It is also true, however, that they tend to wilt due to adverse weather conditions or when, due to lack of time, they are not adequately treated. In fact, not all of us have the so-called "green thumb" and this today justifies the diffusion and use of artificial plants, made with synthetic materials but practically identical, in shape and colors, to the real ones. Before proceeding with the purchase, however, it is advisable to check that the raw material used to create the types of fake plant (plastic or fabric) does not contain toxic substances, harmful to human health. Why prefer them? First of all because they are always green and colorful, they do not water, are easily washable and do not attract insects.
