We manually check for the structural integrity of delicate ZERO Moss species with tweezers by intentionally applying some mechanical forces, a process before moving to packaging and shipping.
Different moss species have an individual "structural" profile.
Complete preservation in our lab retains the main characteristics of moss, such as its fluffiness. That would also mean that the nature of moss is well preserved, such as the tendency to dislocate part of its leaves as "moss fragments", which is one of the ways moss propagate in nature.
Thus, our standard practice is to select moss before its peak reproductive stage to preserve it for optimal aesthetic stability in our botanical collections & preserved moss terrariums.
While it is natural for a few leaf blades of moss to dislocate during transport, we ensure that prominent and eye-catching structures remain intact.
