When you think of a fake palm tree plant, what comes to mind? Some think they're tacky, tawdry or tasteless.
Yet there are reasons you might want to look into having one (or more?). For specific reasons. Or at least use them sometimes. For particular occasions.
Even though we love being surrounded by real palms, we have a fake palm tree plant at our house. Actually a couple of them, for various uses.
YES - There is a time, a place...
and a personal reason why you could desire to have some type of fake palm tree!
What reasons could there be? We'll let you in on some ideas.
We know some people (maybe you!) are looking for an easy way to add a tropical ambiance to your home decor. Fake palm trees that look real could be the perfect solution.
Fake palm tree plants are low maintenance & affordable. We've got several advantages to explain why these artificial plants could be worth it to you. We also have some purchase suggestions!
Discover six great benefits of synthetic palm trees, that we've found!
Fake palm tree plants need little to almost no upkeep. Would you like an Indoor Palm Tree you can enjoy? And get rid of the trouble of growing problems, watering or trimming?
What are fake palm trees' incredibly low maintenance demands?
FAKE PALMS MAINTENANCE
An occasional wipe-down of leaves with a mild cleaning solution is easy. Maybe 3 or 4 times a year, depending on your climate. It helps you rid the dulling film that accumulates.
WHAT FAKE PALMS LACK!!
A fake palm tree plant is quite durable. With proper care, these faux plants can last
many years. As a rule, no need to replace them!
Synthetic palms are usually made from strong, enduring materials. They won't fade or
deteriorate over time. Unlike natural palm trees, imitation palm tree versions can keep looking fresh & attractive. Serving you well for years down the road.
PLUS FLEXIBILITY FOR DECOR
These fake palm plants can be easily moved around.
Can't do that with real palm plants that you planted into the soil. Yes, real palms can be transplanted. But depending on lots of circumstances, not particularly easily done. Or as quickly. Or multiple times as your styling decor progresses.
Whenever you want to change your landscaping or interior arrangements, no worries! It's easier to freshen up your home decor when desired.
OUR "NEON" PALM
For instance, we have our fake palm. It's styled as a neon light. But that's fake too, as it's not really a neon light.
It regularly sits on a small stand in our gathering area before exiting to our backyard. We turn it on, when we want subtle lighting & atmosphere in that room. For playing a game, or talking with friends/family around the round table there.
Artificial palms come in a variety of colors, sizes & shapes. That allows you excellent flexibility for your Palmy Home Decorating plans.
You'll be able to find the perfect tree to fit whatever space you have.
Another idea is to Buy a Fake Palm Tree plant that's clustered together. That look makes for a lush tropical atmosphere!
Or instead, go for a more sparse and minimalist look.
Some artificial palms have LED lights built-in. How cool is that! Making them an energy efficient, decorative, yet subtle lighting solution at your home.
You probably know this, but maybe didn't think about this advantage!
Of course, fake palm trees don't produce pollen. Bringing a fake palm plant indoors, rather than a natural palm, rids you of palmy allergy issues. Inside your own home!
The same with Fake Outdoor Palms. Go for some type of outdoor artificial palm tree instead of traditional plantings.
OH - THOSE NASTY ALLERGY SYMPTONS!
You & your family won't have to worry about bothersome allergies. Avoid that sneezing and congested noses.
I know we feel for those of you suffering from those plant allergies.
Bill & I both have irritating allergies to various plant pollens. They make us sneeze, have watery or dry eyes (depending), give us sinus headaches & make us cough. Hope that wasn't TMI!
Real palm trees can cause these allergic reactions. Maybe for you! So if you want that tropical aura for your home, getting fake palm trees avoids that.
DUST/ODORS GET YOU SNIFFLING?
Your allergy tends more to dust or odor related?
Then think of the fertilizer treatments (could be stinky or dusty!!) real palms need. Artificial palms don't need fertilizing. Or any type of special treatments involving soil.
Just dust them lightly, as you would do for your furniture. To keep that powdery irritant under control.
If you're looking for an allergy-friendly, tropically influenced home decor solution...
Synthetic Palm Trees Are The Perfect Choice!
It's true, the initial investment might be more than real palms. That could be variable, though, depending on your choices for either one.
First the artificial palm tree price you choose can fit with your own spending plan. Plus, remember over time, a fake palm tree plant turns out to be more cost efficient for your budget.
Artificial palms have no ongoing costs like water or fertilizers. Expenses for natural palms which you won't have. That can make them easier on your budget in the long run.
Just imagine planting a real palm tree. The ongoing maintenance it will need. The watering, the fertilizer, etc. Never mind adding in the cost of buying the plant.
You'll have no such essentials when you purchase artificial palm trees. They don't need any special care or treatment. Just a little cleaning solution a few times a year (very cheap!).
So all in all, they're the budgeter's choice.
You don't want to buy fake palm trees to use indoors or outdoors? For regular usage, that is.
Have you thought about Artificial Palm Trees For Outdoors during the holidays? Or maybe for a particular party you're planning. Like a luau!
You don't even need to get a fantastic looking fake for a party. It could be a fun sort. Even something like one of the Blow-Up Palm Trees! It would make a fun decorative background. Plus practical usage.
Is your backyard arranged like your own home-grown resort? Get some fake palm trees for pool area seating. They are easily moved around to suit your party plans, to fit right where you need them.
For the holiday season, use one of the pre-lit fake palm trees. Types that can be used outdoors as Palmy Christmas Decorations in your landscape.
Or for an Indoor Palm-Style Christmas Decoration.
