Moss in the woods: A magnificent sight!
Do you also love to roam through the woods in the colourful autumn? Or do you remember how you built your first figure showcase as a child with the most beautiful moss as a base? It was this very moss that inspired us to create an art variation of it. But what do we know about the plant as it grows in nature? Well, over the years we've learned a lot.
There is a science that focuses on the study of mosses: bryology - in English, the science of mosses. It refers to mosses as foliose mosses, which are defined as small, herbaceous plants that grow singly or close together on rocks, soil, stems, leaves or trees. The collections are called cushions or mats.
There are many different types of moss, but most of them are green and attach themselves to roots, which in technical jargon are called rhizoids. If you look more closely, however, mosses have neither roots with which they absorb nutrients nor true leaves. In Europe, we mainly find sphagnum mosses, which are known for their high water retention capacity. They play an important role in typical landscape design.
Our realistic looking fake moss is a perfect replica
All the different species, the different shapes and characters: moss is so popular and popular for a reason. So it was out of the question for us, as a supplier of high-quality artificial greenery, to pay our respects to this special plant by selling an artificial version of it. We went in search of quality mosses at affordable prices. We found this with some suppliers and not with others, simply because the moss looked badly imitated, its quality was not good enough for us, or because it discoloured or decayed in a very short time. In a few cases, we decided to get behind the drawing board ourselves because, as you know, we are the market leader in artificial greenery and stand for a lifelike and varied exclusivity that is almost indistinguishable from the original. Why else would you choose an artificial plant from Maxifleur?

Artificial moss species at Maxifleur
Real moss comes in countless types and radiations. The same applies to the artificial moss that you will find in our range. Our artificial moss is available in a wide variety of designs: Our 100 x 100 centimetre standard moss mat, for example, has a soft base covered with a layer of moss like we know it from the forest: flat, green and with a few yellow spots here and there. With its authentic, black, somewhat earthy-looking base, this mat looks as if you took it out of the forest. It is ideal to be used as a base in an arrangement or container. We also offer a range of moss mat types that are striking for their playful and vibrant appearance. They are again an optimal choice for creating a green wall. The most luxurious variant in this class is our Honey moss mat, which is also available as a UV version. You want to cover very large areas with artificial moss? No problem! Our inexpensive, 50 x 50 centimetre, UV-resistant promotional mat is the perfect solution. Would you like something a little more special? Then you'll love our reindeer moss. If you look closely, you will discover one or two grey antlers in this fairytale reindeer moss mat.
The use of moss on mats
Moss is so incredibly versatile, yet it always remains neutral. For this reason, it forms the perfect basis for creative arrangements. You will love our artificial moss mats. Most can be joined together, making them practical to use - especially when it comes to covering larger areas. For example, you can use our artificial moss mats to create a metre-high or ell-long green wall. Or stretch them on a frame and use them as a partition. Imagine how well artificial moss mats would look as an attractive and natural-looking artificial hedge between two rooms, on terraces, between desks or on balconies. The size of the frame on which artificial moss is clicked is 25 x 25 or 50 x 50 centimetres. Assuming you choose the smaller version, you will need 16 artificial moss sheets for one square metre. Our large moss mat measuring 100 x 100 centimetres can also be used as a green wall. It has a soft base into which other plants can easily be inserted, but it cannot be combined with other mats.
Artificial moss for outdoor use
The moss, which originally comes from the forest, should only be used indoors? Conversely, this would mean that the plants would discolour in the sunlight within a very short time if you were to put them outdoors. So you would never be able to put a beautiful green wall, a metre-high moss hedge or an atmospheric moss fence in a sunny place. No, we certainly didn't want that and for that reason we looked for a product that wouldn't mind the sun. Since we did not find such a specimen, we decided to experiment on our own. After years of development, marked by successes and failures, we can now present the solution: With our unique UV protection, we guarantee that your plant will not discolour in the sun for eight years. You can recognise products equipped in this way by the special UV-resistant logo, such as that found on this artificial moss mat.
