Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions?

ARE THE PLANTS IN THE PICTURES AND WALLS REAL?

Yes, styleGREEN uses only real plants that are naturally preserved in a special process using glycerin and food coloring. This permanently preserves the plants and does not require any maintenance.

HOW ARE THE PLANTS PRESERVED?

The special preservation process is based on water, food colouring and glycerin and is therefore completely harmless regarding health. In an exchange process, the water in the plant is replaced by glycerin and the chlorophyll is replaced by food colouring.

DO THE PLANTS REQUIRE CARE?

No, no maintenance is necessary. On the contrary, the preserved plants should never be watered under any circumstances. They also don’t require light and their antistatic properties prevent them from collecting dust. In short: 100% natural, 0% care.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THEY'RE EXPOSED TO DIRECT SUNLIGHT OR HEATING?

In direct sunlight, the mosses can fade after 2 to 3 years. It should therefore be avoided whenever possible. In addition, you should not hang the products near or over heat sources, as the glycerin does not tolerate it well.

WHERE CAN THE PRODUCTS BE USED?

As long as the air humidity is not more than 70%, the plant pictures and walls can be used in all interior spaces – such as in the living, sleeping or dining room, in offices and conference rooms, in public buildings or at trade shows. The preserved plants are not suited for use in outdoor areas.

DO THE PLANTS CHANGE THE ACOUSTICS IN A SPACE?

Yes, the preserved plants act as soft natural material similar to soundproofing elements and reduce both noise and reverberation in enclosed spaces.

DO THE PLANTS HAVE AN ODOR?

Because they are natural plants and mosses, they do have the typical natural odor, which dissipates over time. Our fragrance sprays also help to make the smell evaporate more quickly.

DO THE PLANT PICTURES LOOK EXACTLY AS THEY DO IN THE PHOTOS?

No, not completely. On the one hand, our pictures are made by hand. On the other hand, the plants are natural products and have variations in color and form. Each picture is unique.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO REINVIGORATE THE COLOR OF THE PLANTS?

Yes. Should the mosses lose their color intensity due to time, high humidity or direct sunlight, you can order a natural after-dye spray from us.

DO THE PICTURES GATHER DUST

No, because of the anti-static effect and the slight air movement in the room no dust gathers on the plants. Some dust may collect on the frames.

ARE THE PICTURES SUITABLE FOR ALLERGY SUFFERERS

Yes, as the pictures are made of real plants that are naturally preserved and therefore are not alive any more, the pictures are ideal for allergy sufferers.

Why does the reindeer moss get dry and what can I do?

Especially in winter, when humidity is low because of heating and less airing, the moss can get dry. Please don’t spray the moss directly as this may dissolve the salt and the food colouring. Try instead to increase humidity, for example by airing more often or with a humidifier. However, the moss will not be affected permanently as long as there is no mechanic exposure. As soon, as humidity increases it will get soft again.
