There are many benefits to choosing silks plants over real plants in your aquarium. Hugo Kamishi has created an extremely realistic range of aquarium plants.
Unlike live plants you wont have to worry about silk plants dying, becoming too large for your tank or even being eaten by your fish and looking tattered and unattractive. Maintaining silk plants is very easy if they become dirty or covered with algae you can simply remove them from your tank and clean them without worrying about damaging roots, and because they are never in an aquarium before your own, they will not bring in pests or parasites from other places.
Silk plants have no light requirements, as opposed to living plants which often require lighting beyond what the average fish keeper has for their aquarium. There are so many options available reds, purples and greens ranging from 13cm - 50cm giving you the option to be as under or over stated as you like with your decorations.
