Moss Wall Art: Popular Questions Answered - Art Botanica

Living Walls vs. Preserved Moss Walls, what's the difference?

Living walls are growing plants inside of walls, while preserved moss walls have had the moisture removed from the moss and are therefore self sustaining.

Moss is one of nature's most beautiful creations. It grows naturally in damp areas such as streams, ponds, and bogs. When preserved it becomes soft to the touch and is vibrant in color. The process is preserving moss art is done by removing the water/moisture content from the plant and replacing it with glycerol. This allows the plant to maintain it's green color.

Does moss wall art need sunlight?

Moss is a great way to add color and texture to any room. It doesn't require direct sunlight, so it works well indoors or out.

Preserved moss walls are made by placing moss in a container and then filling the container with preservative solution. Once the moss is fully submerged, the solution is allowed to dry out completely.

Preserved Moss Art Wall Care

The absolute best thing about preserved moss vs. live moss is that is requires zero maintenance! The moss has been preserved by removing the water content and replacing it with glycerol which allows the moss to maintain it's vibrance, and also allows the moss to remove the need for constant hydration and monitoring of sunlight levels etc.

Indoor Vs. Outdoor Moss Wall Care

When buying a moss art wall, we personally feel it is best to purchase a preserved item if you are someone who has little time to care for the item. Preserved moss walls are extremely versatile. Meaning that once purchased you can place your unique wall art piece indoors or outdoors and simply enjoy it's beauty.
