One way to tell if an indoor plant is a plastic or a real one is to touch its leaves. Have you wondered why real leaves feel cooler? If you look at the leaves, artificial or real, through an IR camera, you will see neither because both are almost at ambient temperature. So why does a real leaf feel cooler?

This video compares the heating pattern of a dry leaf and a fresh leaf from the same plant.

Another video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LGfri...) shows that the difference is not vitalistic.
