TYPES OF GREENERY WE USE

ScandiMoss uses 5 main types of materials, Reindeer Moss, Bun Moss, Flat Moss, Immersed Stabilised Plants , Preserved flowers and various combinations of these, to create unique pieces.

GREEN WALLS

Stabilised Moss

  • BETTER VALUE FOR MONEY – Because they last longer than fresh flowers, moss and preserved plants are simply more economical with a higher ROI in the long term. No maintenance is needed, no further investment in upkeep or replacing dying plants. This is a work of art meant to stand the test of time.

  • ALWAYS FRESH– Preserved flowers and moss arrangements are not constrained by time pressure. Arrangements can be prepared ahead of time for collection and still look fresh as on the day of the event. Your moss wall or canvas will keep its form, texture and colour for up to 10 years provided it is protected from prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, >40%  high humidity or extreme dryness.  Moss dries when air humidity falls below 40% which is the normal indicated for people, and softness is obtained at humidity above 40%.

  • MAINTENANCE FREE– No need for sunlight, watering or pruning. Go for  green or any colour of your choice be worry free that your  live wall will need no subsequent investment. This moss will keep its form, texture and colour for tens of years

  • DISCOURAGE PLASTIC– We don’t like plastic and that is why we encourage you to help build a “plastic free world” by choosing stabilised plants that last for years, instead of cutting fresh flowers that will be thrown away as soon as they start to wilt, or plastic flowers or installations that encourage the rise of carbon footprint and are not bio-degradable.

  • SAVE WATER – Moss walls and frames require no water once they have been carefully preserved. Plants  require 5 litres of water to grow to full bloom and remain that way only if the water is always refreshed. Thus over the lifetime of your preserved plants you save hundreds of litres of water

  • MOISTURE ABSORBANT- These installations thrive in place here there is no natural light. Due to its hygroscopic properties the moss absorbs excess moisture, regulates odours and protects from fungi.

  • SOUNDPROOFING – The moss wall panel  insulates the wall and helps regulate the acoustics of spaces that have high levels of reverberation and echo, for better quality sound, soundproofing and privacy. It also helps isolate warmth.

  • ALLERGEN FREE – No pollen or allergens, so no sneezing – These panels are  100% bio-degradable and 100% non-toxic. They provides an allergen free alternative to flowers and do not attract insects.

  • ETHICALLY HARVESTED – Made from Reindeer Moss hand-picked by the best Scandinavian suppliers in Rendalen Norway. The people who are hired to extract it are specially trained for this process, imitating with the hand the reindeer’s bite when ripping it, so that its subsequent development is not affected. Only a limited quantity is collected and the same area is returned for a new extraction only after a minimum of four years, which is why reindeer moss can be difficult to source at times.

  • REDUCED WASTE- Whilst flowers easily wilt and need to be thrown away on a weekly basis or replaced every other week, our moss canvases and plant walls can remain fresh over their lifetime of up to 15 years.

FOLIAGE FRAMES

Flowers & Foliage

  • 100% NATURAL –  Preserved plants are 100% natural  They preserve the beauty or nature but also the advantages of evergreen properties.

  • INDOOR USE ONLY – We recommend the use of these plants only for indoor spaces as they need to be protected from natural elements like sunlight, rain or high humidity and wind.

  • TRIMMING – These plants do not grow back so after any trimming or external damage they will not be restored to their original shape. We advise you not to handle them frequently or touch them.

  • DISCOURAGE PLASTIC  – We don’t like plastic and that is why we encourage you to help build a “plastic free world” by choosing stabilised plants that last for years, instead of cutting fresh flowers that will be thrown away as soon as they start to wilt, or plastic flowers or installations that encourage the rise of carbon footprint and are not bio-degradable.

  • WATERING NOT NEEDED – Our installations are indeed made from real plants, however we discourage any watering or misting.  Over the lifetime of your preserved plant installations or arrangements you save hundreds of litres of water. Also we recommend to keep them in lower than 70% humidity environments, 40% being the normal humidity levels for humans.

  • AVIOD DIRECT SUNLIGHT- These plants do not require sunlight and they thrive in place here there is no natural light. They are perfect for basement or high-basement rooms, restrooms and rooms without windows.

  • COLD RESISTANT – If natural plants only thrive in warm condition, these plants retain their vibrancy even in colder conditions making them perfect for colder spaces that are not easily heated. We also advise not to place them in the direct range of radiators, fireplaces or other types heat sources.

  • ALLERGEN FREE – These plants do not produce any pollen or scents so they provide an allergen free alternative to flowers and do not attract insects.

  • REDUCED WASTE – Whilst flowers easily wilt and need to be thrown away on a weekly basis or replaced every other weeks, our moss canvases and plant walls can remain fresh over their lifetime of up to 15 years.
