What are the benefits of artificial office plants?

Similarly to live plants, artificial office plants can deliver a wide range of well-being benefits. Researchers at Vjre Universitat found that simply looking at pictures of plants was enough to lower stress. Therefore, introducing replicas is likely to have a similar effect. On top of this, research done by the University of Munich showed that exposure to the colour green in any format boosts creativity.

Besides wellbeing, they also come with a host of physical benefits. Firstly, they require no maintenance to keep their structure, very little maintenance to keep them looking pristine and they don’t shed their leaves – helping you save time. Secondly, if you have a workspace with poor natural lighting for live plants then artificial office plants are a fantastic way to introduce more greenery into your space. Additionally, whilst even properly maintained live plants will start to age, artificial office plants always look as good as the day they were installed.

Meanwhile, outdoor artificial office plants also come with a host of benefits. Primarily, the benefit is that they’re not at risk of dying from extreme weather events unlike and additionally, they don’t attract any pests.

How do I care for my artificial office plants?

While artificial office plants require no maintenance to keep their structure, there are a few steps you can take to keep them clean. There are two ways to remove dust from the leaves of your plants.

Firstly, you can take the soft brush on a hoover and run it over the leaves & around the trunk. To ensure the whole plant is properly cleaned, it’s best to run a hoover over the face of the leaves with a hand placed behind it. Alternatively, you can use a damp cloth with warm water or a standard duster to remove dust from the leaves.

When cleaning your plants it’s best to avoid placing them in the dishwasher. Doing so can damage them or cause the colours to run. For the same reason, we don’t recommend running your plants under the tap.

 

I’m looking to place artificial office plants outside, how do I prevent them from fading in the sun?

Unfortunately, the majority of artificial office plants are prone to fading. Although this will vary between plants based on structure and location – we would recommend buying U.V resistant plants for outdoor areas.

Alternatively, if you already have a selection of plants outdoors that are not U.V resistant then you can purchase U.V spray to help reduce the risk of fading.

Here at Exubia, we have a wide selection of U.V resistant office plants so if you’re looking to introduce them outdoors then make sure to contact us.

 

Is there are a plastic-free alternative to artificial office plants?

Companies aiming to go plastic-free may struggle with how to justify buying artificial office plants. As a result, this rules out plants altogether for companies that also suffer from poor lighting.

Luckily, there is now a third option – our preserved plants offer a stunning, zero plastic alternative to artificial office plants. The plants are preserved in a solution of water, glycerin (to aid water retention), nutrients (to help nourish the plant) and food colouring (to dye it in the desired colour). After it’s soaked, it’s then left to dry for the next 24 hours.

 

What is the best way to style my artificial office plants?

One of the biggest mistakes people make when introducing artificial office plants is not investing enough in the planters. Even the least realistic artificial office plants can look stunning when combined with the right planter.

Besides the planter, how you proceed to pot your artificial office plants will also have a big impact on how they look. Bark, pebbles, gravel, sand, and soil are just a few of the options you have at your disposal when potting your artificial office plants. Playing around with planters and potting material is a great way to figure out what style you prefer most.

Equally, if you’d rather have someone else take care of the styling for you then not to worry. Here at Exubia, we’re experts when it comes to styling artificial office plants.
