Artificial Plants and Flowers Delivery or Pickup

The Instacart buying guide to artificial plants

Adding a touch of greenery to your living space brings many benefits. Being surrounded by plants can help reduce feelings of stress, while having greenery in your workspace can help improve your productivity. But if you don't exactly have a green thumb or it's hard for you to remember to water plants, the thought of bringing greenery into your space may not be appealing.

Artificial plants are the ideal solution, as they provide many of the same benefits without requiring any care. You can depend on Instacart to help you find sources for beautiful plants that look like the real thing. Browse local selections and place your order through Instacart for quick delivery or pickup.

FAQs about artificial plants

Many retailers offer artificial plants, but the selections at certain places are better than others. Instacart makes it easy to shop for artificial plants at your favorite stores online so you don't have to leave your home.

Target has a wide selection of options in-store, including floral arrangements and taller trees. Hobby Lobby is another place to shop for artificial greenery. Most of these store locations are quite large, so browsing the selection online and picking out what you want can save time and effort.

You can also shop for high-quality fake plants at The Home Depot and Lowe's. If you want individual sprigs of artificial greenery, check out local craft stores such as Michaels and JOANN Fabric and Craft Store. These shops both offer floral and plant sprigs, enabling you to put together your own artificial arrangement.

Decorating your home with artificial plants can add a splash of color and a natural feel to the space. If you're wondering whether you should add faux greenery, you may worry that the plants won't look realistic. By shopping for plants that include unique and realistic details, you may even fool yourself into believing that they're real, which means those who visit the space probably won't be able to tell that they're artificial.

Although some view artificial plants as tacky, their popularity has continued to grow in the recent past. Many of the top interior designers and decorators have started incorporating faux greenery into their designs. Mario Buatta, an American interior decorator known as "the Prince of Chintz", was one of the first to incorporate flowery fabrics and cheery faux plants into designs.

Artificial plants require very little care. You certainly don't have to worry about getting them in the sunlight or keeping their soil moist. The only task you really need to do from time to time is clean the leaves and stems to remove any accumulated dust. It's best to use a soft cloth to remove dust, rather than using any type of dusting polish or other products. Too much shine on the plant can be a dead giveaway that it's not real.

If your artificial plants get dirty, you can use a solution made of equal parts white vinegar and water. Shake it in a spray bottle and apply it to the plant, then gently wipe it away with a soft, dry cloth. For tough buildup or stains, allow the solution to sit on the plant for about 5 minutes before wiping it away.

The placement of your artificial plants will impact how long they last in your home. If you place a silk plant in direct sunlight, such as next to a window, you can expect it to maintain its appearance for about two to three months. The UV rays from the sun will cause the materials to fade.

You can find UV-treated and UV-resistant plants, which are often designed for outdoor use. These have a coating that protects against UV rays and can last for several years in direct sunlight. If you keep your plants out of direct sunlight, you can expect them to last for years.

Some artificial plants can stay outdoors, especially if they have a UV coating. These plants are meant for use outdoors, so you can place them on a front or back porch or patio to brighten up the area. The most durable type of outdoor plant is known as UV-infused, which includes a poly-blend material that's resistant to the effects of UV rays.
