Our #1 choice out of all the best artificial plants is the Nearly Natural Ficus Silk Tree. This tree is not good for someone with space constraints, as it is six feet tall and 35 inches wide (If you’re looking for something smaller, try ElaDeco Artificial Plant Boxwood Stems instead). Even though it is a big artificial plant it still has free shipping – a giant plus in our book!

Why We Like It – Nearly Natural 5209 Ficus Silk Tree

The Nearly Natural 5209 Ficus Silk Tree is the perfect “something” to add to your office space. Requiring almost no maintenance, this “plant” works great to fill up a corner with over 1,000 leaves.

Pros
  • Low Maintenance
  • Affordable
  • Looks Full With Over 1,000 Leaves
Cons
  • Doesn’t Come With A Nursery Pot
  • You Can Tell It’s Fake If You’re Right In Front of It

Performance

This ficus tree may need to be reshaped when it is first taken out of the box. Besides that, you won’t run into any issues with this silk tree! This tree looks realistic until you walk right up on it, so it should be enough to fool the average passerby. At six feet tall it has a commanding presence that’s sure to add the right amount of “nature” to your office space, entranceway, or apartment. Maintenance is simple, like with most artificial plants. Simply wipe it off with a soft dry cloth to clean it.

Design

Unlike Butterfly Craze Artificial Lavender Artificial Plants, the leaves on this plant are actually made of silk. The plant is available in a variety of sizes, from the smaller 36 inch to the largest 84 inch variety. All of these varieties are guaranteed to have over 1000 individual leaves on them, which is what makes this tree look so realistic. The trees come in a small non-decorative plant pot, so you will probably want to switch the plant over to a different pot.

Value

This plant costs more than four times the price of LuckyGreenery Artificial Plant Succulents, but it’s also 16 times bigger. A six-foot tall plant for less than $60 is very affordable! One downside is that you will inevitably have to replace the pot that it comes with, so that will cost you a little bit of money. While this plant is not a “true” plant, you also won’t have to spend time watering it or replacing it if it dies. If six feet isn’t big enough for you, they also offer an 84 inch ficus tree for $94.79.

Nearly Natural 5209 Ficus Silk Tree Wrap Up

This large and impressive ficus tree is a steal at $60. The fact that they offer even bigger sizes is impressive enough, and although you will have to replace the pot for this tree, you nonetheless make out like a bandit when it comes to this product. If you’re looking for a tall and realistic tree for your office, this is it.
