Yes! Artificial plants aren’t made out of cheap silks we saw back in the 1950s. Commercial grade artificial plants such as replica succulents, air plants, ferns, ivy, trees or variegated leaves look and even feel like they are real.
One type of extremely real looking replica plants is made from molded foam core. The design is an actual digital photo image of a real plant transferred to the surface. These are so good, a lot of them fool the pros. Another version uses live plants that are treated and preserved.
The best choices are so durable they can stand up to outdoor conditions. And – no irrigation will be needed, another plus in Southern California.
