Most Realistic Silk Plants? #1
Hi!

I'm looking into purchasing a batch of silk plants for a new tank that I'm currently setting up. I purchased a job lot of cheap silk plants on e-bay recently and although the leaves look fairly realistic the stems are just cheap shiney plastic. Can anyone give me advice on what the most realistic silk plants are to buy on the market? I've heard good things about the Colourburst range but they seem to be quite expensive?

I got the colourburst ones from Amazon, they are quite good but still have the plastic stems.

Thanks for the reply. I might just stick with the cheap ones I bought then if the stems on the Colourburst range are shiney plastic too. The leaves on these ones look fairly realistic but the plastic stems let them down a bit.

PFK featured an article on Sydeco artifical plants about a year ago. They aquascape looked pretty good from the pictures in the magazine at the time. Might be worth a look?
