As so many people are curious about preserved moss, how to maintain a moss wall, where to install a moss frame and much more... here is a brief guide on the most common moss art FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)!

What is moss art?

Moss art is an innovative and environmentally friendly art form that combines the beauty of nature with artistic expression. Moss art utilizes preserved moss, meticulously arranged on frames or panels to create stunning, low-maintenance art pieces. It's an exciting intersection of design, sustainability, and biophilic aesthetics. This unconventional art form combines the striking look of a modern piece of art with the intense sensory experience of the colors and textures of nature on the wall. The lush, vibrant colors and textures of moss wall art can transform any space into a serene oasis.

What are the benefits of moss art?

Beyond its undeniable beauty, moss art offers a series of advantages:

  • Biophilic Design: Moss art embodies biophilic design principles, fostering a sense of well-being by bringing nature indoors. Studies show it can reduce stress, improve mood, lower blood pressure and even enhance productivity and cognitive function.

  • Versatility: Moss art complements any design style, from modern minimalism to rustic charm.

Is moss art real moss?

Yes! The moss used in art is absolutely real and natural, sustainably harvested by hand and professionally preserved through a special process that maintains its lush texture and vibrant color for years to come.

Does moss art need maintenance?

No! Preserved moss art requires no maintenance as the moss is no longer living, it does not need any watering, sunlight, pruning or misting. Moss wall frames don't even attract much dust, however, depending on the location where they're installed, they may accumulate a bit of dust which can be gently removed with a soft cloth or a cool air blow (from a common hairdryer).

Where can I install a moss wall?

Preserved moss has to be kept indoors, this is the main requirement of any moss wall or moss art made with preserved moss and plants. To maximize the lifespan of your moss art, please keep it out of direct sunlight and away from direct heat/air conditioning sources. If you place your moss art on a dark spot like a corridor, it will thrive for many years while adding a green touch to a place where living plants would not survive!

How to hang a moss panel or moss frame?

Preserved moss is very light so a standard-size frame or panel can be easily hung on any type of wall with standard hanging hooks or 3M strips. Extra large moss frames or panels may require different tools, read more details in our moss wall art installation blog post.

Is moss art suitable for a bathroom?

Yes and no! Preserved moss doesn't thrive in humid spaces (which is why it has to be kept indoors), therefore a bathroom where people take showers would not be the best choice. However, it would suit a small guest bathroom with no shower in sight!

Is moss art safe for people with allergies?

Yes! Preserved moss is no longer living so it's completely safe for people with allergies and hayfever.

How long does moss art last?

This is the number 1 moss art FAQ for a moss artist! The duration of a moss wall is highly dependent on the type of preserved moss used and the conditions in which the moss frame is kept.
