trees for Your Home Some amazing looking trees that many enjoy are the artificial palm trees. Fake palm trees can add to the beauty of a home, combining with the architecture and furniture into an exotic, relaxing result.
Now think how advantageous the artificial-plants technology becomes for you, if you wish to have a palm tree in your home! A real palm tree might never resist in the conditions of your home and lifestyle, due to special climate requirements (light, water, temperature), but an artificial palm tree will do just fine and will still look like a real one, fulfilling your dream of capturing the symbol of freedom in your own room! And because we know that you are also a lover of palm trees, and that the subject of faux indoor palm trees sounds as a real temptation to you, let's discuss a little more about the different, various types of fake palm trees!
Some of them have large palm leaves, being able to create, just like a real palm tree, some shading for you when the sun beats in your home - creating the perfect place for you to read a book just like you would next to the sea, fulfilling your dream this way.
Other palm leaves are small and frequent, just like the exotic palm trees from the desert! Also, they are made in order to fit any home.
For example, while some artificial palm trees are made at small dimensions in order to fit any tiny home (such as the Nearly Natural Paradise Silk Palm Tree - 5ft tall or the Tabletop Faux Palm Tree In Pot - 1.5ft tall), others are very tall artificial trees, for big homes, and are upwards of 6-7 feet tall (for instance, Nearly Natural Golden Cane Silk Palm Tree - 7ft tall, or Nearly Natural Paradise Silk Palm Tree - 6.5ft tall).
Therefore, there are lot of dimensions for indoor faux palm trees that you can choose from, on our website, in order to find the right one for your home!
How to Choose the Right Faux Palm Tree for Your Home
Yet, there is still some advice that you need before purchasing your palm tree, so make sure to follow this step because it is one that guarantees that your choice is right and you will be pleased with the palm-tree that will come into your home and which you will integrate in your living room, next to your bookcase, on your hall or in your kids' room. When looking for indoor artificial palm trees for your home, make sure that you read their descriptions carefully. Check the dimensions, the materials and other specifications.
Notice that some come with pots and some don’t, and this is information that you can find out only by reading the description, not by simply looking at the photos.
For example, it is clearly specified that the Nearly Natural Cycas Silk Plant has a plot included, but you can only understand from the description of the Nearly Natural Areca Palm Tree that it looks great with a planter and some decorative stones, but doesn't have one included.
Caring for Artificial Palm Trees
Another important point - and also good news for you - is that caring for fake indoor palm trees is relatively easy. The only aspects you need to care for are dust and light. In order to prevent from dust storage on the leaves of your artificial palm trees, wipe them with a wet cloth once or twice a week and spray them with special substances for extra-shine and natural look. If you do so, there is small - almost inexistent - possibility for cobwebs to appear in your artificial tree; yet, if they do appear, make sure you remove them quickly. If you have pets, make sure you regularly remove their hair. If you keep your artificial plant into the sunlight, make sure you rotate it once a week, so that the color won't fade due to light exposure. All these elements represent the care you have for your artificial palm tree and will contribute to its maintenance from the first day, when you settle it into your home. If you take proper care, then your fake palm tree will look natural and young forever!
Extra Tip: If you choose a fake palm tree from silk, you should know that despite its more realistic, harmonious and touching look, the silk palm tree is also a little more difficult to clean than the plastic one. Apart from plastic, which with a splash of water hose gets immediately clean, the silk leaves of a fake palm tree require just a little bit of more attention.
If they get really dirty, then you should cover up the pot that contains the tree with a plastic bag and then, with very small amount of water, carefully wash each leaf until everything is clean. Wipe the excess water off and then remove the plastic bag. That's it!
Cleaning with plenty of water - like in the case of plastic - is not recommended for silk, because the adhesives and colorants used into the silk leaves might leak in combination with water. Therefore, avoid pouring water on your silk palm tree in order to stay away from the risk of changing its properties and appearance!

How To Care For Fake Indoor Trees
By Jaime Mac
Artificial indoor trees
and plants can add a great feeling to any home or office. They can help brighten a room, and give a sense of being well-put-together, while being relatively low-maintenance.
Artificial plants can add a designer-like flair to your living room, add a touch of home to your office, and add a sense of nature to the feng shui of any decor. Adding a splash of color--green or otherwise--can liven up any room, alleviate seasonal depression, and give you a taste of nature without the allergies and the worries.
Do you keep buying real plants only to forget about them for days (or weeks!) at a time and have them die from lack of water? In fact, imitation houseplants are great for someone who doesn’t have a ‘green thumb’ and can’t keep real plants alive--there’s no need to water or worry about them at all!
