Q. ARE SUPERMOSS MOSSES ALIVE?
A. No, although we try to make the most lifelike preserved mosses available, SuperMoss mosses have been dried and/or preserved. They are not alive, but we appreciate you asking! 🙂
Q. HOW LONG WILL THE MOSS LAST?
A. Longevity depends on how it is handled and where it is used. Exposure to the elements such as the sun, UV light, and heat will cause color fading and shorten lifetimes of natural products.
Q. DO YOUR MOSSES HAVE CHEMICALS?
A. Our color-enhanced and preserved mosses use non-toxic preserving agents that are GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) for color enhancing and typical human use. They are safe for people, pets, and plants. If you’re looking for a completely chemical/additive free products, you’ll want to stick with dried products like our sphagnum and bark.
Q. ARE THE COLORS COLORFAST?
A. Color transfer and color bleeding may occur under certain conditions. Use caution to protect surfaces and fine finishes especially in high humidity conditions. Colors maybe be removed easily with standard cleaning solutions.
Q. ARE YOUR PRODUCTS SAFE AROUND PETS?
A. Our moss products are historically safe around large pets and our natural products have no issues whatsoever. For pets in terrariums, we recommend the non-preserved and naturally dried mosses. The only product that we specifically do not recommend for pets is Wolfen Lichen.
