What type of silk orchid can I get? There are several types available and several retail places that have natural looking arrangements available. When it comes to adding a great accent piece to your décor, you want it to be vibrant and have a high standard of quality. Your local florist normally carries some of the more realistic artificial floral pieces and you will also find on line some excellent quality products and also should save yourself a few bucks on these wonderful pieces.

Why would you want to use these realistic silk orchids? There are harder plants to grow than the delicate orchid, but there are still many things that you have to do and watch in the care of orchids.

With just a little reading and research along with a few proper tools, you will be able to do your own silk orchid arrangements in your favorite vase for your home or office. Now, it will take a little time to get real efficient in producing these excellent pieces, so be sure to look at both issues in the production or just purchasing them for you particular needs.

Do silk orchids look real? There was a time several years ago that the artificial plants were very hard looking and when people would see them, the first words out of their mouth was, "that is fake as can be." A vast majority of people now have to go up and touch or even smell to make sure of what they are looking at.

How do you care for the natural looking Cattleya or any other kind of silk flower arrangement? As you are doing your normal dusting around the office and home, be sure not to miss the silk plants. If this is done on a regular basis, a deeper cleaning will not be needed except once or twice a year.
