The truth is maintaining live plants is not so good for the environment and artificial plants are more friendly for the earth’s resources than you may think.
Treating your artificial plant with UV protection, its life expectancy is longer than untreated indoor products. It should last 3- 5 or so years. Without UV treatment, regardless of the material, the outdoor artificial plant last will be even shorter for they are prone to age and lose shape and texture. Pacific Silkscapes can spray commercial-grade UV protection on selected indoor products that are going outdoors and will not have direct sunlight.
