Artificial palms can be found in many varieties, sizes, and shapes. Palm trees can come with synthetic or natural trunks as well. This guide will help you make a difference.
The first problem to solve is whether you need a plant on the ground or a tree in full size. In general, floor plants are between 2 and 4 feet tall and trees start at 5 feet tall. The choice of trees is wider than that of plants.
Most fake palm trees are about 3 feet tall and are small versions of the normal-sized tree. They are great for placing on a table or putting in an entrance or reception area that has limited space. Almost all of these items will be potted in a basket or base pot. I recommend buying a decorative planter that is slightly larger and that drops the plant. Be sure to cover the top with moss or greenery (like a decorative artificial grass).
One can usually find life-size artificial palms from 5 "to 12". height. The 5-6 trees are the most popular. False palm trees are sold both in pot and not stained. For non-deposited plants, place the trunk in a planter and surround it with decorative stone. For potted trees, I recommend buying a decorative planter and dropping the tree in it. Be sure to cover the top with moss or greenery. Large trees will give you more area to fill, which makes greenery a very nice touch.
Despite the perception of Hollywood, there is a wide variety of palms. The two most popular varieties are Areca Palms and Coconut Palms. The following is a breakdown of the most common artificial palms:
Areca Artificial Palm : Areca palms are found in multi trunk or single trunk versions. The multi-trunk versions are very popular in homes and offices because they are very full and green. Single chest versions seem more tropical. Arec Palms can be trained to be tall and lean or wide.

These are found in single trunk versions and can be found with or without a foldable base. The foldable bases are ideal for recreating a wind-swept island look. The trees have a large flat canopy. These work well in areas where the canopy is not annoying and the atrium in a mall or open space in an office or home.

Artificial date palms: Date palms are similar in look to coconut. They have a big flat canopy on a single trunk. Date palms are what you usually see in Southern California. The trunks are very distinctive because they are very thick near the canopy. They are very popular in homes and offices in the southwestern United States.

Synthetic or natural trunks: Artificial palm trees are sold with both types of trunks. Natural trunks will look more realistic on the front but they are more delicate. Artificial trunks usually look real until you are very close. Flexible trunks are usually synthetic and most synthetic trunks give greater flexibility in shaping.
