Interior decoration with plants is an upward trend in both private and public spaces. Vertical gardens or the creation of indoor green areas provide a natural touch that conveys a sense of serenity that invites relaxation and, of course, the enjoyment of the five senses.
Interior decoration with live plants and flowers is not always possible due to the need for special conditions, for example adequate space, sunlight and watering. This problem is solved by substituting fresh plants and flowers for preserved vegetation on a base of leaves and foliage of distinct varieties. At Verdissimo you will find different varieties of moss and other species with which you can make all kinds of interior compositions: vertical gardens, murals or wall panels and tiles.

What is preserved moss?
They are fresh plants that have undergone a delicate conservation and stabilization process. During this process the sap is substituted by a compound made with glycerine which allows the plant to maintain the same feel and appearance as the fresh plant for a long time. The aesthetic results that preserved vegetation offers are surprisingly natural and they have endless possibilities both in interior floral decoration and ornamentation and in floral art compositions.
You can personalize your projects with moss ball, flat moss, lichens or grass, thanks to the wide selection of varieties that you will find in Verdissimo, and to the wide range of colours, textures and finishes.
You will also find the greatest variety of preserved flowers and plants for the floral decoration in your catering business, hotel or office. Do you have a florist shop? Make your business profitable with long-lasting floral arrangements: bridal bouquets, crowns of flowers for communions and all kinds of personalised compositions.
Does preserved moss grow?
As we’ve mentioned previously, the sap in preserved plants is replaced with a compound that keeps them in perfect condition for a long time. For this reason, no preserved product is capable of growing, since it maintains the look of the flower or plant when treated.
After telling you this, we can assure you that preserved moss doesn’t grow and remains preserved in the same way for months and even years.
Types of preserved moss at Verdissimo
At Verdissimo, we have different types of preserved moss. In this article, we’ll tell you what each one of them is for:
Usually this type of moss is used on plant walls to break up the harshness of the space and to give it a fresh touch. It’s often used in oriental decoration, such as Feng Shui decoration.
Moss balls are also often used in Feng Shui decoration and on plant walls. However, this type of moss, which has a very intense green color, is also suitable for floral compositions.
The lichen we’re talking about is known as Cetraria islandica. Typically this species of moss propagates easily on tree bark in order to conserve moisture.

Verdissimo’s Preserved Moss Decoration Projects
Preserved moss is the star product of the décor of a restaurant in Madrid called Sushita Café, a place where they put up spectacular plant walls composed primarily of preserved moss.
Green Decorum’s goal when carrying out this décor project was to transmit, both to the customers and to the workers, specific feelings such as serenity, peace, and relaxation.
Of all the ornamental compositions that they created a Sushita Café, the ones that stood out the most were the aforementioned vertical gardens surrounding the rectangular mirrors located behind the main bar.
La Palma Airport
During the first phase of decorating La Palma Airport they used preserved moss because it’s one of Verdissimo’s freshest products; specifically, they used spheres of ball moss since they make a perfect detail for interior décor with natural themes.
In this case, the project included pieces of large-sized ball moss placed throughout the hallways with the goal of generating visual impact and making the path for visitors through the airport a more pleasant one. They also created little gardens with flat moss and a green wall composed principally of moss.
The style created in this space has a very distinctive zen air about it thanks to the combination of the spheres, the sand, and the bonsais.
Vuelta a España
Verdissimo’s preserved products were present at last year’s 2016 Vuelta a España. The scenery of this famous event was divided into three parts: The Neptune Zone, The Red Zone, and the Podium.
Preserved moss was seen only in the Neptune Zone in the form of balls of lichen, a very well-known species of moss plant that brings an aura of nature, freshness, and life to a space.
This project was carried out by Green Decorum, and the company decided to use Verdissimo’s lichen balls for the décor because the spherical shape helps to create much more avant-garde environments.
The décor for a company called Telenor, a famous Norwegian mobile phone company, is one project where Verdissimo’s preserved moss really stands out quite considerably.
Thanks to this versatile product, they were able to give the spaces in the company’s facilities their very own modern, innovative touch. The final results are especially jaw-dropping thanks to the balance of the environment, mixed with dynamic and static details.
