Make Your Plant Look Less Fake
- Choose high-quality faux greenery
Many people are traumatized at the sight of cheap-looking artificial greenery, from the dust accumulation to the tacky plasticky look. So Nearly Natural became the first silk botanical company to hire lead designers and horticulturists to design every product to solve this issue. Long gone are the days of those frightening fake flowers, say hello to high-quality faux greenery.
- Look for natural elements
When buying faux greenery, be on the lookout for keywords such as real to touch and natural trunks; these are the most lifelike out of all our silk trees and tend to be the most popular.
- Add some faux moss or dirt
How to make your fake plants look more real? To increase the likelihood of fooling your friends into thinking you have a green thumb, consider adding faux moss or dirt in the planter of your new home decor plants. Some artificial plants for home decor already include it, saving you the hassle of having to procure it yourself.
