Lightbulb Artificial Palm Trees vs Real Palm Trees

I like (love) real palm trees but I wanted to give a chance to all the artificial palm tree lovers to state their mind and opinions. Comment here in this thread or cast your vote and let the world know!!! Be assured any palm tree lover is a friend of mine.

GardenGirl

I also just wanted to state the original thread by treecutter below:
Quote:
Many artificial palm tree suppliers would lead you to believe that real palm trees are high maintenance, when in fact approximately 90% of all real palm trees, are low maintenance. And most real palm trees can live indoors, which is another common misconception. Real palm trees, are also more aesthetically pleasing to the eye, being that they are the real thing. Whereas, artificial palm trees most of the time don't resemble real life features which are typically found in real palm trees. A primary example of these features are flowers and fruits. Spread the news... About Real Palm Trees!

Default Artficials have their benefit...

No watering, no fertilizer, and no dirt. Definitely a lot of pluses for artificial palm trees. However some people grow fond of their project or palm tree which is growing in or outside their home. So I think it depends if you want to grow fond of something or just have the look of something. Both bring joy to the purchaser in the end and that's all that really counts.

Default I second Jacob...HEHE

However, more power to those that like fake things... I think this world is getting so ahead of itself and we as a credit card nation want things now and not appreciate the better things in life that take time to cultivate and grow. That's just my opinion.

Default Real Palm Trees Is going to Have to Win.

If it doesn't i will be upset. Real palm trees has its ups and downs. As do artificial Palm trees. In an Interior decorators eyes, fake plants are a NO GO! Real Palm trees or real anything of that matter adds life to a place. By adding something that isn't real gives off a tacky feeling. It also collects dust and is harder to clean. When having a real palm tree the only maintenance depending on the tree is sufficient lighting, fertilizer, watering and the occasional clipping of the leaves. Other then that, thats pretty much it. With an artificial palm tree. You may not have to do as much in the mean while but in the long run, they collect dust, and if anyone knows about cleaning dust of leaves. Its not easy. Artificial palm trees do not filter the air you breathe. Some if not all palm trees take in some CO2 and filters it to the oxygen we breathe therefor giving us a cleaner environment free from dust and the occasional sneezing. The list goes on but My vote went to the Real Palm Trees.

Smile Definately Real Palm Trees!!!!

Fake ones gather dust and look...well...Fake!!!

And everyone can tell that the palm tree is fake and when people can tell its fake they think its cheap. Why not get a real palm tree and impress people and actually take out some time from your busy work schedule (1 minute) to water a plant...lol.. I don't think that's too hard. Also the benefit of clean oxygen (plants need us and we need plants) right!!

So Real Palms Trees are better than Fake Palm Trees.


below is a sample of a real palm tree and a fake palm tree...

Default Real palm trees!

Im choosing real palm trees. I have has some artificial ones in the past in my old apartment. Before I knew that there are palm trees that can live indoors. Well after that I started to see that when I switch to real palm trees that when i had company over they actually pointed out they liked my palm trees. After that i was hooked on the real deal. The artificial ones were hard to clean after a while because of the dust being collected underneath and on top of the leaves. Now the real palm trees i have are like my little babies and all i do is water them. It smells and feels cleaner in my new apartment which another plus or advantage to to say then the artificial palm trees. But hey I have had artificial ones and they do justice but nothing like the real deal.

Default I think real palm trees are better.

Artificial palm trees look gross in a home and like someone posted, they tend to gather dust, which does not look appealing.

Default So I think REAL PALM TREES is Going to Win.

Being that this is a real palm tree site lol i think the favoritism will be towards real palm trees. But you never know. A clan of artificial palm tree lovers could swipe through here and win the poll. lol.... Did any one see the presidential debate... Crazy, talk about battling each other. Most of the debate was geared at each other rather then us the people. Who actually make everything work. Well i know this was off subject but yeah. Real Palm Trees All The way In my Opinion.
