The different types of plant wall art

plant wall frame is defined as a frame in which plants are arranged for a decorative purpose, with dimensions that are adapted to the available space. 

Stabilized plant wall frame

In this case, the piece is composed up of so-called stabilized plants, primarily using plants that can keep the same appearance indefinitely without any maintenance. The frame may consist of mosses or different plants and flowers having undergone a natural preservation process that replaces the sap with a synthetic glycerine solution.

Semi-natural plant wall frame

It uses a plant frame that combines both natural elements, such as a tree bark, and synthetic components such as paper leaves or flowers.

Artificial plant wall frame

As indicated by it's name, this frame is composed only with artificial plants, that do their best to imitate natural plants. For the best possible visual rendering, all of the frame's components are composed of high quality materials. This type of art can be used both indoors and outdoors.

Where should a plant wall frame go?

If you end up choosing a plant wall frame consisting of natural plants, hang it in a place that will be favorable to its development. Place it in a sunny room with an average temperature of 15 to 25 °C. You should however beware of placing it in a spot that is exposed to direct sunlight or near an external heat source (radiator  or south-facing window).

How to maintain a plant wall frame?

To maintain a plant wall frame consisting of natural plants, they are to be watered by filling the tank systems, provided just for this purpose.

Regularly spray the plant's leaves and gently trim the plants that have a tendency to expand outside the frame.

For artificial plants, they only need a good dusting with a cloth.
