Artificial Plants

I found some fake small ivy like plant at Hobby Lobby. Would like to use it to wrap around air hose to make it look better than just a black hose laying in the tank. Is this type of fake floral ok for aquarium if you let it soak a couple of days?

It should be. If it is a plastic, soak it in boiling water for a few seconds. Were there any marking on the box? What did the packaging say?

I've used silk plants from the dollar store. Make sure there isn't any metal in the stems.

Stems have metal but covered in plastic. No box no packaging.

If it has a "pretty" smell to it, it's not aquarium safe from what I've read.
