In the past, artificial plants were made of polystyrene or other synthetic materials. These are not environmentally friendly and often break down when exposed to high heat, sunlight and moisture.
With the introduction of plant-like polymers that look and feel like real plants, you can now enjoy them in your home without worrying about their environmental impact. These new types of artificial plants are also more durable and sturdy than their predecessors.
Some people remove their real plants from the house at the end of winter to prevent them from getting damaged by harsh conditions. You can do the same thing with your artificial ones by taking good care of them during the summer months.
There are a lot of things that can go wrong with your artificial plants and you may not even know it. Here is a list of the most common problems and their possible solutions:
Blinds – Blinds are a great way to add privacy and light to your home, however they can leave your plants exposed to the elements. If you notice that one of your blinds is damaged or missing, it’s time to replace it. A replacement blind is not only cheap but will also ensure that your plants stay healthy and happy.
Leaves on the floor – If you notice leaves on the floor near an artificial plant, this could mean there is mould growing underneath it. Mould can be very damaging to artificial plants as well as real ones so if you see this happening remove the plant immediately!
Fungus – Fungus is another thing that can grow under artificial plants and cause them to yellow or die off completely. It’s important not only to keep an eye out for fungus but also keep an eye out for any changes in colour or texture on the leaves themselves. These are signs that something is wrong with your plant so take care of it immediately!
Below are some tips on how to protect your artificial plants.
One of the most important steps in maintaining your artificial plants is to keep them clean. To do this, you will need to use a soft brush. This will help remove any dirt or dust from the surfaces of your plant. You can also use a vacuum cleaner to remove any loose dirt from the leaves and stems of your plant.
Once you have cleaned your artificial plants, you should be able to see that there are several different types of pests that can affect them. In order to prevent these pests from entering your home, you should take steps to prevent their entry into your home in the first place. You can do this by sealing all cracks and holes around doors, windows, and other openings in your home.
You should also consider placing screens over all vents in your home. This will help prevent insects from entering through these openings as well as preventing any bugs from escaping out of them as well.
