Do I need to take care and maintain my fake tree? 

Yes and no. While our selection of fake plants eliminate the need for daily maintenance, you will periodically want to clean it and wipe away any dust it might have gathered.  We recommend doing this with a feather duster or a microfiber cleaning cloth and/or spare cleaning towelettes, gently dusting and removing any excess dirt, dust, and debris from your artificial plants.  If easily portable, bring your artificial plant outside and use a paintbrush to remove any extra dirt that has accumulated not only on the faux-liage, but within the planter itself (like on the moss, rocks, and setting).
