Stabilized moss what is it?
The most popular decoration in the form of spore plants is stabilized greens. It is produced from real formations, which can be seen in forests, near water bodies. Their treatment is carried out by removing moisture, introducing a stabilizing agent. It translates moss into a dream state, thereby producing its conservation. "Renewed" greens do not need watering or feeding. In addition, the ingress of moisture onto such a cover is devastating. Also, the stabilized greenery should be located away from direct sunlight. The effect of ultraviolet light will lead to its gradual fading and subsequent death. It does not tolerate frosts, so it is not used to decorate orchards, flower beds.

For example, individual pieces of lightweight panels can be used to create abstractions, stylized patterns on the walls.

- consisting of monochromatic elements (laid out from plants of the same shade, attracted by volume texture);
- consisting of multi-colored elements (include spore plants in green, blue and other colors, can be an abstraction or a full-fledged picture);
- products with other plants (supplemented with herbarium or other stabilized flowers, herbs);
- patterned products (in them the greens are laid out at a certain distance from each other, creating three-dimensional ornaments);

Furniture with moss elements
The most popular option for stylization spore plants is the design of tables. For example, in a room or bedroom you can set a coffee table, the table top is decorated with greenery. If desired, it can be covered with glass, preventing dust from entering or creating a relief surface. For writing and dining tables, the location of a narrow strip of greenery in the part of the tabletop located close to the wall is acceptable. For stand-alone models, let's assume the option of placing a strip of stabilized plants directly in the center of the tabletop. Non-standard styling can be carried out for the sofa strap, located behind the back. We will apply this option also for the design of the armrests. The upper part of the bed head can also be decorated with stabilized greenery. A simple solution will be the mossy closing of several cells of a wooden rack, installed in a hall, bedroom or hallway.
Compositions of moss

To implement such ideas, even large laboratory flasks can be used. No less original look spore balls with wooden dishes: plates, trays. Beautifully look stylized dishes from twigs, deer horns, wooden chips, decorated with green stabilized plants (formed from them balls and cubes).
Operation and maintenance
It is quite easy to take care of stabilized plants. But it is worth considering that they are short-lived. For example, wall panels can last about 7 years, but the paintings and compositions will preserve their original appearance for no more than 5 years. Change these features can not be. To maintain a healthy state and the type of plants do not need to spend their watering, processing from insects. But at very low humidity, they can begin to dry up. In this case, it is recommended to install a humidifier in the room or place a couple of containers with clean water near the spore green. Plants are completely antistatic, so you do not have to clean them from dust. But we need to pay special attention to the decorated with greenery products in houses where young children live and animals are kept. Despite the manufacturers' claims, not all "canned" plants are safe.
