​Why Artificial Plants Can Be Better for Your Health

Posted

Over 80% of Australians are living in urban areas, and out of that number, we spend an amazing 90% of our time indoors. Therefor the quality of the indoor environment is crucial to our wellbeing. Whether we are at home or work, our lifestyle should be tranquil and inspiring. What better to add the finishing touches to our ultra-modern suburbia living areas than lush green plants bursting with life, adding much needed ambiance to the building.

But with the Australian institute of health and welfare reporting that over 2.5 million people have hay fever or allergies, plants are hardly the wisest decision - unless you choose artificial or fake plants. But not just any artificial plant will do! In this case, you get what you pay for, and cheap can look tacky. Good quality, well-made artificial plants are hard to tell apart from natural living plants. They look the same; they feel the same, they just don’t smell.

Allergy sufferers suffer watery, itchy eyes, and violent sneezing all caused from the pollen, gums or oils in living plants and flowers. Thankfully you don’t have to give up on the beauty of plants. If you choose fake plants as opposed to living flowers, here are some of the benefits that you will get.
  • With a quality made fake plant you can still use greenery to accentuate the beauty of your home or work space because they are non-allergenic.
  • Steam, heat and dim lighting will not affect the plants – you can have amazing plants in in the dimmest or sunniest space without harming the plant.
  • Pest free – no bugs or insects living within the plant
  • When travelling, the plants care for themselves

For allergy sufferers, artificial plants provide an inexpensive, practical way that they can still enjoy plants without having to suffer. But the plants are beneficial in other ways; they remain the same size so you don’t have to repot them. Large living plants in big pots weigh a ton (or feel like it) and are hard to move, causing muscle strain and injury.

However, the artificial plants can be moved easily, by anyone. Cleaning is quick, a wipe down with a damp rag and you're done. For someone who has health or allergy issues, a fake plant is a welcome alternative. You will be amazed and impressed at the quality these ‘lifelike’ plants possess. Knowing your health is not being compromised, you can relax and enjoy your modern plant filled retreat.
