Mood moss is a soft, luxurious, dark green moss that adds dramatic textures and depth to any Quiet Earth Moss design.
What is Mood Moss?
Mood moss grows in thick, lush clumps, resembling a forest canopy or a velvety carpet in the woodlands. Known for its unique texture and deep green coloring, mood moss gives the illusion of windblown treetops, accentuating its biophilic design properties.
The scientific name for mood moss is Dicranum scoparium-- a species that grows prolifically throughout the United States, Asia, parts of Europe, and other regions sprinkled with damp, humid woodlands.
Dicranum scoparium is termed mood moss because of its “temperamental” appearance that changes according to humidity and ambient moisture levels. Mood moss can appear puffy and vibrant with deep emerald hues, and other times wavy and stringy. While mood moss can survive in less than ideal conditions, there is still upkeep and maintenance for interior applications. For this reason, many designers choose to work with preserved mood moss, whether it’s for a framed moss panel, decorative art piece, or custom moss wall.
Here at Quiet Earth Moss, we harvest and preserve mood moss at peak freshness, using natural oils and dyes. The result is a maintenance-free product that can be utilized in many interior spaces, including offices, schools, medical clinics, and corporate buildings.
