You have already ordered an elegant silk plant to ameliorate your home or office setting and are very excited for its arrival. When you get the delivery of your silk plant or tree, one important thing that needs attention is the proper unboxing and shaping of the plant. The process of shaping and unboxing is quite easy and quick, and it does not require much effort.
Unboxing your Silk Plant
For unboxing silk plants, you will require a set of pliers and a flat head screwdriver to perform this task. If there are any staples on the box covering of your plant, use a screwdriver or suitable pliers to remove them. The next thing that should be done is to carefully take the artificial plant out of the box. Take the necessary precautions to see that the silk plant is not damaged.
Shaping your Silk Plant
Once the plant is safely taken out of the box, the only thing that remains is to shape it properly and give it a beautiful appearance. Begin this process from the bottom of the silk tree. Bend the leaves of the foliage in the downwards direction and slightly turn them towards the outer side. Continue to do the same as you move towards the top of the foliage using both your hands. Sometimes, the leaves or flowers get bent during shipping, so shape the leaves with a delicate touch which will make them look graceful in the light just like a realistic plant. Do not try to rush this process as it can lead to damage and take away the feel of your loving plant. If you have any difficulty while shaping the silk plant, you can always refer back to its original image and work in accordance with it.
