Meamea Green Walls & Preserved Plants

Having done a brief stint in interior plant design, I know that sometimes, you just have to specify silk plants.  (As much as I hated to do it).   There are some companies that make fake plants so realistic that you have to touch just to know, but now there is meamea who is preserving plants with glycerin so that you can have the real thing in a place with not enough foot-candles of light.    The glycerin (which is 100% biodegradable and very similar to sugar) replaces all the sap in a plant so that it will keep it’s life like qualities for color and texture when placed in the dark corner.  It is a wonderful ‘green’ alternative for commercial properties.

Even more interesting though…meamea is making greenwall components of the same preserved plants.  I love green walls for both their visual appeal and the improved air quality that they can bring to a building, but they are just not an option for so many sites.  With the preserved panel though, the green wall effect can go anywhere.
