moss on trees

The Natural Green Of Ireland Part 2

Moss is everywhere in Ireland.  In the forests, on rocks and trees, on headstones and ancient castles, and especially on little used secondary roads!

We often get asked by clients why we don’t use live green moss in the groundcover of our office plants and big interior plantings.

I think these pics from Ireland illustrate why:  Ireland is rainy and cool in general, and green sheet moss needs an outdoor environment to live in.  We could install it in the soil at the base of our office plants but it would brown and die because an indoor environment lacks  the temperature, light level and humidity to support it.

Still, it looks pretty cool growing on these trees!
