But decorating with plants has its drawbacks, as you are probably thinking, because freshly picked flowers or plants are spectacularly beautiful but, when they lose their freshness, their glamor also disappears. Will you have to be changing your eucalyptus leaves every now and then? It is not necessary, because what we do to make our decoration with plants last longer is to resort to preservation.
