Therefor appropriate: boxwood spheres or cypresses in large pots.
Decorate your entrance or pillars with noble garlands, which can be attached with only a few glue dots.

Although there is no need
to maintain an artificial plant like its natural model, they should
be similar in their look. That is why there are already plants with
yellow leaf margins or dead log parts. The „unreal“ look of the
artificial plant often comes from the improper opening and spreading
of the leaves.
It is important to remember that:
- the younger, smaller and fresher the leaves are, the further up they have to be attached, because those are the new and bright sprouts. Bigger and larger leaves should be attached below.
- Leaves being attached to the log below shall not be bend higher than those having their source further up.
- The petioles shall not be bended rectangularly – no natural plant would grow this way. The petioles have to be formed from the log to the leaf tips with just a few small and gentle steps.
...now be careful not to water the artificial plants accidentally.
Secure standing of artificial plants

Many artificial plants are delivered with a cement base which makes the plant stand upright on its own. In this way the perfect location can easily be tested out and the plant can simply be relocated. You don´t have to be afraid to clench the log. In contrast to its natural model the artificial plant doesn't take it personal if you grab it. She endures it.
The choice of the right planter
If the product is marked as „Dekotopf“, you need no further planter. The cement base is in a beautiful, neutral plastics pot and does fit to the plant at size and color.
If the product is marked as „mit Zementfuß“ and if the base is visible in the decoration, you will have to search for a planter which fits the surroundings. You will find a wide range of planters in the Europalms accessory section.
In most cases it is sufficient to put the plants into the pots and to cover them with sand, pebbles or expanded clay.
In den meisten Fällen wird es ausreichen, die Pflanzen in die Töpfe zu stellen und mit Sand, Kieseln oder Blähton (Hydrokultur) aufzufüllen.
With plants being either higher than 2 meters or stand near an often used footway, it is recommended to install an additional security for standing, for example by laying large stones under the planters or at the cement base. As long as the footprint of the planter is, in relation to its treetop, big enough you can as well cement it.
Plants without cement base
uv-green with 83011004 filling foam
The base of artificial plants should be molded, if their height exceeds one meter (depending on their foliage and weight). You can use conventional construction foam as it is used for molding door cases. Put the plant into the planter, weight it with stones if needed, fill one third with construction foam and wait for one day. You might have to cement heavy plants.
An arching palm needs more security for standing as a man-sized leaf plant. We would be pleased to advise you which measures you have to take to secure your plant.
At the end decorate the base with moss, ornamental stones or straw – done. And don´t forget:
Do not water it!
The Europalms crew is looking forward to advise you with your product selection and knows the right plant for your interior. We would be glad to carry out your project planning or the conception of your own artificial plant, coordinated to your brand.
