FAQs, cleaning, and designing with tropicals:

  • Most faux tropicals like our red Heliconia stem are made with combinations of plastic, polyester, and wire
  • Artificial stems ship flat, but in most cases bendable into more realistic shapes
  • Occasionally dust your stems with a feather duster. Or wipe with a damp cloth. Do not submerge in water.
  • The base stems are sometimes thick and wood-like. Trim with sturdy wire cutters
  • You’ll want to design your tall tropical stems in tall containers. Clear glass is pretty, but baskets and rustic pottery work well, too
  • Now the fun starts. Use as many tropical stems as will fit into your container
  • For bouquets and tropical arrangements, cut, trim, and divide your stems into smaller parts. Sturdy wire cutters will cut through hard bases
  • Think about this simple design rule for arrangements: Use 3, 5, and 7 stems to fill your vase
  • Pairs well with other tropical greenery stems like Monstera and Bird of Paradise
  • Enjoy!

Premium Florals + Honest Price

We curate our artificial plants and flowers only from premium importers in the U.S. What we look for is horticultural realism, although novelty colors and shapes are sometimes fun, too. Then, we offer our florals and supplies at honest prices. We are committed to bringing you the best-in-the-trade stems and home decor at the lowest possible price. 

How do we do that? Let’s start with fulfillment services and shipping. We pack and ship our products. And instead of padding our prices with free shipping, free returns, and fulfillment costs, we believe you should pay an honest price to ship, and only pay for returns if and when you return a product.
