Lady Gaga, The current queen of popular culture, unveiled her newest song at Elton John’s infamous White Tie and Tiara Ball.

When To Use Silk Plants And Artificial Trees

Live plants are often the first choice for corporate or business office settings. In many cases, though, silk plants and trees are a more appropriate option. The following is a run-down of environmental, maintenance, cost, and other factors to take into consideration while planning your next commercial interior landscaping project.

Installing silk trees in a lobby area is an effective way to make a good first impression on visitors. At the same time, these areas are often drafty and subject to temperature swings, making for poor conditions for indoor tropical plants. Silk plants, meanwhile, are durable, weatherproof alternatives for casinos and other commercial projects.

Lighting
Live plants require proper lighting conditions. Silk plant products, in contrast, are a viable choice for darker conference rooms, offices, or other indoor office settings with little available natural light.
