CLEANING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR REPLICA PLANTS

Light Dirt Accumulation (We suggest future cleaning every six months)
1) Use feather duster to remove all loose dust.
2) Apply one treatment of non-aerosol silk cleaner with spray applicator. Follow directions given for the specific brand.

Medium Dirt Accumulation (We suggest future cleaning every four months)
1) Remove loose dust with feather duster.
2) Apply one treatment of warm soapy water (Ivory soap works well, at a rate of approximately 1 teaspoon per 2 gallons water), with a spray applicator.
3) Apply one or two treatments of non-aerosol silk cleaner. If more than one treatment is required, allow plant to dry between applications.

Heavy Dirt Accumulation (We suggest future cleaning every one-two months)
1) Remove all loose dust with a feather duster.
2) Apply two treatments of soapy water (Ivory soap, at a rate of approximately 1 teaspoon per 2 gallons water), with a spray applicator. The wet leaves can be hand-wiped after the second application, if desired.
3) Apply one to three treatments of non-aerosol silk cleaner. If more than one treatment is required, allow plants to dry before re-application.
4) If plants are extremely dirty (ie: mixed with grease) they may never come completely clean unless each leaf is individually hand-wiped.

*Note: Dirt may collect in the center veins of the leaves and on any other area where water or cleaner would naturally drain. It is best to concentrate these areas for a repeat spraying.

Benefits Of Using Artificial Plants

Plants, whether live or artificial, instill a sense of tranquility and well being. The presence of greenery provides a relaxed atmosphere and creates a warm and inviting space. When artificial plants are used in combination with live plants, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between the two.

One of the main benefits of using artificial plants is that they are virtually pest-free. Some varieties of live plants are plagued with pests – mealybugs, scale insects, spider mites and fungus nats are all known to ravage live plants. Leaves and soil provide the food to support these pests and with artificial plants, there is no food supply, and thus, no pests.

Artificial plants also require virtually no maintenance. They require no water, sunlight or fertilizer. There are no special feeding requirements for artificial plants; only a slight dusting is required every couple months. Drafty, dark areas may be no match for a palm tree, but cold weather and low light levels are no obstacle for an artificial palm.Live plants continue to grow over time and a live ficus may eventually outgrow its space. They require special pruning and shaping to ensure the aesthetic is maintained. An artificial plant maintains its height, color and shape for years, without any effort. Artificial plants may be customized to fit with décor – an option live plants do not provide.

Artificial plants allow you to let nature in, without really having to do so.

Misconceptions About Artificial Plants

There are many misconceptions about artificial plants including their cost, maintenance, authenticity, and benefits in comparison to live plants. At Commercial Silk Int'l, our technological advancements with artificial greenery have paved a new path for the silk industry.

More often than not, silk plants are believed to be expensive. In reality, the price range for artificial options vary greatly and there are a variety of solutions to meet every budget when utilizing silk plants. Similar to cars, there are used Chevy trucks and high end Maseratis in the world of plants. The initial investment may be high, but the return is far greater due to their longevity and low maintenance.

In regards to maintenance, silk plants are often thought to be a hassle to clean and delicately constructed. Most artificial plants only require a light cleaning every six months which involves a light dusting or a damp wipe down. While real plants require water, fertilization, light and proper soil, artificial plants need no water, no fertilization, no light nor soil. Silk plants are virtually maintenance-free. The dark corner of your bedroom is no match for a real hibiscus, but an artificial one provides the same beauty and charm without requiring special light. A desert may be no match for a real ivy covered trellis, but an artificial one made with our UV protected leaves will last years without any care. Our artificial plants at Commercial Silk Int'l require no soil – each plant is anchored in a secure grow pot filled with foam or concrete, or industrial strength base.

Silk plants are often thought of as looking plastic and fake. At Commercial Silk Int'l, high attention to detail is paid to the components and construction of each artificial product. When compared side by side, it is almost impossible to identify which plant is real and which is fake.