Artificial plants don’t require any special care like regular watering or sunlight types--they always look great and add a splash of color to any room.
There are also several different types of artificial plants that would work in any space: window plants, fake corner trees, desk plants--there are so many options, that one could easily be fit into your home or office decor. And since they don’t require any upkeep, there’s no need to change your lifestyle or routine to accommodate them.
While not needing specific care, synthetic indoor trees and plants do need to be cleaned and maintained every so often to keep them fresh looking--don’t worry, you can add it to your regular housekeeping agenda.
There are a lot of things that can affect the look of your faux indoor trees and plants: dirt, dust, animal fur, cobwebs, sun damage, etc. All of these things can give your fake plants an old, weathered look, making them less attractive to have around. The secret to cleaning fake plants is to give them a little love during your weekly cleaning routine
Whenever you’re about to vacuum, give your fake plants a shake to pull any dust off of them. If you have any that are in direct sunlight, make sure you rotate it so the leaves don’t get too bleached from the sun. Notice cobwebs or cat hair on the leaves or in the base? Use a feather duster and brush them off. Even though the plants are fake, neglecting them too much can make them look ‘tired’ and noticeably fake.
Taking a few moments every week to spruce them up can keep them looking ‘alive’ and well for much longer. At the very least, they should be cleaned off once a month to take care of any dust or cobwebs that might have settled on them. Just remember, the best way to keep them looking real is to care for them like any other decorative piece in your home: dust it, wipe it off, and keep it fresh.
How To Care For Silk Plants
Cleaning silk trees and plants is much more simple than you might think--after all, they are still fake plants and don’t require a ton of maintenance. At most you’ll just need to come up with some clever ways to get the dust out of the leaves and bushes on the plant.
Most experts recommend dusting with a light cloth every week or so; this will keep you from having to do too much work and doing a ‘deep clean.’ For heavier cleanings you could try making your cloth ever-so-slightly damp although it is ill-advised to use water on silk plants as it can damage the leaves and leave water marks.
Many faux indoor plant enthusiasts suggest taking plants outdoors and giving them “a good shake” to get the dust off; although with some more delicate plants this could actually harm them more than it could help.
Another popular way to clean for silk plants is to take them outside and dust them off leaf-by-leaf with a small paintbrush, available at any crafts or dollar store. Many experts say a small, one inch paint brush is great for dusting in between the leaves and getting into all the nooks and crannys. One user also recommends that when cleaning silk trees, you use a vacuum cleaner with the brush attachment.
That’ll help get the dust up and clean up any additional dirt, pet hair, or cobwebs. There is also an old wives tale about spraying a little rubbing alcohol onto the leaves to wipe off--apparently the alcohol won’t affect the silk leaves in the same way that water will. Though this is only a wives tale and hasn’t been tested and proved just yet. Most importantly, giving your silk trees some love on the regular will keep them looking fresh for much longer.
How To Care For Plastic Plants
Much like caring for silk plants, when you care for plastic trees and plants, the most important thing is to do a little bit very often. Brushing the dust off once or twice a week will keep your plant looking clean, green, and alive.
In the event that you do need to do a deeper clean on your fake plants, here are some tips. The same rule for silk plants applies: dust once a week with a light cloth to keep dust from settling, though here it’s much safer to really dampen the rag to loosen the dust. Also much like the silk plants, experts recommend taking plants outside and literally shaking the dust off. Again, just be careful with any floral arrangements that may be a little more delicate.
Similar to the vacuum brush, some experts say that turning your hair dryer on the cool setting can help blow dust out of intricate leaf designs. With fake plastic plants, it is easier to clean them off since most plastic plants
are safe to get wet. Many fake plant owners recommend taking the whole fake indoor tree, covering the base with a plastic garbage bag and hosing the whole thing off--using the gentle ‘mist’ setting, of course.
Although for apartment dwellers, it is also acceptable to shake them out under shower head briefly--just make sure you keep the water on cold. Also, take care to dry your plastic plants quickly and thoroughly so no mold or mildew can develop--you could use the hair dryer again! Cleaning your fake plants regularly can spruce them up and keep them looking like real plants. They don’t need much care, just a good thorough dusting every so often.
In Summary ...
The most important thing is to give your faux trees and plants a little attention to keep them looking fresh. Make sure they haven’t been sun damaged and aren’t covered in pet hair. Check that the branches and leaves are sitting at appropriate angles, and if possible adjust them. A fun bonus might be to hide a pine or woodsy air freshener somewhere in the plant to give an added sense of realism. Faux plants are a great addition to any home or office and with a little regular care, can maintain their look for a long time.
