Bringing Art to Life
Talking about how to #BringNatureIndoors using moss walls, presenters Gabriella Cabezas of BeneittMoss, Simon May of McCaren Designs, Steve Stanford of PLANTZ and Mary Golden of Green Plants for Green Buildings show how to incorporate biophilia into our interior spaces.
Our resident Moss Man Steve Stanford played moderator last week to an in-depth discussion on the very trendy moss wall and moss panel phenomenon at the Tropical Plant International Expo (#TPIE) in Fort Lauderdale. TPIE is the annual gathering of who’s who in the tropical plant cultivation and distribution industry and the moss presentation was heavily attended by professionals from across the USA and the world.
Steve’s job was to make an introduction to the biophilic, economic, and installation aspects of all things moss, and to whet the appetites of attendees with images of creative and vibrant moss applications from around the globe including several of PLANTZ own.
Here are some images that Steve shared from a collection of the industry’s best, and demonstrate how moss can be utilized to boost your biophilic potential, enhance corporate culture, and even improve your brand by showing off your logo in a creative and “green” way.

This tree features a mood moss canopy with a (real) grape vine circle that features the yin yang made out of reindeer moss. The trunk of the tree is also made with (real) bark that features tiny, intricate pieces of moss growing out of various locations.
Northfield Park / Colliers, Bynature & Ginkgosustainability
Custom Design. This patterned moss wall acts as the backdrop to the newly opened coffee shop space. The mixed moss features reindeer moss in dark green and olive, and sheet moss in dark green.
BioMontage panels shown here are individual framed panels of various moss, cork, and bark that can be arranged creatively in virtually unlimited configurations to create custom moss presentations. The frames are available in different colors too. PLANTZ has done a number of these installations in offices throughout west central Florida.
Custom moss displays will bring a colorful or bold vibe to your space. Living plant walls are a trend for incorporating nature into biophilic design and a natural cleaner for interior air spaces by removing VOCs and harmful toxins. Moss walls are truly more than just a pretty face!
Unlike most Florists, PLANTZ services are not complete at the installation of the Moss wall. We take pride in performing maintenance and care for all your Moss wall and other floral needs you may have.
