best silk plants

What silk plants do you think are the best? I'm looking for the most natural looking ones (of course)

I ordered 4 sizes of SeaGarden's Curly Crispus today and would like a couple different varieties to go with them

I love the Sea Garden varieties. That's about the only version of silk plant that I have seen that I like so far. So, Unfortanetly, I have no advice, expect to give kudos to Sea Garden.

Good luck on finding some.

What kind of fish do you have? I have bettas, so I only use silk plants with them. I have the Sea Garden Curly Crispus plants. They look very nice, but they have a bit of a brownish color to them. I also have some base plants from Imagine, and they are a much darker green. The base plants don't really match the curly crispus (but that will not matter to the fish!) But I am kind of looking for base plants that will match the crispus a little better. I also have a few Penn Plax silk plants that I also like, but can't find anymore.

P.S. If I remember correctly, the crispus had a pointy, white plastic flower in the leaves. I cut this part off so it wouldn't hurt the betta.
