Preserved Or Silk Plants San Diego – What Soothes Your Soul?

Preserved or silk plants San DiegoWe’ve already compared live and silk plants San Diego, but how do you choose between silk and preserved plants? For those of us who lack the green thumb, both options sound marvelous as they both have extremely low maintenance expectations. At first glance, it seems like you cannot go wrong either way. Still, there are differences and we hope to help you make the best call with this side-by-side comparison between preserved and silk plants San Diego.

Visual appeal

Preserved plants are all-natural and yes, even fragrant, while silk plants are just natural-looking, but that does not make them any less convincing. What’s more, faux plants are extremely durable and therefore remain equally appealing in the visual sense regardless of the conditions and for what is virtually a lifetime. Preserved plants, on the other hand, can stay beautiful for years, but only under optimum conditions.

Pet & children safety

Both are safe for children and pets, so you needn’t ever worry about poisoning or allergies. Still, to keep preserved plants safe and sound, they should be kept out of reach of your munchkins and your animal friends.

Care & maintenance

In this sense, faux plants win by a mile. Although both require very little maintenance (zero watering and zero soil), preserved plants may never leave the safety of your home and must stay indoors at all times. On the other hand, silk plants, much like artwork, pretty much require only the occasional dusting and wiping.

What’s more, long exposure to sunlight and heat sources will cause preserved plants harm, which is not the case with silk plants which can survive literally anywhere. Humidity level should be kept at about 70% to secure longevity and prosperity of preserved plants, while silk plants are unaffected by it.

Longevity & sensitivity

As mentioned, silk plants are sturdy and resilient and will therefore thrive under any conditions. You can literally keep them forever. Preserved plants, on the other hand, are somewhat more fragile, so touching them is not advisable. However, if you are careful and keep them out of harm’s way, you can enjoy their company for many happy years.


As far as the price goes, silk plants should fit anyone’s budget, while preserved plants are somewhat pricier. Still, unlike live plants which require potentially costly maintenance, both silk and preserved plants are entirely affordable. Due to both of these types of plants being undemanding in terms of maintenance, there are basically no costs past the initial purchase.

Forever Young – The Secret Life Of Preserved Plants San Diego

Preserved plants San DiegoRiddle me this – what kind of indoor greenery is not as demanding as natural plants, but in no way faux? All-natural preserved plants San Diego combine the best of both worlds – their sheer beauty is absolutely irresistible, yet their maintenance is practically effortless. Embellishing your home with majestic and incredibly life-like preserved plants is like surrounding yourself with captivating works of art created by Mother Nature and just a touch of science. San Diego Botanicals lets you in on the secrets behind preserved plants San Diego.

How are they made?

Plant preservation is a process which uses only natural ingredients to preserve a plant in all its glory, while in its prime. The plant is placed in a special room where its sap is allowed to evaporate before it becomes replaced with a unique mixture of natural ingredients. The rest of the process comes down to some rinsing and drying and voilà, the plant is preserved in all its splendor.

The end-product is therefore 100 % natural and, by extension, 100 % biodegradable. What’s more, it’s so realistic that it takes time to distinguish between a fresh plant and its preserved look-alike. And what is truly amazing about preserved plants is that they also get to keep their delicious scent for years.

Caring for preserved plants

Preserved plants do not require maintenance, but they do need attention. What most people love about them is that there is no need to water them whatsoever. You can also forget about the soil (great news for pet-owners).

What’s important to remember is that preserved plants should be kept indoors at all times, but away from heat sources and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. The optimum level of humidity is under 70%. Also keep in mind that these beauties do not like to be touched, since once damaged, there is no going back.


The lifespan of preserved plants depends on several factors, among which are how much exposure to direct sunlight they get, the level of humidity in your home, and, last but not least, how you handle them. It also depends on the type of plant itself. Over time, these plants might change color or lose their shape. Still, it’s safe to say that, with these factors taken into consideration, they will stay evergreen and delightful for many years, just like silk plants.
