FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE PRESERVED FLOWERS AND PLANTS?
Preserved flowers and plants are 100% natural. Plant preservation is a totally ecological process that replaces the natural sap of the flower by a biodegradable plant liquid. For the best results, plants are preserved at the time of their life cycle when they display their most beautiful appearance. They are harvested in optimal conditions and respecting the environment. They're not toxic and can be touched by pets and people. Thanks to that natural preserving technique, preserved plants and flowers retain their flexibility and their natural freshness without any maintenance. If kept in optimal conditions, they last many years. For more information about the preservation process please check our blog.
WHAT MAINTENANCE IS REQUIRED?
All preserved plants and flowers are maintenance-free. They don't need water, fertilizer or sunlight. The only requirement to maintain all of their beauty is to keep them out of direct sunlight so they don’t discolor and dust them every now and then with a tissue or a hairdryer, taking care not to damage their delicate petals. Of course, please don't press, bend or squash the petals or other parts of the plants. They are delicate and can be damaged very easily. If kept in optimal conditions, preserved flowers and plants last many years. For additional information feel free to browse our blog articles.
HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?
The duration of moss art and flowers is highly dependant on the specific plant/flower and how they're kept. Under ideal conditions (kept indoor, out of direct sunlight, in low humidity and no touching), flat moss lasts at least 4 years while reindeer moss is the longest-lasting botanical, it stays vibrant in texture and color for at least 7-10 years.
Some preserved flowers last a minimum of a couple of years (ie. carnations, English roses), while others are more subject to discoloring and lose their texture quicker (ie. hydrangeas, even though when kept well, they lasts at least one year). In general, white flowers tend to last the longest.
